YAS MARINA CIRCUIT AND CHEVROLET THRILL WITH NEW DRAG RACING EXPERIENCE

Drag Racing driving and passenger experience with the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro


Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi – Yas Marina Circuit and Chevrolet Middle East are now providing adrenaline enthusiasts an array of brand new drag racing experiences at the venue in the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro.

Featuring the most powerful Chevrolet Camaro SS, the experiences are sure to prove very popular with the public during the circuit’s regular ‘DriveYAS’ activity days, and the new partnership extension is testament to the brand’s popularity for visitors coming to drive on the iconic F1® Circuit.

With a 0 – 100km/h time of 4 seconds on the SS (automatic transmission), the all-new Chevrolet Camaro is loaded with performance technology. The Gen Six Camaro provides a faster, more nimble driving experience, enabled by an all-new, lighter architecture and a broader powertrain range. An all-new 3.6L V-6 with an SAE-certified 335 horsepower and the 6.2L V-8, which is SAE-certified at 455 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque (617 Nm) – for the most powerful Camaro SS ever.

Both residents and overseas visitors will now get the chance to get behind the wheel or be a passenger with one of Yas Marina Circuits expert drag racing instructors, where the Camaro will fly down the Circuit’s custom-built drag racing strip. Those taking part will get to smell the smoke of the tires and watch the sparks fly.

Al Tareq Al Ameri, CEO of Yas Marina Circuit, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Chevrolet Middle East. With such a strong brand and equally exciting product, the SS provides the perfect complement to our existing retail product range. Working closely with the team at Chevrolet, we look forward to bringing this new experience to both visitors and residents looking for something fun and exciting to do.”

Abdallah Madhoun – Regional Sales & Marketing Manager, 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.”
