Take on the F1 simulator challenge in Abu Dhabi

Get in pole position for top prizes at The Village, Le Méridien Abu Dhabi

Petrolheads can enjoy a high-octane taste of life on the track – by getting in the driving seat for a huge F1 simulator challenge at The Village, Le Méridien Abu Dhabi.

If you fancy yourself as a budding Lewis Hamilton or Sebastian Vettel, get geared up for a day of adrenaline-charged fun that’s virtually impossible to beat.

The adrenaline-pumping challenge has been organised by the hotel team in conjunction with the SPG (Starwood Preferred Guest) loyalty programme ahead of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The competition is free to enter and the speedster who records the fastest time will win the ultimate F1 experience, a two-night stay for two at Aloft Abu Dhabi during race weekend from November 25 to 27, access for both people to the ultra glamourous Amber Lounge party on Sunday, November 26 and attendance with a guest to a private SPG event in the capital for a meet and greet with a Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport driver, who the lucky victor will have a chance to race on a timed lap of the racing simulator.

The challenge is open to all SPG loyalty programme members on a first come, first served basis – so if you are not already signed up now is the time to register.

Even if you aren’t first past the finishing line, there are a raft of other great prizes if you end up further down the grid, including a chance to win a pair of gloves signed by one of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport drivers, a pair of their gloves and a voucher for 20,000 Starpoints.

While you are in the thick of the action, you can refuel with beverage buckets available from Dhs100 and food combos at Dhs90 and enjoy music from The Once Duo band.

The F1 simulator will be parked up at The Village from November 16 to 23 so if you think you’ve got the formula for success why not strap yourself in for the racing challenge?

Free. Thu, Nov 16-Fri Nov 17, 6pm-1am; Sat, Nov 18-Wed, Nov 22 6pm-midnight; Thu, Nov 23 6pm-1am. The Village, Le Méridien Abu Dhabi, Al Zahiyah (02 644 6666).
