Some of our members decided to wake up at 4:30 am and make a drive towards Jebel Hafeet.. For those who are surprised about why would anybody drag themselves out of bed at 3 am to go for a drive to Jebel Hafeet, they really know what they are missing. This road is built for cars like the 86, BRZ or S2000. For more evidence, check out this video footage from Sid’s 86.
Thanks for everybody who managed to make it!! Once again its nice to see that out club is growing bigger… The 86s are starting to transform slowly into proper tuner cars and we got lucky today to meet up with Mansoor, the first BRZ owner to attend our meets! Stay tuned as we figure out some future events and drives! Finally, thanks for EMSF and our 86’er Zuhair for organizing the spot for us!
This is probably one of those handful of heavily altered 86/BRZs in the UAE. Loaded with the most common and aftermarket extras available from Perrin, GrimmSpeed and Cusco; we have no exact idea about what upgrades are used or how much extra performance is squeezed out of it.
Also known as the AE85 in some places, which basically shares the same Corolla GTS platform without the glory of a 4AGE, a 5 speed manual, limited slip differential or rear disc brakes, as far as I recall, so don’t take it as an accurate fact.
It was awesome seeing all those cars laying around. We went there to show everybody that we are here and we are growing!! I barely managed to snap photos this time but this is what was salvaged from the day. Some shots of our convoy along with some of the funky stuff we found at MME..
Thank you for those who managed to make it to the event; especially those who drove all the way from AD.. From now on we will working on making life easier for our Abu Dhabi members. Also, it was nice to meet some of the new faces and members there!
For our guests and visitors, in case you missed all our previous events then prepare yourselves for our April schedule!
