Pirelli, a leading tyre manufacturer in the realms of motorsport in the region, held an event last weekend at the prestigious Dubai Autodrome located in Dubailand.
Those in attendance included prestigious UAE car clubs including Porsche Club UAE and SuperCars Majilis.
During the event, thrill-seekers were given the opportunity to sample the FIA sanctioned 5.39 km motorsport facility.
Alberico Avogadro, General Manager, at Pirelli Middle East commented, ‘It’s been a while since we have been able to host our partner clubs to experience our tyres so we were keen to welcome these drivers back behind the wheel and on to the track as soon as it was safe to do so. Pirelli is known for its pioneering innovation and collaboration with performance cars, so car club members have been requesting the return of our events for some time. It was great to see so many come and enjoy this special evening, while ensuring all safety guidelines were adhered to.”
Twenty guests were invited to the event, and with them, some of the most incredible supercars were unleashed over 20+ corners to demonstrate their performance and agility.
Porsche Club UAE’s president, Karim Al Azhari, who attended the event, said: “This was an extra special day because Pirelli Middle East brought together the Porsche Club UAE and Supercar Majlis to the Dubai Autodrome Circuit after a long industry shutdown. This shows Pirelli’s passion not only to produce the most amazing tyres, but also its passion for the owners of the cars who choose the Pirelli brand as a lifestyle. Pirelli events at the circuits are the most fun way to enjoy the extreme performance of our cars under the safest conditions. There are so many thrilling ways to enjoy the winning combination of Pirelli and performance cars, so I’m excited for many exciting seasons to come.”
During the event, Pirelli took it upon themselves to ensure they followed the current health and safety guidelines by maintaining social distancing with all guests and drivers, making sure face masks were worn at all times, and providing all guests with sanitizers.
