Wallan will provide an opportunity for first place winner to represent Hyundai Group and drive their equipped racing motor for a whole season in all Drift events, under the name of “Hyundai Racing” team and at the expense of Wallan.
It is worth mentioning that Hyundai Drift Academy is of particular importance since it mainly aims to promote awareness of the significance of youth compliance with safety laws and regulations, and the necessity of practicing such hobbies in specialized places, as the KSA suffers from rising traffic accidents and huge social and economic losses due to some negative behaviors by young people, who need guidance and training skills to build a generation of heroes representing Saudi Arabia in regional and international forums.
