very classy folk ..very professional team ..
i love how they concluded i am poor and illiterate because i oppose them :)

A little less flaunting money, and a little more learning to write wouldn't hurt these "elite people." Especially when they're advising others to go to school. :rolleyes:

Apparently anyone who can pay 4000$ can participate, regardless of skills? And, apparently, there was already an accident while they were filming a promo video? And, apparently, they don't want to follow the regulations of the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile because they think it's a "Zionist" organization?

Their website is owned by a certain Hussein Fawaz. Anyone know anything about him?

I admit. It's sort of a guilty pleasure to see elitist idiots 3am bi kassro ba3d in their expensive cars.

So how do these guys give away Porches? Do they collect $100,000 in entry fees and viewer ticket income, and then give a $60,000 car away? I'm interested in setting up an event like this, what is the capital required? hehe
