The Black Edition Club at the event
The club was invited by the UCC to be part of the opening event. And thanks to the growing interest that the club has obtained since its inception, this time their participation was a little broader.
On the one hand, they had about 13 vehicles on display, so they took up considerable space within the show.
Likewise, and as a special activity, the Black Edition Club took the opportunity to officially open the color category. And the opening car was the BMW E36 drift car, a gift from Bilal (Yuliana’s friend) to Afra. The construction of the vehicle was carried out by Bilial who with his own hands built full engine, the car was having incredible air brush with many colors on it which was absolutely suitable for the official opening of the color category at the club.
Afra along with the rest of the group had been working during the summer to make the official opening of the category of colored cars within the club, and the final result could not be better. In addition to the car that Bilial gave to Afra, the drifting champion also received a large sticker with her name and the name of her group. And although the colored car did not win any awards, since there was no category in which it could participate, both Yuliana and the rest of the club members were more than pleased and happy to have carried out the activity successfully.
In Afra’s words: “Thank you for my friend Bilal! I also want to thank two of the most relevant members of the club, Ali Ahmed and Hassan, who worked to get more ideas and more members. Hassan very actively invited many new members with amazing cars, as well as Ali helped me manage the group and get organized with ideas. ”
