Answer: Camel Racing has become an International sport, it is very popular in many countries such as United Arab Emirates, Mongolia, Qatar, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, etc., Camels can maintain a speed of 25mph for over an hour and in a short sprint can achieve a speed of 40mph.

Camel racing, much like Horse racing is a great tourist attraction and gambling/betting is involved.

Camel racing is not very popular considering the fact that camels aren't that fast, It is done in the Desert areas of northern Africa and Saudi Arabia.
