GulfRun CarShow This Weekend – Can’t Miss It!

GRCarShow8

Things have just started up again with GulfRun, everthing going into full swing, drivers getting ready for this exciting event. Honestly I have seen the list of machines participating this year and I’m a bit freaked out, some of these guys went all out working on their machines all year long. These high performance machines have high numbers as well and they have been testing it out on the track. A large number of Nissan GTRs & Porsche GT3RSs have joined, and they do look like they mean business. All I did from last year was change my engine oil and I just changed my tires two days ago, so I’m at the same level that I was last year.

The Car Wash is at Al Falah Car Wash At Al Soor Street TODAY! From 6pm Until about 10pm, and the Car Show is on Friday & Saturday this weekend from 10 am until 10 pm every day, and it looks like its going to be a lot of fun. The Car Wash is always ridiculous to tell you the truth, everyone revved up to fly to 360 Mall, you have machines ranging from 300 Horsepower all the way to 1800 Horsepower, they will want to speed but lets see what happens, speeding with a police escort it always fun.

Ford F-150 SVT Raptor

I am an avid chevy fan but it seems they have fallen off for the past year or so and Ford has held on strongly. I’m not a fan of Ford products, usually they are too much plastic or feels like they will fall apart but for once they have made an extremely appealing product. The Blue Oval has been talking about the SVT Raptor for over a year now, an off-road extreme straight from the manufacturer and it is as good as it looks.

Starting at around $42,000 the 6.2-liter V8 for the Raptor has been officially rated at 411 hp at 5,500 rpm and 434 pound-feet at 4,500 rpm. It has a lot of components for off-road use and can pretty much handle anything you throw at it. Hopefully more car companies will take on Ford’s cue and create for amazing specialized vehicles, as it seems they already have a lot of orders for this expensive truck.

Gumball 3000 Drivers Getting Caught!

Looks like these guys are speeding and getting caught at every corner. Some of these guys were doing 180+ mph (290+ kph) and were chased down by the police, all they need to do is radio ahead and get a road block set up. Even the Bugatti was loaded up into a trailer, and cops in the US don’t joke around, at these speeds it straight to jail and don’t think you would come out any time before standing in front of a judge.

I got this from an anonymous email, a really anonymous email but I thought I would post it up. It seems that Mohammed Al Thani of Sharjah will be participating in this year’s Gumball, that I am not surprised about since he is a car fanatic of sorts. But I’m surprised he is participating in a Rolls Royce Drop Head, you have to cover 3000 miles in a certain amount of time and avoid police throughout that period, why would you do it in Rolls Royce not one of the many fast cars he owns.
