As we mentioned in our run down of the event, seemingly nothing could have stopped the 2012 UAE Red Bull Car Park Drift event from happening. Not even the mother of all sand storms, leaving what could only be described as apocolyptic scenes across the country, could dampen the spirits of the crowd, the competitors and organisers alike.

Thankfully there was a crack team of guys on hand to capture the event as it built up through the evening, all the way to the crowning of this year’s winner, defending champion – Ahmed Al Ameri.

For Phil it's all about the car, the quality of content and the story. Having experienced life on both sides of the automotive business, the unbridled urge to set up his own unique motoring website led to being founded in his spare room. The rest as they say is history.
