4×4 drift action: the National Freestyle Drifting Championship returns to Qatar, just three months before the return of the Qatar Mile.
Things are starting to heat up at the Qatar Racing Club. On 29-30 November, the Qatar Mile – a drag event designed to keep racing off the streets – returns to the Al Khor Air Strip to find the fastest street legal vehicle in the region. Last time out, Khalid Al Balooshi’s Porsche 911 Al Anabi (a modified GT3) posted a 347.43kph fastest speed to pip Nasser Abdulla Al Thani’s Lamborghini Gallardo by 4.94kph.
But the Qatar Racing Club clearly felt three months was too long to wait for racing action. Indeed, in an effort to appease the sun-blistered petrolhead Middle East community, the National Freestyle Drifting Championship returned to the (very hot) tarmac to show their skills. Doing donuts. In 4x4s.
Yes. These guys are properly talented and/or mental.
