Appease your need for speed with a fantastic range of Super Car Experiences. 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 ProCar Championship.

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—an 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.
Now ready to reach the pinnacle of motorsport? Driving either the F1 Jaguar 2000 or F1 Arrows 2002, gives you an amazing opportunity to fulfill a lifelong dream of a F1 Experience from the drivers seat of a finely engineered racing car.
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. Easy Drift allows you to get to grips with the concept in a VW with specially modified wheels.
Strap yourself into the passenger seat in one of our sports cars, sit back and enjoy the ride while one our race instructors launches you around the track at high speed! Starting at only AED 300, Passenger Rides Hot Laps are perfect for those who want to enjoy the excitement of circuit driving without having to get behind the wheel.
