Contest #775 – Al-Shahaniya Camel Racetrack, Qatar

About an hour outside Doha, Al-Shahaniya is one of the premier camel racing venues in the world. Seeing a race here is an interesting event — there are no grandstands. If you want to watch a race, you’ll need to follow along in your car (SUV or pickup actually, the police won’t let you chase the race in anything smaller). You’ll need to have a heavy foot on the accelerator though, as the top speed for these guys is around 40 MPH with very fast acceleration to that point.
