Noor Daoud was the only woman to take to the track in Egypt's Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, where the Palestinian racer impressed the crowds with her "drift" driving skills. Daoud has mastered the art of drift deliberately oversteering to make the rear wheels skid and travelled to Sharm el-Sheikh for a regional competition.Daoud had to abandon the second round of the competition due to engine failure, but nonetheless picked up a trophy for her participation as the sole woman.She wishes other Arab women would take part in professional competitions. There are however more women racing cars in the region, including four other Palestinians who featured alongside Daoud in a "Speed Sisters" documentary.Drifting is more than just sport and spectacle for Daoud.
