Come experience an adrenaline rush at Dubai Autodrome!
For many people the thought of piloting a high-performance super car around a race circuit is a distant dream. In the heart of MotorCity, Dubai Autodrome offers a wide range of driving experiences to turn those dreams into reality. Activities include something for all levels of driver ability and even non-drivers who still want to experience the thrills of motorsport.
Choices, Choices, Choices
The hardest part is deciding what to try next in the extensive menu of exciting motorsport experiences. The Welcome Centre at Dubai Autodrome prepares and maintains a fleet of sports and race cars to the highest standards.
Appease your need for speed with a fantastic range of Super Car Experiences. Get to grips with the race track and learn the proper racing lines with the nimble Audi TT Turbocharged Experience. The 2.0L Audi TT 45 TFSI Coupe quattro delivers 230 BHP under the right foot, requires no manual gearbox experience and provides the perfect introduction to circuit driving.
Or how about trying out a vehicle with true racing pedigree? The roll cage, harnesses, brakes, suspension and sequential gearbox of the Renault Clio Cup Race Car is built to race specification, just as it is outfitted for the NGK UAE Touring Car Championship.
What more horsepower? The next step is the nimble Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport with 385 BHP and acceleration that gets you to 100kph in just four seconds.
A bigger beast awaits. Drive a thoroughbred McLaren MP4-12C racing machine with a massive 625 horses under the hood. This V8 twin turbo monster has been specially race prepped by Dragon Racing, a team with a long history of winning cars.
If there was ever a car made to be unleashed on the track, then the Ferrari 458 Challenge is it. With incredible speed and unsurpassed driving enjoyment, the prancing stallion from Italy combines raw power with razor sharp handling—an experience to be cherished for a lifetime.
After you’ve sampled the Super Car range, lose the tin top and jump into an open-wheel single-seater Formula DXB—the ultimate race car introduction to wings and slick tires. Our specially prepared race cars are ultra-lightweight with incredible acceleration and sharp handling, allowing you to corner at high speed and feel every part of the circuit.
Or maybe you’d rather go around the track sideways instead? Try one of our drift experiences and slide your way across the tarmac like a pro. Start with Easy Drift to get to grips with the concept in a VW Scirocco with specially modified wheels. Then move up to Prodrift Academy to unleash your full potential in a Nissan 370Z on track, in a safe and controlled environment.
And finally, there are those who are just learning to drive and those who don’t want to drive but still want to experience the thrills of motorsport. If this sounds familar then Dubai Autodrome has experiences just for you. First Drive is specifically designed to teach young drivers (12-18 years old) proper driving techniques on circuit; no license is required to get started!
Strap yourself into the passenger seat in one of our Super Cars and sit back and enjoy the ride while one our race instructors launches you around the track at high speed! Passenger Rides Hot Laps are perfect for those who want to enjoy the excitement of circuit driving without having to get behind the wheel.
