Recently, FGB initiated a road safety campaign, which coincided with the UN Global Road Safety Week, in which school students were invited to experience the GT Junior attraction at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi (FWAD). The aim of the campaign was to educate young children on the rules of the road, the importance of the seat belts and responsible driving. School children from Al Shamkha Primary School and Sas Al Nakhel Primary School visited FWAD to experience the Junior GT ride which is sponsored by FGB.
