Aussie V8 Supercar Drivers Get Adventurous in Abu Dhabi

09 Apr 2012

Craig Lowndes and Lee Holdsworth zoomed through Jebel Hafeet as a part of a promotion

Was it a bird? Was it a plane? Or was it a pair of Aussie V8
Supercar drivers? Craig Lowndes, in his red 888 Team Vodaphone V8
Supercar, and Lee Holdsworth, in
Yas Racing School’s Aston Martin GT4,
raced on one of the world’s greatest driving roads, our very own Jebel
Hafeet Mountain Road, on 7 April to make quite the splash on the tarmac.

The duo was also spotted having a whale of
time white water rafting on the longest man-made white-water channels at Wadi
Adventure (Al Ain) on the same day.

The Aussie drivers were in Abu Dhabi to promote tourism and
will participate in lots more adventure activities organised by Yas Marina
Circuit during their time in the emirate. If you're in the capital, watch out for them!
