Ahmad Daham becomes first Arab drifter to participate in Drift Masters European Championship & Goodwood Festival of Speed
  • Daham’s custom Lexus RC F Pro Drift spec car – unveiled by Al-Futtaim Lexus in the UAE in May – makes first appearance in Europe
  • The five-time Middle East drift champion already has over 75 podium wins to his name

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, July 9, 2019:  Ahmad Daham has made history by making his Goodwood Festival of Speed debut this month between 4-7 July in the United Kingdom. The annual event is a hill climb featuring historic motor racing vehicles, as well as F1 machines and other cars and motorbikes. The event has seen between 100,000 to 150,000 motorsport fans attended daily.

His inaugural participation is made extra special by the fact that his custom Lexus RC F Pro Drift spec car – which was unveiled by Al-Futtaim Lexus in the UAE in May – has made its first appearance in Europe.

Ahmad’s participation during the Goodwood Festival of Speed at the famous Hill Climb wowed the audience with the sound of the V8 engine in his Lexus car. He also participated in a friendly competition against Formula D champions clinching second place in the opening round.

Furthermore, the Lexus RC F Drift Car made a tandem drift, for the first time ever, with the famous Kamaz-Master Team Truck driven by four times Dakar Rally champion, Eduard Nikolaev.

Adding to his summer of international participation, making history in the process, the five-time Middle East drift champion is currently taking part in the 2019 edition of the renowned Drift Masters European Championship. Considered the “Champions League of professional drifting”, this year’s competition sees 42 drivers from 18 countries compete over six rounds, hosted in different locations across Europe, battling it out for a coveted top three position.

The 32-year-old Red Bull athlete – who is already a Guinness World Record holder – is creating more history by becoming the very first Arab to participate in Drift Masters. Additionally, the UAE-based Jordanian is also the only participant from outside of Europe to take part in the distinguished event.

The latest round (round three) of the 2019 Drift Masters European Championship took place between 28-29 June in Plock in Poland, where Daham is quickly moving up the ranks.

Round four, which marks the second half of the season, commences 2-3 August at Biķernieku Trase in Riga, Latvia. The Latvia leg will be followed by Round 5 in Ferropolis, Germany (16-17 August), before concluding in Mondello Park, Ireland for Round 6 between 21-22 September. The season finale – known as Ireland’s biggest automotive event – is set to attract over 15,000 fans.

Stay tuned for more events featuring Daham. Commenting on his latest participations, he said: 'A lot of hard work leads up to big events, and it’s such an honour to be representing the Middle East region at these world-renowned competitions. 2019 has brought a lot of good fortune and I look forward to continuing momentum.”
