World-renowned UK based restorer JD Classics is proud to extend its partnership with the most storied event in classic motorsport, as it confirms it has been appointed the ‘Exclusive’ Technical and Engineering Partner for the first 1000 Miglia Experience UAE by Octanium Experiences LLC, the exclusive rights holder for 1000 Miglia events in the region.
This extraordinary gathering of the world’s finest classic automobiles will coincide with the 50th Anniversary celebrations of the United Arab Emirates, which was formally formed on December 2nd,1971. The staging of the first 1000 Miglia Experience UAE represents yet another proud achievement for this young nation, which has accomplished global fame as a centre for both business excellence and exotic luxury travel.
Packages for the 1000 Miglia Experience UAE are limited to just 100 participants from all over the world, with most entry packages sold in advance. In addition to being the exclusive Technical and Engineering Partner, JD Classics has also been allocated a limited number of the exclusive 100 entry packages for its special VIP clients.
This first staging of the 1000 Miglia Experience UAE introduces the most famous historic race in the world to a region renowned for its deep love of high-octane machinery and beautiful automobiles. With the near-century of experience of 1000 Miglia, the expertise of Octanium in classic events, and the world-famous reputation of the United Arab Emirates for hospitality, quality, and natural splendour, this event is expected to be a tremendous success.
On the confirmation of JD Classics as a Partner, the Chairman of Woodham Mortimer (parent of JD Classics) and the UK’s First Muslim Government Minister, Shahid Malik said: “We are thrilled to have been appointed as the exclusive ‘Technical & Engineering Partner’ of this inaugural 1000 Miglia Experience UAE.
It is an honour to bring our brand, JD Classics, which represents UK excellence globally, to the UAE, and to be working alongside Octanium Experiences. We have for many years partnered with 1000 Miglia in Italy, and are proud to continue our relationship with Octanium, whose pioneering efforts have resulted in this historic event.
The UAE is the global leader in attracting tourists by building amazing infrastructure and providing perfect experiences, and I have no doubt that was one of the key reasons the Italians broke with 95 years of tradition. We look forward to continuing our long-term involvement with 1000 Miglia, as it expands its footprint across the globe.”
Octanium Founder and CEO Martin Halder commented on the appointment of JD Classics: “We are extremely proud to announce the appointment of JD Classics as our Exclusive Technical and Engineering Partner for the 1000 Miglia Experience UAE.
This world-class leader in automotive restoration brings close to four decades of experience from its home base in the UK and will be joining our event with both technical teams and participants from its own exclusive customer lists.
With JD Classics on board, we are confident that our esteemed participants will have available to them the finest level of technical support and expertise in the region for classic automobiles for this inaugural 1000 Miglia Experience UAE.”
