Yas Marina Circuit and Chevrolet Middle East Team to Create New Drag Racing Experience
Chevrolet Middle East announced today that it is teaming with Yas Marina Circuit to provide adrenaline junkies with an array of brand new drag racing experiences which feature the sixth-generation Chevy Camaro.
Participants will get to drive the most powerful Chevrolet Camaro SS ever during the circuit’s regular ‘DriveYAS’ activity days, during which visitors come to drive on the iconic F1 Circuit.
Both residents and overseas visitors will have the chance to get behind the wheel or ride shotgun with a Yas Marina Circuit drag racing instructor in the 455-horsepower V8 Camaro SS, which will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph on the Circuit’s custom-built drag racing strip.

Abdallah Madhoun, the Regional Sales & Marketing Manager for Chevrolet Middle East, added, “Chevrolet and performance have always been synonymous, with some of the most iconic sports cars to be ever built in the history carrying the Chevrolet bow-tie.
“In 2017, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic Chevrolet Camaro, where in the Middle East it has become an instant hit with automotive enthusiasts. As part of our celebration, we are thrilled to partner with Yas Marina Circuit to provide performance enthusiasts a unique opportunity to shed light on the Camaro’s performance and advanced vehicle technologies in the Camaro Drag Racing Experience.”
