RedBull Car Park Drift 2012 finals preparations

Back in 2011, RedBull has organized a couple of Car Park Drifting events in Jordan, with some of our local drifters qualifying to compete for the title of the Middle East's Drift King.


Ahmad Dahham have qualified last year, and competed at the finals in Lebanon but unfortunately, Jordan didn't take it. This year, a local drifter Mohammad Al Kukhun has qualified to the finals, but this time, The finals are held in the lowest point on earth; Dead Sea, Jordan.


With winners from all over the Middle East, shipping their cars to Jordan. Working hard on having their cars stronger and with better setups for the finals. The time has finally come for the best of the best to meet in one space. drifting for the title of Drift King.


One of Jordan's well known drifter, Ra'fat Haroun, will be competing with his heavily modified and redesigned BMW E36, sponsored by Roya TV, Toyo Tires, and racing under Valvoline's racing team.


2 days before the event, the cars have gathered at Abdoun Mall's parking lot, making a scene and having lots of fans roaming around with their fancy looking cars, making their own scene.

For the first time ever in Amman, the aggressive KTM X-Bow.


The new BMW E92 M3 color, The Frozen Grey.


On Wednesday  the cars have headed to the Dead Sea to get their cars ready. Everyone was putting down their final touches on the cars before they head to take some laps on the drift track, to be fully ready for the big day, The finals.


From the UAE, This beautiful Toyota powered Lexus was a total drift rat. bumps, nicks, and tons of rubber dirt laying everywhere.


A Vaughn Gittin Jr. signed RTR was standing beautifully and had us drooling all over it. Diggin' its Wilwood rear brakes.


Also from Saudi Arabia, Traction_Off team drifting with their E46 M3


And here, is one of the rarest cars that we've ever seen in Jordan. The drifting Legend, the Nissan Silvia.
This car is one of the most famous drifters around the globe, pure Japanese madness. Although it's actually an S13, with an S15 nose. But dang it looks good!

Nicely done Jordan. I didn't expect to see such nice cars there, but judging from those vids, those cars performed! Guess being at the lowest point of Earth must help, right?!

I love going to these car shows. We even participated once with one of our upgraded cars bought from one of those nissan dealers in ny. We replaced the rims and teh paint job.

Drifting is my passion. The only problem is that I don't own a car. If I find a company that offers bad credit car financing that suits my need, I would surely grab that one.

I love the design of the BMW E36 by Haroun. I’m planning to customize my used nissan Xterra and make it look like the car of Haroun. I will recommend this site to my friend who also loves car.

Just look at all those racing cars! I imagine myself driving any of those. I wonder if there are any top bmw car leasing company that can provide a racing car just like that.

Vince Fury said...

I've modified my great neck auto into a race car-like one, I'm a F1 aficionado that's why I've been designing my car in something like how will Schumacher design it.
