At the racetrack there is also a Dubai Camel Racing Club located, which unites camel owners from the UAE and Saudi Arabia. They continue working on improving the treadmill and approaching the unusual sport. In 2002, for example, there was an interesting innovation made and now instead of jockeys robots are used. They are remotely controld by the operator from a jeep moving on a special strip along the racing track. Jeep also performs the function of a "whip", with the help of a horn and screams, drivers help camels to run faster to the finish.
