GulfRun 6 Loading & Ready

This has been one crazy year with GulfRun 6 and it was a great car show at 360 Mall even with the rain that we got on Saturday. It was a blast and during the rain we went to see a movie so it worked out perfectly, but the great part was people were still checking out the cars in the rain. There are some very crazy machines going to GulfRun 6 this year and the one car that scared the hell out of me was the Corvette ZR1, it is an amazing piece of engineering which literally scares me, I have driven a lot of cars but this one is something else.

This Wednesday was the loading day of GulfRun and this time we met up at Tilal Complex in Shuweikh which didn’t have enough parking for so many cars but it worked out at the end. The amount of cars caused a little havoc but it isn’t too bad for an hour or two before heading out. We left by 6 pm and got to the Agility loading facility in Doha in 20 mins. We were a caravan of about 40+ cars and this was only a partial amount of the cars that were joining us. We got to Doha and loaded up the cars on four trailers in record time, and they were extremely organized, it was fantastic. I can’t wait to get to the track and rip it apart! I’m excited! If people want to visit GulfRun 6 its open to the public just mentioned that you are visiting on the 27th and 28th of January.

Michelin – GulfRun 6 Prep

GulfRun 6 is coming up in a few weeks and I decided to change my tire to the new Michelin PS2 tires since my tires were all eaten up. It was a total 485 KD for all for sport tires, mounted, balanced and installed. Which is about 130 KD per tire, which is about the price of sports tires.

I ran into a problem, my rims are G-Power Silverstone Rims which a special valve to inflate and deflate the tires. That special valve was lost by the dealership so I couldn’t do anything with my tires, so I asked them to hold the tires for me. I called the dealer in Abu Dhabi and called Germany they said it would take about 3-5 days to get it, and time wasn’t a luxury I had. I asked to have them shipped FedEx or DHL next day but they were slow to react, I got a little worried.

Next morning Michelin guys called me and told me the tire guys fabricated some valves to they can inflate and deflate my tires, I was very happily surprised. I drove right over as soon as my meeting was done and had my tires changed and tipped the guys who did the work. They made two valve adapters one to inflate and the other deflate the tires. They did an amazing job and these guys remember me year after year so I make sure to tip them, and they finished all the work on my car in 20 mins which is fantastic. The best tire service in Kuwait is always at Michelin, they even have BFGoodrich which is my favorite truck tire brand.
