Cars go head to head in Drag Roll Race at Yas Marina Circuit


You don’t need to be an expert racer to have fun on the drag strip. Why not unleash your wild-side in the safe and controlled environment of our NHRA-accredited track?

Perfect for rookies, dragsters roll from the starting line, and only start getting up speed at the first gate. Then, when the lights go green, racers let loose and go head-to-head down the strip. Using the Circuit’s unique state-of-the-art timing system drivers will be able to monitor their times.

Yas Drag Roll Nights are perfect for testing your acceleration, sharpening your drag skills and having a good time with other drag racing fans in Abu Dhabi. If you don’t have your own car, let our powerful Mercedes AMG E63 or Chevrolet Camaro take you on this eye-popping experience.
