Supercars are a common sight in Dubai – even the police force has a Bugatti Veyron and a Lamborghini Aventador, among other cars, in its fleet – and motoring fans will be pleased to learn that you can do more than snap a selfie next to these gleaming vehicles. At Dubai Autodrome (+971 4 806 2220) you can slip behind the wheel of a Ferrari or McLaren, among other supercars. Track experiences combine classroom and behind-the-wheel training from a professional racing driver, before you’re let loose to do a few laps.
The complex is also home to Dubai Kartdrome, which has an indoor and outdoor circuit suitable for those aged seven and above. The 1.2-kilometre-long outdoor circuit is designed for more confident drivers who can definitely test their mettle on its challenging 17 corners, tunnel and bridge and take on the fierce competition. Simply arrive and drive.
