Our Lebanese drifter and rally icon, the one and only Abdo Feghali aka Dado has been featured in the brand new RedBull Failaka Showdown video doing what he does best! This time his drifting action has been filmed and directed by professionals as he races against the free runner Mohammed Al Attar in the Kuwaiti island of Failaka. The video of the Two Red Bull Athletes going head-to-head is perfectly directed, filmed and executed. Believe me, no random videos go on the RedBull Youtube channel with its 3,791,030 subscribers! But the main question remains: Will the trainers outrun the tires?
[Updated] Get ready people, the most amazing event of the year, The RedBull Car Park Drift is happening this Saturday in Lebanon, at the Fouad Chehab Stadium in Jounieh. It’s a huge and pure drifting event in which finalists will be selected with regards to the amount of smoke generated by the car, its noise, its beauty and the length of the drift. Since RedBull is one of the most amazing brands I have ever encountered, they contacted me last week to let me know that I would be riding with the craziest, Guinness World Record holder (check the video below) and most famous Lebanese Rally driver, Abdo Feghali a.k.a. Dado. The tour was gonna take place during the qualifiers on Friday July 5, around the Fouad Chehab stadium in Jounieh. Like this wasn’t enough, RedBull gave me a media pass so I can take the best pictures and videos of the event. A dream that was just too good to be true.
Last Saturday I was partying when a discoball fell out of nowhere on my head. The discoball was 1,6 meters in diameter and fell from a distance of 7,5 meters. It not only broke 2 of my neck’s vertebrae, but also my dream of riding shotgun with Dado. I have a collar around the neck that I am not aloud to remove for the next month a half. So RedBull, I wanna first of all thank you so much for the opportunity you gave me and second of all apologies cause I won’t be able to attend the event 😦 Hope you guys enjoy it!!
[Updated] So you might ask yourself what was the response of RedBull to that incident. The answer: A super unique, custom made DiscoRedBull!! How awesome is that?!
Mad Mike competes in two pro drift spec Mazda cars. All over the globe and every time he is behind the wheel and initiates his high speed drift he still experiences that same rush of adrenaline that keeps him hooked. He recently conquered the Crown Range, New Zealand a road composed of 47 corners, 1076 metres elevation, 10.4km long, one of the most demanding and technical drives of the country. For the first time the mystic road has been closed for only one man, Mike Whiddett. Mike was able to pull sixth gear along the Crown Terrace and winds the Mazda RX7′s 750 horsepowerengine out to its redline hitting a max speed of 240km/h on those slippery and tricky mountain roads. A couple of slow motion cameras, some Go Pros, a helicopter and a big filming crew and BAM the greatest ride of all time has been written in history.
