DRIFT 965

Finally Drifting is becoming an event in Kuwait, thanks to the guys of the Kuwait Quarter Mile Club & Drift 965. There event is held just off the 7th ring road, and it isn’t too far honestly in a flat location which is perfect for tire burning drifting.

The first event I went to was about two weeks ago, and I took my Caddy to test out my drifting skills, which in this case was a definite zero. I tried my luck and probably did a 4/10 but the tire burning the I did was about 10/10. I have always admired drifting as a sport because it is a fine line between control and chaos and some of these guys knew how to walk that fine line. Every week the event keeps improving, they organize better and there are more facilities, and more people show up. Honestly you can tell that these guys love what they are doing and putting a huge effort to make it happen.

There are some pretty good drivers out there and I think these guys are trying to give people a chance at drifting, and slowly keep on improving it. There are a few professionals there, and some guys compete regionally, but I think there are a lot more ameatures learning (like myself) which is pretty good, giving people an oppurtunity to learn and have a lot of fun. I managed to get a few good drifts in but my skills arent at the level that it is in my head (Insert Fast & Furious Tokyo Drift Music). But still it was a lot of fun and you have any interest in drifting or motorsports you should check them out on Saturday from 1-5, it might change to night drift within the coming month, and that will be interesting to see.
