I’ve been sat on this cheeky bit of on board footage from Tarek Elgammal for a while now so firstly let me apologise for the delay in getting it to you. So with my apology dealt, Ill let Tarek take up the script….

REEM International Circuit… What a track!!!

Sure it is not as big & impressive as Yas Marina Circuit, nor Bahrain International Circuit & Dubai Autodrome; but what it lacks in size & facilities (and run off areas for that matter..), it certainly makes up for in excitement.

The circuit is challenging, and very rewarding.. assuming you get it right. The challenge is not only from the layout & the camber & elevation changes, but also from the bumpy surface compromising your braking, turn in & power down; all the while being very conscious of the ring of desert sand & armco barriers you feel you could reach out & touch.

My race weekend in the Castrol/NFS Performance Engineering Boutique Supercar was a reasonably successful one, though it was very stressful & trying throughout the lead up & the race weekend itself.
It took a week & a half to get my visa, in fact I only got it 3 hrs prior to my departure. It was a minor miracle I made it to the flight at all.
