Gulf Run 6 Meetup

23 Dec 2010  2 Comments

We were invited for a GR6 meetup that took place last night. Met a ton of great guys, drivers and organizers.

On display were 3 super cars. The Ford GT, Mercedes SLS and the Ferrari 599. They were a joy to look at and a glimpse of what is to come in Gulf Run 6.

Also on display were a lot of pictures from the previous 5 Gulf Runs that organizers were very proud of, and rightly so.

One of the announcements that was made yesterday was that the Mercedes SLS will be a “special car” appearing in this Gulf Run. And there will be a taxi driver service to take you around the track, but they are being tight-lipped about it and keeping it a surprise.

Before leaving, we were told that we must have a bite to eat. There was a very good selection of burgers right out of the grill, chicken or beef shawerma and make your own fajita. It was delicious.

The 7 Million Batons Deal

22 Dec 2010  4 Comments

According to Mr. Al-Barrak, 7,000,000.000KD (almost 25 million USD) were spent on batons. Thats a lot of batons, didn’t they have any to begin with?

A quick search and I found a sweet 26″ rubber handle steel baton for $23.95 didn’t go through and see how much shipping would cost but that means that they bought a baton for every kuwaiti man, woman and child. leaving 1 million for shipping too.

And also, if you are buying 1,000,000 batons, I’m sure you would get a discount.

I managed to snap this picture in a hazy morning a few days ago over Kuwait City. And you can see both Kuwait Towers (to the left) and Al-Hamra Tower (biggest freaking building in the picture). The size difference is just overwhelming.

Al-Hamra tower has a number of firsts, world’s first sculptured skyscraper, tallest stone covered structure on earth and others. For more info click here

Blue Post – Yabooh

6 Dec 2010  1 Comment

After 12 years of drought, Kuwait are once again the Gulf champions for the 10th time. Everyone hit the streets after mere minutes of the win. Waleed Ali scored a wonderful goal to hand Kuwait the win.

The current Kuwaiti team is a joy to watch. They’ve got character, spirit and determination which previous teams lacked. I hope they maintain this form going into the Asian Cup next month.

Mabrook to all.
