High-speed drift at Emirates Motorplex
Young Emirati and expat motorists who are looking for an adrenaline rush, satisfy their need for speed in full-throttle drifts in a safe and controlled environment at the Emirates Motorplex in Umm Al Quwain. The club was founded as a preventative measure to dangerous stunts carried out by inexperienced youth on local streets and highways. A visit to the motorplex never disappoints with its sounds of screeching tyres and smell of burnt rubber. Each driver gets four minutes to display his skills.
