With the abundance of fast sports cars for sale across the UAE, there is an incredibly small amount of places to drive fast in Dubai without breaking the law.
The maximum you can drive on Dubai roads is 120 km/h, and that’s only in a few places. Between Jebal Ali Freezone and the Abu Dhabi border and Dubai/Al-Ain road after Outlet Mall.
But if you really want to let your car go fast, you need to head to a safe and controlled environment.
To drive fast in Dubai, there is one location you can go to unleash your cars true potential; the Dubai Autodrome.
For a small fee, you can drive as fast as you want around the race track spanning 5.39 km. Multiple track layouts are available, and the facility holds open track days every few weeks for drivers to enjoy the track.
During local track days, there will be other drivers out there so be aware of them. You will also need to wear a helmet and balaclava for safety reasons.
Passengers are allowed.
How much does it cost?
Prices for track days at the Dubai Autodrome are as follows;
- AED 630 for the club circuit (4x 20-minute sessions)
- AED 840 for the National and International layout (3 hours with open pit)
- AED 1,000 for the Grand Prix configuration (3 hours with open pit)

Currently, the Dubai Autodrome is running a promotion which you can use to get 15% of your track days. This offer is valid until the end of July 2020.
Track days are also available for Motorcycle enthusiasts.
In case you prefer to drive fast in a straight line, the Dubai Autodrome holds Roll Racing nights and is open to all. You can find more information here.
Note: Do not break the speed limit on public roads; not only is it a fineable offence, it can be dangerous for you and other road users. Dubicars urges all users to stick to the race track if they want to drive fast in Dubai and to abide by all the rules when driving on public roads.
