(SOUNDBITE) (English) DRIFTER AND RACE CAR DRIVER, CHELSEA DENOFA, SAYING:"I'm Chelsea Denofa and we are here in Saudi Arabia, we are at the Autoville show and we've been teaching people how to drift the entire time we've been here. Saudi people are amazing, they've learned how to drive manual car and learn how to drift multiple turns at the same time, it has been an exciting time and I can't wait to do some more."

The Saudi Conventions and Exhibitions General Authority organizes the event

(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) SAUDI CITIZEN, MOHAMMED AL-ZEER, SAYING:"Drifting is not new, it has been practiced for a long time. But we used to drift in remote areas with a lack of safety measures and in a random way. But now, thank God, there is this arena that is organized, safe, and offers professional coaches. Now, a person rides with a coach and experiences as well as enjoys drifting, whether he is driving or just riding along."
