The Red Bull Car Park Drift qualifier was pretty cool today and I finally got the chance to drift with Abdo Feghali. I don’t know why people get scared or start yelling during a drift. It was smooth and fun and I wish it took longer.
Tomorrow’s the big final and I am definitely not missing it! Until then, here are few pictures I took today:

I’ve been wanting to do that for years and thanks to Red Bull, I will be drifting with Lebanese Rally driver Abdo Feghali this Friday at the Fouad Chehab Stadium as part of the qualifiers for Saturday’s big event. In fact, the National Final of the Red Bull Car Park Drift will take place on Saturday July 6th also at the Fouad Chehab Stadium in Jounieh between 8 and 10 pm and It’s gonna be awesome!
I will be posting lots of pictures and videos on my [Instagram] so stay tuned!

I was helping my friend park his car in Achrafieh and I suggested he uses one of the Park Meter spots. We purchased a coupon at 9:18am that lasts until 12:18 as you can see below. When we went back to renew it around noon, we were surprised to see that we got a fine.
I called the Park Meter Customer Line to ask about the fine. They answered me that the coupon was probably not showing clearly or put upside down and that I have to wait for the pictures taken by the officer that will be available the next day. I called the next day and as it turns out, the coupon was apparently not showing clearly. I couldn’t confirm if what she was saying was true as I didn’t see the pictures but I told her I still have the coupon (see above) and it is a valid one.
I thought she’d ask me to email it to her or bring the paper to their offices but instead, she told me they can’t do anything about it and I still have to pay the fine. Her argument was that the regulations are clear. Assuming she’s right and I misplaced the coupon, why can’t they cancel the fine if I submit the valid coupon? What sort of logic is that?
