Drift Racing Global Attraction.
Drift racing originated in Japan in the mid ‘90’s and has taken a foothold across the globe, including the Middle East, as a popular sport competing for style, tire smoke, line and angle strategies, speed and showmanship.

Many can equip their favorite rear-wheel drive setup with an LS1 engine, grab a few sponsors and they are off and running.
