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.

Had a blast. I had driven the Caterham before and had a good time, but wow did this blow my mind. I knew it would be fun, but it really exceeded all expectations. I felt like a superhero. I stalled twice getting out of the pit lane! And the aero lift on my helmet during the straights was crazy! At high speeds it felt like someone was trying to pull my helmet off The staff was great, so great I even gave two of them a ride home lol. With the current construction, gate 7 was a little hard to find, but otherwise the entire experience was perfect.
