UAE Elite Drifters Compete For King Of Drift Title

On November 27 2014, more than thirty of the UAE’s best drifters will take part in a qualifying round, competing for two spots at the Red Bull Car Park Drift Grand Final. During the competition, drifters are required to negotiate a challenging course dotted with obstacles and qualifying drifters will aim to show their mettle and lay their claim to the coveted ‘King of Drift’ title, in the Grand Finale on 28 November. Sixteen drivers will go head to head with their eyes on the title in a showdown that promises to be an all-round high octane finale. The participants hail from UAE, KSA, Oman, Kuwait, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia and Mauritius.


Faisal Al Zaabi, one of the most prominent local drifters is excited to take part in the qualifier, and says: “I am extremely happy to showcase my skills during the UAE qualifiers that will determine the best to represent the country in the Grand Final. I have worked hard to reach this stage and look forward to represent my country, and I anticipate very tough competition from all the drifter to secure one of the two spots.”


Drfiters will be judged according to a set of six criteria. Forty percent of the mark is allocated to drifting skills, while proximity to the clipping point, and car look and design will each give the driver 15 percent of the mark. Tire smoke, car sound, performance in the ‘Box’, and the tight enclosure the drifters need to do a ‘donut’ in, each contribute 10 percent towards the total score. Uncontrolled spin and driving in the wrong direction will get the drifters penalised.


An international judging panel of some of the most well-known names in drifting will preside over both the UAE Qualifier and the Grand Final. Japanese judges Ken Gushi and Dai Yoshihara as well as Ukrainian Aleksandr Grinchuk, who make up the judging panel, are expecting a very special Grand Final in the presence of top regional drifters, who, according to them, are consistently raising the bar for drifting in the region, year on year.


The Red Bull Car Park Drift Grand Final is held as part of the Dubai Motor Festival 2014 and in partnership with Ford Middle East, Sony Action Cam, Meydan, Pirelli, MBC Action and Al Arabiya 99 FM radio station. Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, the motor festival from 19 November to 6 December is a must attend for all motor enthusiasts
