Yas Marina Circuit is one the most technologically advanced tracks in the world, with a 5.281 kilometres long track, it ensures a great view from all around. A full team of Yas Marina Circuit’s instructors also attended the P ZERO™ Experience who were on hand to brief participants, provide them with coaching clinics, and sensitized drivers about on-track safety measures and protocols. The track day offered a day of test drives and driving sessions and showcased Pirelli’s latest tyre technology to enthusiasts.

“Every year the P ZEROTM Experience grows, and we see more people joining the event. This year was one of the best years we have had so far with more than 80 cars ready to drive on track. Pirelli always does an amazing job, with being the leading premium tyre manufacturer, P ZEROTM Experience surpasses expectations,” said Francesca Pardini, Instructor at Yas Marina Circuit for the P ZEROTM Experience.
