Experience the thrill behind the wheel of a supercar

What better way to let off steam after a hard day at work than jumping in a 570bhp Ferrari GT or a 625bhp McLaren Sprint? At Dubai Autodrome, you can book yourself a drive around the track in one of the many powerful supercars available. You can also learn to drift in a safe and controlled environment with a driving expert, or take a half day driving course in an Audi R8 V10. If that’s not for you, then the Hot Lap Experience allows you to experience the thrill of speeding around the track in a supercar from the passenger seat, with a professional driver taking the wheel. So pick an evening this summer to get your adrenaline pumping at Dubai Autodrome!
