GulfRun7 Day 2

GulfRun 7 Day 2

The group picture of cars and drivers..

As usual.. I headed for the Bahrain GP tower.. where kings, presidents and Stigs

Unfortunately, some of the cars were missing..  

The drivers.. 




Briefing started after the break for the timing session..

GT3 RS cooling off after few hot laps..

What a shadow..

Safety first..

SLS Abused.. 

And timing was over..

Now is the time for some drag racing.. for those who can't get a good time lap. they can still do a good time in a straight line.

The best exhaust sound by far, The 6.3 engine by AMG that is originally 6.2L !!!!

Damn these GTRs did good..

Lucky me.. I saw the trucks loaded with GR cars.. I bet the customer guy will enjoy.

Gone in 60 seconds list ?


Lexus LFA crashed

This car was crashed in October, but pictures emerged lately.
Wasted carbonfiber components.

So Sad!

Porsche 911 Identity video

Porsche has the most distinctive identity among all car makers. You can tell if the car next to you is a Porsche even if it is from the 60s..

This video explains why..

Another reason to love Porsche..

GulfRun is 7 Years Old

GulfRun is 7 years old.
Great 7 years of making something exceptional for cars enthusiasts.

After the Gathering, which I couldn't attend since I missed my flight in Riyadh.. there was a Car Wash event at Alfalah Car Wash

Then the car show at 360 Mall
Then The Main event in Bahrain.
So I went to Bahrain..

Cars were lapping the inner and outer circuit, Amazing feeling when the pass by the fence and you hear the sound and music they create.

The two orange cars got my attention most of the time, so you'll see them a lot.

The DJ played some of the most amazing remixes ever. Awesome dude!

After taking pictures in the pits, we went to some corners inside the track.
And that's what happen when ride a Vespa wearing dishdasha!

You can see the front of the car digging deep down under heavy breaking for cornering.

My friend MadToro was there giving some tips on photography.

GR branded Bike! 

After a long day of racing and abusing cars.. GR got the track ready for the drivers to have a race at Bahrain International Karting Circuit. Read more about the Karting Here.

And Day1 was over.. Wait for Day 2 coverage soon ;)

Hope you like it.

Porsche GT3 RS 4.0 Located in Bahrain

While in Bahrain, I saw few Porsches. 
One of them was a GT3 RS.. I had to look, then I discovered that it is the limited edition 4.0 RS.
One of the best cars in history.
500 Bhp from a 4.0L normal aspirated boxer engine.

The owner removed all the silver stripes, so the car was completely white.

From the inside, it looks exactly the same as the 3.8.
with few emblems and stitching that shows what it really is. 

It is numbers since it is limited to 600 cars worldwide. YES I am lucky.

This little fin mounted on the front spoiler generates 190 Kilograms added downforce for better handling during heavy track abuse.

If there's one car, ONE CAR I would dream of.. it would be this one. The Porsche GT3 RS 4.0

I am dreaming btw..
