A drive of less than half an hour from Dubai city centre will bring you to the Dubai Autodrome: a place for fast cars and lots of fun. The Autodrome holds many events throughout the year, showcasing some of the world’s best and fastest cars, putting on displays of speed and style.
However, if you’ve seen the drivers strut their stuff on the track, it’s natural to want to have a go yourself – and you’ll be in luck at the Autodrome.
Try out an Audi R8 or an Audi TT, and see what these cars are made of, as you fly around the track at scorching speeds. If this isn’t enough, why not have a go in a single-seater? You’ll be given a full briefing, then shown how to handle the lightweight racing karts, before being let loose on the 1.2 km track.
If you want something a bit calmer, head to the Kartdrome, where you and your friends or family can go head-to-head in a specially designed circuit, in some impressively designed karts. For any children desperate to get behind the wheel, why not give them a first-drive experience? If they’re between the ages of 12 and 18, they can learn to drive in a safe and controlled environment, with professional drivers.
If you can’t get enough of the action, why not time your visit around the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix? It’s a fun, lively day out for anyone, regardless of whether you know your pit stop from your pole position.
