Redbull gave local drifting enthusiasts an unforgettable experience with Sri Lanka’s first Red Bull Car Park Drift Clinic recently and it was a first for Sri Lanka with over 35 drivers participating and a master class in drifting conducted by Lebanese champion driver Abdo Feghali.
Despite the challenge of hosting the event for the first time in Sri Lanka in addition to health guidelines and challenges of hosting a public event amidst the backdrop of the pandemic the response was inspiring and a true testament to the popularity of drifting in Sri Lanka and to Red Bull’s commitment towards giving wiiings to local drivers.
The event was a reflection of Sri Lanka’s potential to one day becomes a host country to the World Championship final in the future.
The Red Bull Car Park Drift was an anticipated event on the Red Bull events calendar. The sport attracted a lot of interest not only among racing enthusiasts and drivers but also among spectators.
The inaugural event made it possible for all underground drifters to put their skills to the test, and placed the spotlight on rally champion Abdo Feghali, making him a drifting legend.
Local drifters and racing enthusiasts have more to look forward to next year as Red Bull Sri Lanka is planning to host Red Bull Car Park Drift qualifiers in 2022.
