Take a crazy drift ride through Jordan’s Mars-like landscape of Wadi Rum with goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu and drifter Ahmad Daham.

If ever there was a country that perfectly aligned with stunning backdrops for driving and drifting, it has to be Jordan, and the Mars-like landscape of Wadi Rum in particular. A maze of monolithic rockscapes rises from the desert floor to heights of 1,750m creating a natural backdrop for the video captured during the Red Bull drifting shoot in Jordan recently. #redbullmotorsports#gojordan#drift

Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, the goalkeeper of Bengaluru FC in the India Super League, and also a Red Bull athlete, is the first Indian to play a competitive match for a top-division team in the UEFA Europa League when he represented Norwegian side Stabaek FC in 2016. Gurpreet recently travelled to visit the natural wonders of Jordan including the Dead Sea and Petra. At over 400m (1,312 ft) below sea level, the Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth where you can float without sinking. Petra, known as the ‘rose red city’ is a world wonder, and without a doubt Jordan’s most valuable treasure and greatest tourist attraction. This project was a collaboration between Red Bull and the Jordan Tourism Board.
