Slide & Glide – Bahrain Drifting Competition

Slide ‘N Glide‘s first drift event will be held at BIC (Bahrain International Circuit) located in Sakhir on Saturday, October 22nd 2011 starting at 9 AM until 5 PM. the event will be divided into 3 sessions:

  • Practice session 1 (Slide ‘N Glide staff will ride with you)
  • Practice session 2 (On your own unless you want someone with you)
  • Competition (No pressure, it’s just for fun!)

I have always been a fan of Drifting, I have watched a lot of Formula D over the years and seen what some of these guys do during GulfRun and its impressive. I for one lack skills to keep the car going sideways but with more Drifting events such as these I can probably get better at it. The best part is people can participate and they can learn from the professional guys from SlideNGlide. The event is taking place in Bahrain International Circuit on the 22nd of October anyone can join, and it would be a lot of fun to watch, and a portion of the proceeds goes to Steps Rehabilitation Center, you can find more details on their website.

The Brudelli Leanster

A new fast and agile toy from Brudelli, a three wheel motorcycle oddity with a nice 654cc 63 bhp KTM engine. It seems you ride this motorcycle just as you do a normal motorcycle, with the two front wheels leaning to max of 45 degrees based on your input. It is claimed that this machine can handle road surfaces ranging from normal tarmac, to gravel, to snowy surface, while giving even novice riders the ability and confidence to perform “controlled power slides” with apparent ease. The starting price for this machine is 21,000 Euros and starting production this October.
