Less than two hours into the event, marketing staff Saleem had already taken more than 30 visitors, who took test drives of the Grand Cherokee as part of Al Mana Group’s “Test Drive and Extreme Performance Day” held at the Qatar Racing Club yesterday.

Guests and event participants were treated to drift shows by international champions, drag race for motor clubs, performance test drive and off-road experience.
Food stalls and beverages sponsored by Coca-Cola, as well as the special “kid’s zone” were also available during the event.
Many people queued for the test drives for all range of vehicles around the circuit, including the drag track for drivers who want to test the capabilities and technology of the cars. For the drifting and dragging segment, Ahmed Daham and Nigel Colfer were available to teach amateur and hobbyist drivers drifting techniques and ways to perform during drifting shows using participating brands.

Mustang and Jeep Wrangler owners, Mopar, SRT Challenger, Charger and Grand Cherokee Clubs were also present during the event.
