Mercedes Benz posted on their website a nice “48 hours in Beirut” article where they went “through the mountains, sea and green between French, Arabic and English, into the night and beyond the day” and learned what Lebanon and Beirut are all about.
Check out this cool feature [Here].
The event took place today at the Charles Helou station and I was there to enjoy it. Bassam Zahalan was crowded winner, while Kifah Hilal and Mohammad Baalkabki finished second and third respectively. I took a lot of pictures and small videos which I will share tomorrow.
Check out the winning run [Here].
The Red Bull Car Park Drift National Final is taking place this Saturday at the Charles Helou Bus Station starting 4pm. The Red Bull CPD is an event I always look forward to and the Charles Helou Bus Station sounds like the perfect location for it. See you all petrol heads there!
PS: I just remembered I never uploaded my ride with Abdo Feghali last year. I will share it later on today.
I doubt that we will ever see trains again in Lebanon. Check out some really cool pictures of Riyak train station [Here].
I am sure no one would be honking at her if she drove properly.
Over 40 Camaros gathered for a ride to support the Lebanese Army yesterday. I spotted some of them on the highway then saw the album they uploaded on their Facebook page. The Camaro Club is one of the biggest clubs in Lebanon, which is quite surprising considering how expensive the car is.
Speaking of Camaros, the only one I’ve driven was a very old one and it used to drift like crazy. I wonder if the new ones are difficult to drive as well.

This is terrible news but Jad Himo, the Lebanese drifter who proudly won the Red Bull Car Park Drift Regional Finals in Dubai last year, was found dead on the Matn highway.
Nothing’s clear now but the person who was with Jad told the authorities Jad parked his car on the highway, went down and shot himself.
Jad was only 24.
I don’t think this was a smart ad by Geely, knowing that the “da3ess” slogans are being used to support the army.
I have no clue what was going on this afternoon, but there was absolutely no traffic between Dbayyeh and Nahr el Kalb. The road is always packed there and I pass by it almost everyday at the same time, yet for some unknown reason the roads were empty today. One of my friends told me that it’s due to some army checkpoint on Charles el Helou but still something was not right.
I posted the above picture on Instagram and everyone was as surprised as me, so if any of you knows what was happening please do tell!
