Dubai Festival City would play host to the inaugural UAE Drift event which consisted of a mix of urban street designed track which pushed drivers to the absolute limit and at the same time made this one of the most spectacular motorsport events to hit the region this year.

UAE Drift 2010 showcased lots of dramatic driving and with a star studded line-up the anticipation was huge with record turnouts coming out the view this event. From the start it was evident the heat was effecting the both drivers and cars. First Casualty of the weekend was Irish Champion James Deane with a gearbox problems in practice aswell as other engine problems with drivers. From the start it was clear to see there were three guys really on the pace and keen to take home the first UAE Drift title. Remo Niezen, Nigel Colfer and Christy Carpenter.

Merci !

Eurosport put snooker in the last two days of Rally coverage slots so I missed them, really annoyed.

Beautiful photos. Thanks for sharing.

Felicitaciones Muy Lindas Fotos

Stunning photos, not many spectators though in the dessert, more camels than people and that's what makes The Dakar, crowds cheering them on !!!!

Hermosas imágenes. Muchas gracias por compartirlas con los amantes del Dakar
