Winning Team takes home a brand new GLC Coupe at 2017 Edition of the Mercedes-Benz Rush-A-Way Challenge

The 6th annual Mercedes-Benz Rush-A-Way Challenge by Gargash Enterprises, was held on Friday the 27th of October 2017 in Dubai, and was yet another fantastic day filled with excitement, adventure and physical competitions.

100 teams of 2-4 members gathered at Gems Wellington Academy to participate in an array of challenges that tested their mental, fitness and teamwork abilities in their attempt to win the grand prize: a brand new Mercedes-Benz GLC 250 Coupé. The challenge was based on 7 pit-stops, each with its own challenge, whereby the contestants scored points for finishing off tasks assigned at each pit-stop.

Team Rad Squat completed the challenge with 4,635 points to win and walk away with the grand prize. "We loved every minute of the Mercedes-Benz Challenge as it tested our physical and mental fortitude, as well as our abilities to work together effectively as a team. We can’t wait to take the GLC Coupe for a celebratory spin," team Rad Squat said of the win.

Ivo Kapitzki, the General Manager of the Passenger Cars Division in Gargash Enterprises, commented: "The annual challenge has always been about promoting fun and fitness and the 2017 edition was another excellent and successful event. Congratulations to our winners team Rad Squat on their well-deserved win - we hope they enjoy their brand new GLC 250 Coupé experience. We would also like to thank the Dubai Sports Council for their support to make this year’s event one of our best yet."

The Mercedes-Benz GLC 250 Coupé combines the spirit of a coupé with the power of an SUV for a uniquely unbeatable ride. With DYNAMIC SELECT and 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive with 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission, it is among the sportiest of the Mercedes- Benz SUVs.

The interior is an interpretation of modern luxury. Distinctive stylistic elements of the GLC Coupé are the dashboard and the centre console with its flowing lines and a large, one-piece console panel which makes an elegant sweep below the semi-integrated media display from the centre air vents to the armrest. These clear lines give a feeling of spaciousness while conveying a puristic modernity.

The striking features of the front end are its dominant, steeply raked diamond radiator grille with single louvre and integral star, short overhang and SUV-inspired override guard. The innovative headlamp concept, optionally in LED High Performance technology, sports the now characteristic Mercedes-Benz light signature.

Combining effortless comfort with sport agility, the distinct design and dynamism enriched with high safety and state-of-the-art assistance systems, the GLC Coupé is ready for any challenge that comes its way.
