Dubai, UAE – September 16th2019: Dodge has unleashed a heart-pounding motoring experience in Dubai that will give adrenaline junkies the chance to test out the full power of Dodge vehicles in a safe and controlled environment.
With more than 45 years of muscle-car heritage coursing through its veins, Dodge has a legacy of performance embodied by its famous muscle cars, the Charger and Challenger and the SRT® range.
The ‘Dodge Muscle Experience’ builds on this with three unique experiences featuring the Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack and the Dodge Challenger SRT® Hellcat Widebody.
Thrill seekers who want to taste real power can now choose from two exhilarating drifting experiences, available to book internationally so that both residents and tourists have the chance to enjoy. The ‘Charger Drift Taxi’ is a white-knuckle ride for the whole family where Dodge’s experienced professional drift drivers will take guests on thrilling drift laps around the Dubai Autodrome, including sideways slides and the ‘rollercoaster effect’.
Those who are ready to experience jaw-dropping G-forces can take on the ‘Challenger Drift Experience’, which takes the tempo, tyre screeching and smokiness a notch higher with faster and more aggressive drifting around Dubai’s popular racetrack.
Motoring enthusiasts looking to tame their beast, improve their street cred and get the maximum performance from their Dodge can sign up for the ‘Dodge Master Class’, the first ever American Muscle car drifting and advanced driving school by Dodge in the region. Under the guidance of professional Dodge instructors, participants can learn how to harness the power of their Dodge, master advanced driving techniques and become a ‘Dodge Certified Driver.
Jeff Ellsworth, Head of Brand at Dodge Middle East, said: “Motorsport and Drift-Racing continue to grow in popularity in this region, so there is a palpable demand for platforms that can provide the thrills and the skills desired by that audience, something that our one hundred years of racing heritage puts us in the best position to do. The ‘Dodge Muscle Experience’ also ensures that our customers are able to use their cars for what they were built for in a safe and fun environment.”
