The 2014/5 Drift UAE season kicked off at the Dubai Autodrome last weekend. The new season would herald a new beginning for the Middle East’s premier drift series, with numerous international personnel changes accompanied by a fresh grid of talent. A glorious sunshine basking the beautiful Autodrome Circuit brought out a huge numbers of fans who all lined the parameter fence, ready for a new season of drifting in the Middle East.
Qualifying was a heated affair with last season’s champion Ahmed Al-amri fighting off the advances of Ahmad Daham, Ahmed Tarek and Russian newcomer Sergey Kabargin to claim P1 with a score of 93.5 from the judges, who included 2014 Drift Allstars Champion James Deane. While radio presenter Kris Fade kept the Drift UAE faithful informed and entertained, the venue was primed for some incredible battles to decide a victor.
