The petrolheads amongst you looking for a day in the sun, an afternoon at the track and a truckload of desirable motors to gawop at might want to consider The Chase on 19 April at the Dubai Autodrome.
Every few months, the team at Motorsport Solutions – headlined by industry bigwig Mohammad Al Falasi – roll out the red carpet to the public one big hurrah, namely a festival of speed. Next weekend will be no different, as The Chase returns to the Dubai Autodrome.
The usual crème de la cream of the Drift UAE, AutoX and RC drift scene will be out in force to test their mettle, their metal and show their clutches no mercy whatsoever. Those of you keen to throw your newly equipped Nissan GTR or sort-of equipped Tiida might want to check out dubaichase.com for registration: it’s worth a facebook shot or two…
Those of you less enthusiastic about competing can instead wander the Autodrome paddock and savour the automotive fare on display, as crankandpiston’s posse and its various Canons will no doubt be doing. During our last few visits we’ve been up close and personal with airbrushed Beemers, stanced 86s, the occasional Datsun and a couple of McLaren MP4-12Cs (oh, did we also forget to mention…?)
So, should you have a Mosler or a first gen 911 tucked away in the garage, just aim for the guys in the C&P t-shirts. We’ll take it from there.
