30 November, JEDDAH: For the first time ever the Red Bull Car Park Drift World Final will be held in Saudi Arabia with the hosting body, Saudi Motorsport Company and their Jeddah Corniche Circuit, promising the “best ever” season-ending event as tickets for the Final go on sale.
On 8 December 2022, the Red Sea city will host 21 drifters from 18 different countries who will battle it out to be named the Red Bull Car Park Drift King of Drift for 2022. Expert power control, pure pace, and the most delicate of touches will be the difference between victory and defeat for the competitors in the spectacle Thursday evening show, set to deliver packed grandstands and a festive atmosphere.
With tickets available for all fans of high octane, Saudi Motorsport Company (SMC) CEO, Martin Whitaker, says he is counting down the days to one of Jeddah’s biggest automotive moments, “I believe the Jeddah Corniche Circuit is one of the best ever venues in the long and impressive history of the Red Bull Car Park Drift and we expect an event which is more than equal to this stunning location.”
He added, “This is such a special event for the region, and we are so proud to be able to bring it to Jeddah and give drifting fans the chance to experience world-class competition. Of course, with three Saudi Arabian drivers competing in the final we expect the crowd to be more enthusiastic than ever and how special it would be to see a local driver crowned the King of Drift.”
For Saudi motorsport fans, since Jeddah will be hosting the World Final, the event will welcome three competitors from the Kingdom. Those drivers will be confirmed at a qualifying event on 3 December.
They will go head-to-head with drifters who qualified in competitions from Jamaica to Mauritius, Sri Lanka to Pakistan, Kenya to South Africa, while the series also travelled through Poland, Estonia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, not to mention Qatar, Oman, UAE, Bahrain, Jordan and Lebanon.
In addition, off-track activations will bring a festive feel to the city with special entertainment lined up for attendees; the event is brought to Saudi Arabia in partnership with Saudi Motorsport Company, Jeddah Corniche Circuit, Red Bull Mobile, Nissan, Kwai, Dunlop, Saudi Sport Channel, Blink Experience, and Arab GT.
