Can you please tell us a bit about what attracted you to the BE club? Why did you decide to join this club?
Ans: It all Started when I saw a post about the black edition Group on a clip that was posted on the social media (Instagram) whereas I recall the clip was of a Black Nissan Patrol that was on the open drift circuit which caught my attention. Right after that I have been closely monitoring the Group’s page for almost more than 30 days where I screened all the pictures and the individuals mentioned in each post to understand the vibe and the culture of the group.
During the process I was also researching about the Founder of the Group (Yuliana Grasman) who I came to know that she is a real Petrol Head and a hard core Motor Sport professional in various segments, and that she is the one and only Female Freestyle drift and wheelie Driver.
Moreover, the setup of the Black Edition Group and the organization of the details that they have on their page and the website attracted me more since it has shown me that they are different from all other car clubs.
The main reason that made me want to join the Group is because of the vision and their goals where are aligned to my goals and it has shown me that the group tend to create win-win situations for all its members and they also have creative ideas.

What do you think about the BE club project to accept vehicles of a colour other than black?
Ans: according to my opinion, I would say that yes, BE should accept cars other than black because not everyone owns black ones, so there for they should be added with colorful cars which will enable the group to grow its talent pool and also because more diverse since the vision of the group is not only related to cars but to create a social melting pot for different people with different skills

Ans: recently I have joined the group and feel much more advanced from various factors and I think this is a great platform for everyone to join with or without black cars, since all the members effectiveness in achieving their goals are highlighted and pushed to be the achieved and more importantly for future the member and the group.
And I would suggest my friends to purchase black vehicles and get enrolled in BE.
