Proper car meets are few and far between in the UAE, but thankfully the team from Motoring Middle East (Motoringme.com) have taken the bull by the horns and started to pull together a car park meet, chock full of UAE based goodies. Over the past couple of months the meets have gone from strength to strength and all being well, it will continue. Keeping the soul of what got it all off the ground will be the hardest part of the organisers job, yet we are more than confident the chaps will manage it.
Sadly we had missed the last couple of meets with other commitments and pressures, however thanks to prolific shooter and all round car guy, Justus Nyman, we can bring you some of the colour from the meet held this past weekend at Festival City in Dubai.
One of the obvious oddities for Middle Eastern car shows is the variety of cars that rock up. From old school, to new school, to Super Cars, all in one place.
Not to mention legendary Japanese Super Cars…
and classic sports cars, such as Noel Ebdon’s long term Ferrari 348 project.
We will need to catch up with the team at MME to understand whether they will be running any more meets in the coming months, as with summer knocking on the door (40+ already during the day), the ability to survive in the summer sun without everyone sweating to nothing will be a tough one.
