Red Bull blows a huge surprise for everyone attending Red Bull Car Park Drift Finals 2016 in Oman by unveiling the new athelte joining forces to be the face of Red Bull in the middle east, he is Ahmad Daham!

Ahmad Daham is the world guinness record holder along with James Deane for the longest twin drift in the world, also a two times Red Bull Car Park Drift winner for 2014&2015.

During the qualifying round in Dubai this year Ahmad faced a problem by not getting his car on time to participate but there was more for him than defending his title as King of Drift and maybe win the title for a 3rd year in a row making him the undisputed champion of the middle east.
