Red Bull’s Beat The Champ

The sound of buzzing engines was what we heard all day long during the event “BEAT THE CHAMP” at BAU Beirut campus organized by the Red Bull team.

800 spectators, 28 participants, and the well-known Red Bull Lebanese Rally champion Abdo Feghali attended this karting on campus event where students had to beat DADO’s best time lap (18”.47).

This event was the biggest ever held at the BAU Beirut campus with most of the students missing their classes to watch the drifting show of Dado that kept them astonished during the whole event.

The concept was to compete against the Red Bull Athlete in kart racing and try to break his record.

DJ Alterra was behind the decks spinning tunes alongside to MC Hassan Khalil who was pumping up the crowd and adding to the atmosphere of this motorsports event.

In 1st place, Wael Hilal was 2 seconds away from the record time ( 20”.31 ). Youssef Hamza in 2nd place was extremely close with 20”.75 followed by Mohammad Ballis with 21”.19.
