Sand drags are big news in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and becoming more relevant across the region as a whole. With crowds more often than not into the tens of thousands and support for drivers and teams, at levels not seen anywhere else in Motorsport, it is seemingly big business.

As an example, around 40,000 people made the trip to soak in one of the recent events at Al Maneyeh, which is 300 kms away from the Saudi capital Riyadh. Exactly – BIG numbers! To put that into perspective, it’s not far off what Yas Marina gets along for the F1 weekend.

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 crankandpiston.com being founded in his spare room. The rest as they say is history.
