Race down a National Hot Rod Association-approved drag strip in your choice of a Mercedes-AMG CLS or Mercedes-AMG E63. Experience the power of a 585-horse power twin turbo V8 engine at Yas Marina Circuit and reach high speeds in a safe environment.
What to Expect
Before getting behind the wheel of either a Mercedes-AMG E63 or Mercedes-AMG CLS, receive a technical briefing from the Yas Drag Racing Centre’s chief instructor. Following the safety regulations explanation, take a reaction training session in the reaction simulator room.
Here, you will learn about the “Christmas Tree” lighting signal system and be taught to manage your reaction times. Your instructor will be at the wheel on the first test run, and will brief you on staging, braking zones and the finish line. On the second run, you will be in the driver’s seat!
Your instructor will be in the passenger seat to assess your handling and control of the vehicle. Provided you manage this well, you will be permitted to take the remainder of your runs on your own without the instructor in the car. Your instructor will watch your performance at all times and brief you following each of your runs.
