_DSC4054The event sponsored by Ford Middle East saw around 5,000 drifting & motorsport spectators flood the event to watch the best-of-the-best in Kuwait. The top 16 showed remarkable competitive spirit and skillful performances that pleased the spectators.

_DSC3996“I thank god for the win, the competition was tough but I really enjoyed drifting today. The track layout was amazing. This is my second consecutive win in Kuwait. Last year I wasn’t lucky in the regional finals as my car faced some technical problems. This year I’m more prepared and hopefully I will score a good result.” Said the winner Nasser Al Mutairi.

_DSC3975“At Red Bull Car Park Drift we always provide a safe and controlled environment where professionals and amateurs can come and enjoy their drifting skills. Red Bull Car Park Drift is a competition where drivers are judged on drifting style and execution rather than who finishes with the fastest time. The level in Kuwait is getting much better every year and hopefully the winner can compete for the top ranks during the Finals in Dubai. said Abdo Feghali.

_DSC3738Red Bull Car Park Drift has become a highly anticipated yearly event, not only in Kuwait but in most of the Middle Eastern countries participating in the regional competitions. The competition, sponsored by Ford Middle East, took place at the Basel Salem Al Sabah Club at the seventh ring road.

The judging panel consisted of Pascal Hayek (Automotive expert), Saoud Abdulhadi and Sami Haidar (Drift Experts). The evaluation assessed the drift shows presented by the drivers in their modified cars, through the use of hand breaks and exertion of outstanding skills to take on turns in the most dazzling and accurate ways. In addition, judges considered the engines’ roars and the external look of the car, the smoke produced by the friction of the tyres and finally the audience’s excitement and cheers for each performance to make their final decision.
