What an amazing experience.

Upon arrival you're asked to get changed into your motorsport clothing attire provided to you. Straight away you feel like a race car driver. You sit down for your briefing which explains the rules and provides you information about the track and the cars.

Now you're ready for your observation lap to familiarize yourself with the track and learn where the braking, accelerating and turning points are. If your heart's not pumping yet, it will be shortly.

After your observation lap, it's time to get strapped into your Formula YAS 3000 (3.0L V6 Cosworth engineered open-wheeled race car). These little beasts reach a top speed of 275km/h down the main straight, an experience you will never forget.

After the thrill of a lifetime, you quickly start thinking about how skilled the Formula One drivers must be considering they reach top speeds of over 300km/h down the same straights while having someone trying to overtake them with DRS or under breaks as they head into the corners. Respect.

Well done Formula YAS 3000 team. You made this young man very happy and I'll definitely be back without question. I've got the bug....

When you stop on a tour from Dubai, your visit is quite short and limited mainly to the hotel and looking down on the marina and a very small section of the track. It would be much more exciting to be there during the race time although the costs at that time would be somewhat prohibitive for most people!

By accident we arrived at the track just when a tour started. Honestly it was worth every dirham and the 90 minutes were well planned. Grand Stand, Pit Lane, Villas, Track, Race Control Center - all what you know from TV but usually don't have access to (unless you know Bernie E.).
