DUBAI AUTODROME NOW OPEN WITH NEW COVID-SAFE ACTIVITIES

Dubai, UAE, 12 June 2020:  As business operations gradually resume across the UAE, industry leaders Dubai Autodrome and Dubai Kartdrome have made the most of the lockdown period to develop new activities for the public, designed for maximum enjoyment and safety.

In accordance to the latest government health and safety measures, officials at both venues have been busy designing enhanced customer journeys for the new motorsport activities, which include: online-only booking, customer flow-paths that ensure guests do not cross paths during the activity journey, signage and floor markings to maintain social distance, disposable gloves and balaclavas, hand sanitiser stations, temperature check stations, helmets that have been sterilized using medical-grade sanitising equipment (the same as used in UAE hospitals) and race suits that are continuously laundry-sanitised.

The cleaned and disinfected helmets and race suits are wrapped in plastic exclusively for each guest, ensuring that they are receiving fresh race gear for their experience.

Dubai Kartdrome led the way by offering special practice sessions for kart owners on the Outdoor Circuit in May, and now this month it has introduced New World Karting, a safe new karting activity for all guests, ages 13-59 years, to book online in advance.

The Dubai Kartdrome Indoor Circuit is expected to be opening in the coming weeks for ages 7-59 years, which will provide a welcome relief from the Dubai heat, once government directives allow.

The main race circuit is also open to the public, and Dubai Autodrome has created Drive-Thru Car Track Days, a complete contact-free journey for drivers to bring their own cars and drive on the race circuit.  The whole process is designed to be safe and stress-free by allowing drivers to stay in their cars from beginning to end of the track activities.
