A young man teams up with his kid brother to send a remote-controlled hot rod tearing through the gravel outside their home in Doha. Passionate about cars, Qataris are ardent drivers, averaging tens of thousands of miles a year. That's made easier with gasoline running about 50 cents a gallon (four liters). A further nicety: no self-service. As a motorist sits behind the wheel in this torrid country, attendants pump gas, sometimes while the engine, and air conditioner, keep running.
