Racing against the UAE’s most famous petrolhead

WATCH: Time Out challenges Supercar Blondie to a racing showdown

Sports & Outdoor

Chances are you’ve already come across Supercar Blondie, the supercar-loving petrolhead who’s one of the country’s top Instagram stars.

Given her love for motors, we here at Time Out Dubai offered her the chance to prove her skills behind the wheel, and challenged her to a winner-takes-all showdown.

But, sadly, we were minus a supercar (and, indeed, a driver’s licence), so we took our challenge to the Outdoor Kartdrome at the Dubai Autodrome in Motor City. When Ms Blondie answered the call, we were ready, with a team of Time Outers waiting in the wings for a chance to take on one of the biggest car enthusiasts around.

There were scrapes, crashes, over-competitiveness and even a bit of a scandal on the 1.2km track with a whopping 17 corners, some up-and-unders and plenty of opportunities to get some real speed up.

It got a bit heated, it got a bit intense, and the full video is below:

From Dhs137 per 15 minute session (multi-session discounts available). Open daily 8am-11pm. Dubai Autodrome, Motor City (04 806 2220).
