the driving experience was absolutely excellent and such a surreal experience that is hard to find anywhere else at a reasonable price point. The adrenaline from hearing and feeling the vibrations of the car puts the biggest smile on your face.

Super activated take your driver's license otherwise not the right to activity. If you come from dubai do a pcr test of -48h. 30€ the pcr test in dubai for a delay of 12 to 24 hours so plan it in advance. Tour equipment is provided even in times of covid. To make a strong impression. 40 min of theory the rest is circuit. A video of your best lap is possible for purchase for 50€ but you have to tell them otherwise they don't offer it.

It was great and will be back on the next trip. Unfortunately, the route description was not so good and without asking, we would never have found it. Included in the price was a video about one lap. But this video was not inclusive. It cost about 50 euros extra. Still a great experience
