Yas Marina Circuit has announced a new partnership with Daimler Middle East & Levant (DMEL) to provide a raft of exciting new, year-round driving experiences featuring its most powerful range of AMG vehicles through the circuit’s regular ‘DriveYAS’ activity days.
Having conquered the Yas Marina Circuit as Formula 1® Grand Prix Champions with the Mercedes AMG Petronas team, the adrenaline rush of the race has been extended to all thrill seekers with the launch of these experiences, offering an unbeatable line-up of dream machines that include the all-new Mercedes-AMG GTS and the Mercedes-AMG E 63 S 4MATIC
The partnership gives both local residents and overseas visitors the chance to experience the performance of these exceptional vehicles at Yas Marina Circuit, whether as passengers or behind the wheel. A menu of single experiences includes adrenaline pumping ‘hot laps’, drag racing, and a total driving experience. With an astonishing 510-horsepower, the 4.0-litre, twin-turbo engine of the Mercedes-AMG GTS promises an exhilarating on-track experience.
Al Tareq Al Ameri, CEO of Yas Marina Circuit, said: “With the introduction of DriveYAS, we can now offer much more track access to visitors throughout the year across our wide range of driving and passenger experiences, of which the Mercedes-AMG is the latest addition.
“Mercedes-AMG GTS is a great product and we have no doubt it will be one of our most popular circuit activities at Yas Marina Circuit, and look forward to a long and successful partnership with Daimler Middle East & Levant.”
“There is almost nothing as exciting as getting behind the wheel of a Mercedes-AMG car – it is a feat of engineering, craftsmanship and power,” added Mark De Haes, President & CEO of Daimler Middle East & Levant.
“Our partnership with Yas Marina Circuit will allow everyone to experience this thrill in an environment that perfectly showcases the power, speed and agility of these exceptional machines.”
