With the drift scene getting more exposure and popularity; it might make rear-wheel-drive cars more desirable among drivers as this is a great way to showcase the prowess. Looking at the last decade and how people were putting together RWD machines from the 90s it sure is a wake up call.
With regards to drifting in the region: UAE drift community are working their way from scratch while they are recently short of a huge drifting track and super skilled drivers; it still is an ambitious move from them to take the journey to promote & flourish this sport in the region attracting all kinds of drivers passionate about the sport.
