On a more candid note after my post about 2009, somethings that might have been around before 2009, but may have gotten slightly out of hand.
Number 1 : RIM’s breakthru into the Kuwaiti market with their Blackberry’s. Its hard to have a conversation with an owner of these devices without being interrupted by furiously rapid texting or beeps emerging from the phone. Do they realize they can have the same data plan with any smartphone and use any social networking/chatting program to the same effect?

The German racing driver Mirco Schultis has quit the biggest rally in the world in Argentina after accidentally killing a spectator and injuring five others.
Marco Schultis lost control of his car at a bend in the first stage of the race and ploughed into a crowd of fans near the town of Rio Cuarto. "A 28-year-old woman suffered a traumatic brain injury as well as injuries to her stomach and pelvis," a local doctor said. The woman died later in hospital, and five other spectators were seriously injured.
With Gulf Run 5 right around the corner, at Up Till One we have got our hands on an exclusive teaser. The event will begin on the 15th and 16th of January in 360 Mall with a car show. All the cars taking part will be on display and it is open to the public. Exotic, tuned up and stock cars will all be available for everyone to see.
Maybe many of you have heard of rumours surrounding this years event. And this teaser just adds fuel to the fire!
Rumour number 1 : Gulf Run 5 has become a 3 day event this year, a day extra from what was being marketed earlier. Credibility of rumour ? As you can see from the dates in the teaser clip, it seems it has been prolonged by one day. Let’s just wait and see!
Rumour number 2 : Gulf Run 5 will include a drift course this year. Believe it or not, Gulf Run 5 is being rumoured to be giving “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift” a run for their money with this brand new event in their schedule. Credibility of rumour ? Let’s just wait and see…..
There will be only 50 drivers participating in the event due to safety measures, but thanks to the Gulf Run staff, they have made the entrance for spectators easy, and they are more than welcome to the event.
Expect everything from a Honda CRX to a KTM Xbow, and everything in between at this years event. It is being hyped as an event that cannot be missed by anyone, let alone car enthusiasts.
Stay tuned for new news and updates from the Gulf Run as we will try and be the first to break the news.
UPDATE : This video, like the ones before, was made by NegativEffect, they are doing a great job for amateurs just having fun with cars and cameras. Keep up the great work and waiting for your newest video.
I saw this at a blog i have been reading for a while, Eleventh-St, and i think it is the car enthusiasts answer to microsoft’s flight simulator. Its worth £120,000 and will use either three 42 inch screens or stereo projectors. Among other things, it will recreate the g-forces felt in a real f1 car as accurately as possible. It is being marketed as not being a video game, i beg to differ. Maybe our friends at Gulfrun can make it part of their event for the future. Thanks Eleventh-St.
G-FORCE auto worx have their new interactive website up and running now. Its very professionally done and lives up to the standard they have set in their garage. Check out their website here. You can find videos, photo’s, and services offered among other things. They are located in the Kuwait Free Trade Zone, Shuwaikh plot A52.
As Richard Hammond explains in this article here, usually the questions he gets from people are about which is the best car he has ever driven. But here, Hammond talks about the scariest Top Gear moment which was during their episode in Alabama on their American Road Trip. Where as you can see from the pictures, they put slogans such as “Man love rules ok, Hillary for president, Country and Western is rubbish and Nascar sucks” on their vehicles and drove through a hick town full of angry rednecks. Of course, some of it was caught on camera for the episode but he continues to talk about the rest of the ordeal.
You can check out the video below.
Keeping with the spirit of GulfRun and Brakebanzeen, as well as an earlier post by N about the badass fins, i just wanted to add this Top Gear episode as number 3 on the list of reasons why Fins are bad-asses. Its another of those episodes for some reason alot of people didnt see. Mika Hakkinen uses the award-winning engine to teach James May how to drive like a man, among other cars. Check it out.
Local Information of the Day : Buzberry have created an application for their blog/twitter that has been submitted to the iTunes Apps store and pending approval. Good job guys and keep up the good work.
With GulfRun coming soon around the corner and most car lovers in the track mood, i went back into the archives of top gear to find this video. Hope you enjoy it
This video is for all you Radical lovers, Top Gear lovers and car lovers out there. Its a plane vs the Radical SR3, you wil be able to see the Radical SR4 at GulfRun for sure and maybe even the bigger, more powerful models. To see a video of the Radical at a past GulfRun event vs a Lotus click here.
I just got this video, it’s a cool parody/remake of the Gulf Run 5 trailer. Its pretty funny, check it out.
I think these girls just wanted to have some fun as it states they were not really trying to poke fun as much as just make a parody. Good job and effort and we are waiting to see parodies of each of the GulfRun videos that are to come. Thanks for the laughs.
Our GulfRun friends are back with their brand new trailer/prelude for the 2010 track meet in Bahrain. Done again by negativeffect. Check it out below. You can visit them at their interactive website www.thegulfrun.com , or directly at their blog at www.blog.thegulfrun.com
