Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your Abu Dhabi racing experience takes place at Yas Central, where you'll meet your racing coach and receive full race gear, a helmet, and a technical briefing about how to operate the car.

Next, it's time to put yourself in the shoes of a professional race car driver as you're taken to the back pits for another briefing before being strapped into the car, with a 3000cc V6 engine developed specifically for the circuit by high-performance Formula One engineering company Cosworth. You'll feel each bump and sensation of your drive as you follow your instructor, who paces laps around the track.

The car provides razor-sharp responses with its wings and slick tires; make sure to relax behind the wheel, as the tiniest movement creates a change in direction. You'll be in charge of the paddle shifters, which help shift the gearbox up and down. Two onboard video cameras capture your drive so you can re-live the action later (video available to purchase).

During your driving session, your challenge is to improve your technique. Afterward, your instructor provides feedback you can use in any later driving experiences you may have. Friends and family are welcome to watch you on the track.

They take bookings early in the morning, but the weather usually does not allow starting before 11.30am fog in winter time. So they cancel a lot of sessions, with no refund only rebookings. Then the session itself is good, but not great. It's way to short.
