Some weeks ago, my fabulous friend Sam got invited to drive her swish Aston Martin in the Dubai SUPERCAR Parade. Much to my delight, she asked me last week if I’d drive with her. Never one to turn down an opportunity to pose, I said a hearty OMG YES!
For reasons I shall not divulge (some lax organisational skills on the part of the Parade organisers), Sam and I found ourselves standing in the starting pit, being shaken by the thrum of a hundred supercar engines…with no car to drive!
As the cars left the pit one by one, our hopes of joining the parade diminished and our bottom lips began to tremble with disappointment… until our luck changed and a gorgeous white Aston Martin Rapide stopped to allow us to hop into the back seats.
Thank you to Joe the owner of the Rapide. He and his wife welcomed us to join them on the Parade – they were super cool!
The drive was fun! A bit less organised than I had imagined (well, this is Dubai, inshallah had to feature somewhere right?!) – but at some points the crowds lining the route down Sheikh Zayed Road were so close we could high five them through the windows!
It was a fun afternoon – which ended with me finding my new dream car…
Out of all the super cars on display, this was the one that I wanted to take home:
Until next time.
