Camel racing end of march

Anyone know anything at all about camel racing; it seems to be very elusive!

I will be in Oman travelling around between 21-31 March 2013

Thanks a million

Thing is that Camel racing is not really a national thing that people follow. I does take place, but normal people are not aware of it. I do not know a single individual who is interested in Camel races. Only interested people would be the Royal Camels thing and some people who own racing camels. To ordinary people such as myself, we are completely clueless.

I looked for information in the Arabic media, I found the following link which is in Arabic:

http://main.omandaily.om/node/109306

Translated using google translate:

translate.google.com/translate…

Not a very good translation, but does the job.

Relevant information is that the national camel races for season 2012-2013 started on 19th September 2012 in Mudhaibi. The season finale will be on 25-28 March 2013 in Barka.

I hope this helps.
