The Motorsports calendar is also a tight one in January, with Time Attack, Dubai 24H and a host of other events taking place one after the other. This meant that the 4th Round of Evolve Fun Speed Run, would commence on the 2nd of February, almost four weeks after the initially planned date.
In the FWD category we witnessed the GTI Clubsport’s dominance yet again, as top-honors for both FWD-stock and FWD-modified were taken by Anwar and Mahmoud (from the Siksek duo) respectively.
First place in the AWD-stock category was clinched by Wael Mustafa who was behind the wheel of a white 911 Turbo. Unsurprisingly, he was also the second quickest around the layout on the day.
‘Gandalf’, or otherwise known as ‘White Noise’ in the Evolve circle took home the AWD-modified category top honors yet again. It seems that the Subie owners are giving up, as the sea of blue just keeps getting smaller with every round.
We now come to the RWD-category, where it was quite literally ‘Bimmerfest’, as Ibrahim lifted the stock trophy in his E93 M3, while Fadi clinched the modified trophy in his 135i. A repeat of last rounds result.
Last but not the least, we have the race class and there are no surprises here as Raad grabbed first place and the fastest time while steering the Silvercar.
Speaking of race-class, there were two very interesting entries in the category – Ghanems LS2 swapped E36 3-series (which is almost the perfect sleeper I have across) and Samers RB-26 powered drift-spec Silvia. Both cars were quite a treat to the eye on track. But unfortunately Samer’s heavy foot caused the Silvia to break down and splatter oil over the track. Not quite the end one would expect to the last ever Fun Speed Run. The participants however, still managed to get in four runs out of the anticipated five.
