Benghazi, 27 June 2015:
Ajdabiyans have come up with a novel way to take their mind off the troubles that . . .[restrict]have beset their town – dune climbing.
For the second Ramadan in succession competitors have been pitting their vehicles and their driving skills against each other, roaring up a steep dune in pairs outside the town in a spray of sand and grit. The races are watched by appreciative crowds.
One participant told the Libya Herald that anyone who thought they could make it to the top in the fastest time was allowed to enter. So far he said, there had been no serious smashes and no one had been injured.
