I have a Facebook friend in Lebanon called Bilal. He is an avid reader of Bollyblog and keen on the Lancia Stratos. From him I learn that there is a large following of Muscle Cars in Lebanon, that they have a rally series through the villages outside Beirut where Evos reign supreme and classic hillclimbs are not uncommon. They also have weekly organised events called "Desert Sport". I'm not sure if "organised" is the operative word. From the videos it would appear that the purpose is to gather together a bunch of Jeeps (mainly Wranglers) and go mad in the sand dunes. This activity takes place in Saudi Arabia every Friday, their weekends start earlier than ours. They must fly down from Lebanon surely. It would be a long drive and I'm not sure how they would get through Palestine.
