Track sessions are available from just Dhs80…

Ever wondered if your Mario Kart skills are transferrable to the real world? Will you still be able to top the podium without a sneaky blue shell on the final straight?

You can put it all to the test at the recently reopened Al Ain Raceway, with track sessions starting at a special discounted rate of Dhs80. Double up and get your second session for just Dhs40.

The track is a 1.6km national standard raceway offering challenges for advanced and novice drivers, as well as all those in between.

Start your engines

At Al Ain Raceway you can book yourself for a few spontaneous laps of the track with the ‘arrive and drive’ option.

You’ll just need to get kitted up and in your rental helmet, gloves and race gear and absorb the lessons of the safety briefing, then it’s off to the track for ‘shake and bake time’.

Climb inside one of the karts, wait for the green light and hug that racing line. At the end of the session, each racer gets individual lap time print-outs to see how they compare with their fellow track mates.
