Who’s going to Harley-Davidson bike show tomorrow at Marina Crescent? I’m absolutely going because I went last year and it was really fun, there were dozens of hot bikes with different colors and body designs, there were also local and regional bikers that came to show their bikes. Check our last year coverage [link]
Where: Marina Crescent
When: Friday 25th & Saturday 26th from 10:00am to 10:00pm
I truly wish we have our own international (or at least regional) motorshow in Kuwait, yes we had annual one at Kuwait International Fair but it wasn’t as impressive as Dubai or Qatar motorshows and it wasn’t organized for 3 years now, I even overheard that Concours D’Elegance motorshow was cancelled this year, too bad. I received an invitation for a sneak peek tour for an upcoming motorshow at 360 Mall roof parking under the name Auto Moto 13, so that’s why the roof parking was closed for over a week now, I thought they were doing maintenance works. I spoke to the organizers and asked how they came with this idea and why they chose a mall for the motorshow, they said since we don’t have a motorshow in Kuwait anymore and many people love to attend such expo we thought of organizing one and invite all Kuwait auto agencies, and we chose a mall because we know how people love going to malls nowadays plus Kuwait International Fair needs to be revamped to attract visitors.
They do have a point when they said Kuwait International Fair needs to be totally renovated, actually what we really need is a new huge convention center. I saw several auto agencies such as Rolls Royce, McLaren, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Lexus, Jaguar, Infinity, SRT, Toyota, Nissan, KIA, Jeep, Doge, Volvo and others participating . They said there will be some first-time cars showing like Mercedes G63 AMG, Lexus LFA, new Nissan Z350 and others but sadly no concept cars.
They were still working when I arrived but they said the motorshow will kick off tomorrow. I suspect it will be good opportunity for those who are hunting for car offers.
My friend from Dubai sent me this video for Aston Marting celebrating 100 years with a spectacular event. The new Vanquish was lifted to the helipad of the Burj Al Arab hotel. This makes me wonder, does Kuwait Investment Authority still hold shares in Aston Martin?
I kept wondering what’s the use of the lane indicators they fixed since early 2011, I mean I never saw them working and they’re always green even when one of the lanes is actually not moving. I was on 4th Ring Road yesterday and noticed that lane indicators are finally giving drivers some useful directions by indicating that there’s an accident ahead but I guess drivers will need long time till they actually start to follow given directions.
GulfRun motorshow is certainly one of the events that I enjoy in Kuwait every year where people get a chance to see some of the hottest supercars out there that will participate at Bahrain International Circuit race later this month. This is the 8th consecutive year for GulfRun that was started back in 2005 as a weekend getaway for a group of friends passionate about automobile racing then developed into a big scale motorsport event.
They say the displayed supercars worth over 1 Million Dinar, they surely looked fully loaded with tuned-up engines to produce more horse power, there were also many modifications and additions made to the body. Though I noted that there were fewer supercars displayed this year compared to 2012, I didn’t see the Mercedes-Benz SLR, SLS, BMW M3, and Porsche GT but possibly because there’s another shopping expo going on inside the mall at the same time. I wish we had our own Kuwait International Circuit since we have a lot of supercars and race lovers in Kuwait, imagine how this will help them enjoy they favorite sport safely.
