With summer approaching and temperatures soaring it’s a good time to head inside – at least until the sun goes down.
Located right on the Dubai Autodrome, the Park Inn is the perfect place to be part of all the Autodrome excitement and so much more.
The Autodrome has a full calendar running right up until June including: Thurs, May 17 – Roll Racing DXB (Main Straight); Mon, May 21 – Ramadan Challenge RD1 (Dubai Kartdrome); Mon, May 28 – Ramadan Challenge RD2 (Dubai Kartdrome) and Thurs, May 31 – Roll Racing DXB (Main Straight).
Formula DXB Single Seater Experience and Super Car Experiences also continue through summer.
Away from the track once Ramadan begins the Park Inn will be setting up a special Iftar tent where you can celebrate an authentic meal each night from sunset to 21:00 for just Dh89.
The menus at the Park Inn are carefully selected by their expert chefs focusing on flavor and fun, with special consideration given to nutrition so the Iftar is sure to be both delicious and healthy.
Once Ramadan is over the tent will then convert into World Cup central where you can watch all the action from Russia 2018 – with shisha available.
Or if you feel like hitting the course for a quick golfing-break the Golfers Arabian Delight package is available.
Starting from just AED 500 per night the package includes room-stay, breakfast, 18-holes at the nearby Arabian Ranches Golf Course and a 20% discount on Food and Beverage. Rental Clubs are available for an additional cost.
Discounted course rates are also available at the Els, Trump and Jumeirah golf estates.
If you want to refresh after your 18-holes there is a well-maintained pool area so you can keep in shape with a quick swim, plus the Park Inn offers an outstanding gym.
Or if you are looking for something different try the IMG Worlds of Adventure – Quencher, which includes room stay and a ticket to IMG Worlds of Adventure, the largest indoor theme park in the world, for just Dh429 per night.
So whatever you are after this Ramadan and summer – Iftar, golf, motor sports, or a World of Adventure – the Park Inn by Radisson at Motor City in the place to be.

Whether you’re a total beginner or seasoned runner, the whole family is encouraged to take part in the Cigna Park Run, which will feature events of varying distances – 2.5km or 5km on Saturday, May 5.
Jon Norris from event organisers Race ME said, “We’re very excited and happy to announce one of the first Park Run concepts here in Dubai sponsored by Cigna health insurance. It’s a free timed fun run in a Dubai park that the whole family can participate in and the first of several planned runs this year and more to follow through 2019”.

There might still be a few weeks until the schools break up for the summer but budding footballers can still remain active with IFA Sport’s Ramadan Football Camp.
Running from May 20 to June 14 at Dubai Sports World (Dubai World Trade Centre), the camp is open for 4-to-14 year-olds, who will develop and learn new skills under the academy’s qualified coaching staff.
IFA Sport are no strangers to organising summer camps with their previous editions proving hugely popular and this year’s will be no different.
“The Ramadan camps are a great way to keep the kids busy in the quieter months. As we run at indoor venues the heat is also no problem,” said Jess Prelle, marketing manager at IFA Sport.
“We get around 80 kids per day at our camps which are split into age groups and each have a dedicated and highly qualified coach.”
She added: “We run a football curriculum which means that no day is the same and the kids don’t get bored.
“Each day focuses on a different aspect of football with themes such as ‘Stay On The Ball’, ‘Control Possession’, ‘Take Your Chance’ and ‘Win The Ball’. Players then have the chance to test their skills in structured mini-tournaments. Players also undertake a series of Skills Challenges, receiving comprehensive performance reviews at the end of the week. In addition to all the drills, there’s always plenty of match time too.”
Sessions are held from 14:00 to 16:00 between Sundays to Thursdays, costing Dh50 per day.
Although there’s a few weeks to go until it begins, Prelle has urged parents to enroll their children now for what will be a fun-filled camp.
“With over a decade of experience in the region, IFA Sport is the largest grass roots independent sports academy in the UAE with a brand vision to help more kids get more out of sport,” she said.
“IFA Football Camps are designed to give players the opportunity to progressively develop their football skills in a fun and positive environment. During the five-day camps, players will learn about all areas of the game under the tutelage of the vastly experienced UEFA qualified coaching team.
“In Ramadan our hours are 2-4pm which is a great option for the kids to join straight after school whilst parents might still be busy.”
