We love our supercars here in Dubai and the final of the Red Bull Car Park Drift certainly has our wheels in a spin.
This Friday (November 17) the region’s most talented drifters will descend on City Walk, where they will battle it out around a course designed to push them to their limits.
The judging criteria will be based on how well the drivers continuously drift through two sections around boxes and gates, before they take on the infamous pendulum.
Drifters will also have the opportunity to score extra points based on their car design, the amount of tire smoke produced with every drift and their car sound.
And this year there is a new obstacle to wheedle the Ferraris from the Fiestas. The ‘Buzzer Gate’ challenges drivers to successfully hit a hanging buzzer while maintaining a perfect drift.
Official partners for the Red Bull Car Park Drift UAE National Final include renowned Japanese ultra-high performance tire manufacturer, Falken, international shipping service, Shop&Ship and global oil and gas company, Total media Partner, sport360 and Dance FM.
Gates open to the public at 2pm, for a spectacle that could give Vin Diesel a run for his money. Put your foot down and we’ll see you there.
Free. 2pm. Fri 17 Nov. Green Planet Parking area, Dubai City Walk, www.redbull.com/cpd.
