100 supercars steal the thunder at Expo City Dubai
When it comes to spectacles that enhance leisure or enjoyment, the UAE is streets ahead of other cities. No wonder people from all over the world descend on this fascinating country, which offers a cracker of an entertainment for all. Whether it is a rock concert, a Formula One event or even adventure in the mountains, cities like Dubai or Abu Dhabi have it all. Even Sharjah has some lovely go-to sites, such as Al Majaz Waterfront and Mleiha. Ras Al Khaimah has the world’s longest zipline, which offers a mindblowing experience of soaring above spectacular mountain terrain.
Now, sports car lovers had a whale of a time at Gumball 3000, the world-famous sportscar rally, in the attractive Expo City Dubai on Friday with a pit stop at Al Wasl Plaza.
A hundred supercars, helmed by celebrity drivers, including Lamborghinis, Ferraris and a Bugatti Divo set off from Burj Park on 13 November. The convoy traversed dramatic sea and desertscapes across the UAE and Oman, before purring through Al Wasl Avenue and arriving at the magnificent Al Wasl Plaza. An electrifying projection show took drivers and spectators alike by storm.
The evening’s highlights included “meet and greet”with drivers including British YouTuber Yung Filly, Moroccan-American rapper French Montana, and Hanan Mazouzi Sobati, founder of the Arabian Gazelles, the first all-woman supercar owner's club in Dubai.
Sobati piloted an Alfa Romeo Stelvio for The Purple Team, which included nine drivers from across the UAE and Oman. The epic and eclectic adventure will conclude at Yas Marina Circuit on Sunday where they will join in the celebrations for the finale of the Formula 1 season.
