Great experience! Driving skills determine the level of driving you will have. Be certain you can prove you have been holding a driver's license for the last 4 years. Video of your best lap available after your driving experience is of high quality but for the price, I wish it was longer than just one lap. Not convinced they sent me my "best lap". Still had an awesome afternoon...A1!

Once the feeling of feeling these G-forces is unimaginable. The Yas Marina Circuit shortcut is sufficient. Unfortunately we didn't get any previous formation laps with another car, so the first laps in the formula car were relatively slow to get to know the track. The race management's reaction to dividing up the drivers with different speeds worked well, but only in the third last lap did they react to allow the faster driver to go ahead. So I only had 2 very fast laps. You have to buy the video of the fastest lap as well. All in all it was a very breathtaking experience. I wasn't there for the last time.

Fantastic and very fun experience for those who love motorsport. The activity is very well organized and takes place with all the support of the team. It is worth buying the video at the end of the activity. The only downside is that there is no food court nearby. Anyway, the experience is worth more.
