Syrian car enthusiasts took a fast and furious break from a four-year-long violent conflict by skidding their way through a drifting competition in Damascus on Friday. The Drift Competition hasn’t been set since the conflict broke out in Syria four years ago. The event, held by the Tourism Ministry, is aimed at bringing a sense of normalcy back to the Syrian capital.
