Rallying for Arabia
decoration
Rallying for Arabia is the slogan Hamed wears in his helmet, a testament to his middle-Eastern background.

Hamed started motorsports with motorcycles while studying in United States. After injuring himself in an accident he gave that up and later started circuit racing. In his native Oman the only available form of circuit racing was karting and that does not carry very far for a motorsport enthusiast.

Rallying was another possibility and in 1996 Hamed acquired Peugeot 205 GTI as his first rally car. Already next year he was starting WRC events in Group N Lancer, finishing 5th in Production Car Cup in 1998 and 2nd in following year. Results were quite good but his age and lack of really breath-taking performances have prevented Hamed of getting official works drive.
