GulfRun – 360 Car Show


GulfRun @ 360 Mall was one the best car shows that I have seen in Kuwait yet. The number of assembled cars was fantastic, a number of interesting machines in the show, my favorite being the Porsche 995 Gemballa, that is a true racer, a monster of a machine. I like it was separated, I was thrown on the German side next to my twin sitting next to my M6, looks like its going to be an interesting race this year with such a variety of machines.

The machines I worry about the most are those Mitusbishi Evolutions, they are machines to be feared. The way they look has no indication of what can be under the body, some can be monsters at 600+ bhp and others can handle like go carts. Then there is that Nissan GTR which looks really good in red, I’m curious what the Mercedes SLR is going to be doing on the track against all these machines, then there is the other 20 cars which weren’t at the car show since they were getting worked on.

The booths were filled with some sponsors, the most active being Wataniya Airways with their airline staff handing out the Diwaniya Membership program, then Wataniya Telecom, Huperoptic had an interesting stand with all the types of tint, then there was Dent Xpress who were catering to all their customers. I was at the GulfRun booth taking some t-shirts for keeps for later, and I go my hands on the hoodie that I wanted. I talked to so many people over those two days I lost my voice the next day. I can’t wait until 360 Mall opens all it’s shops, it is taking some time, I’m assuming that they will all be open by this summer at least. Thanks to (Bassem @ Wataniya Telecom for the photo)

    Shortly after all the cars left the event at 360 Mall i was cruising on Coop street between Rumaithiya and Salwa when i was almost sideswiped by the Silver Porsche GT2 from Gulf Run… i was doing 160-180km/h or so and he was weaving in and out of traffic before he got to me and passed me like i was doing 10km/h. Now i dont mind but i couldnt help but think that its probably not a nice thing to do with all those sponsor stickers on his car. Im pretty sure the sponsors wouldnt like it and im sure you agree that its not a respectable thing to do. You guys should make them sign a policy or something stating that they wont drive recklessly, at least not on the streets and at crazy speeds.

    For that matter, i dont think it looked good for Gulf Run either…

    The event at 360Mall was crazy! Great cars, great music, great atmosphere and best of all, i hope your all gonna get owned by that stock black 350Z! And stay away from the Evos.

    BTW i was just reading the list of cars, what is a Westfield 210? Like a supped up Caterham or something?

  9. @ bumo,

    he was racing 2 Hayabusas’ and according to the Hayabusa guys they couldn’t catch up with him….they said his car had slicks tires and no less than 600HP.
