For the second year in a row, the UAE is to participate in the Red Bull Car Park Drift.
The event comes back this year with spectacular drift shows all over the region. Qualifiers have already set off in April in Kuwait and are scheduled to land in most Middle Eastern countries before the grand finale in Beirut on July 22.
The Emirati capital, Abu Dhabi, will host the qualifying session this year, following a successful round in Ajman in 2010. The session will take place at 6:00 PM on Friday May 20 at the parking lot of Abu Dhabi Corniche. 25 drivers were selected out of 60 candidates who presented themselves.
Last year’s champion and the UAE representative at the 2010 finals Abdullah Habib Mohamed will be among the participants who will demonstrate their skills. The new winner will then be chosen to represent the UAE at the Red Bull Car Park Drift 2011 finale.
Commenting on Chevrolet’s sponsorship of the Red Bull Car Park Drift 2011, Luay Alshurafa, Regional Brand Manager for Chevrolet at General Motors Middle East Operations said, “Our sponsorship of the Red Bull Car Park Drift reaches directly to our customers and car enthusiasts.
