The event will be held in an area of 2,537m² which is located at the waterfront promenade between The Dubai Mall and Souk Al Bahar in Downtown Burj Dubai.

Apart from usual roadshow stuff like doughnuts and drags and powersliding in racing cars, this event offers some unique features which make it a must-attend party! One of them is Mohammad Bin Sulayem, the rally legend who will be driving Renault’s Formula1 car and races Renault factory drivers in drags. Also, as for regional launch of new Koleos crossover, The car will be driven in Ski Dubai, Mall Of Emirates! They gonna make a mess of the place!

Here’s the full timetable of the events: (source: carmiddleeast)

Thursday, April 9

Get down to the Dubai Autodrome to see local Rally legend and FIA Vice-President, Mohammed Ben Sulayem, driving the Renault F1 cars in a series of drag races against a selection of supercars and 360bhp Renault Megane Trophy cars driven by Renault team drivers.

Catch all the action between 1.00-3.00pm. The paddock area will be closed to the public, but you can get access to the grandstands see everything from there.

Friday, April 10

There’s a parade on the Emaar Boulevard between 3.00-3.15pm. You’ll see the Renault Megane Trophy and Renault Toons cars.

The Roadshow performances will be at Emaar’s Downtown Burj Dubai on the purpose-built platform. Along with fellow team drivers and stunt driver, Terry Grant, driving various Renault cars and entertaining the crowds with a sensational display of driving skills, Nelson Piquet Jr will be demonstrating the Renault Formula 1 car.

The Renault Roadshow also marks the official launch of the Koleos – Renault’s first 4×4 – across showrooms in the region. The Koleos will be driven up and down the snow-covered slopes of Ski Dubai accompanied by candle-bearing skiers in a twilight procession (yeah, that’s what the press release said – even though Ski Dubai is indoors).

This event will also be closed to the public, however there are massive windows all around the Mall of the Emirates that allow you to see into Ski Dubai.

So be there at 9.00pm and you should be able to get to see the car driving in the ice. Look very closely, and you may even get to see an F1 car in there doing donuts – no, we’re really not kidding.
