At the invitation of Grazia Magazine & Lexus, I attended one of their Female Track Days, an initiative by the Lusail International Circuit.

No stranger to this venue, I immediately accepted the invitation, as it was an opportunity to be on the track instead of the usual, watching the MotoGP riders racing on this very track.

Upon arrival, I was greeted by friendly familiar faces.

“Our aim today is to provide our female guests a unique and amazing driving experience where they will push our vehicles to their limits.” Said Firas Mufti – Senior Marketing Manager Lexus

Once all the formalities were completed, we were presented with four models for testing on the track including the RC-F, GS-F, LC Hybrid and IS-F Sport. A co-driver was assigned to each car to guide and assist the driver on the safety measures of the track and the technological attributes of the vehicle.

My first test vehicle was a Lexus IS-F Sport, a fine and sporty sedan that looks good and offers a heap of driving enjoyment. It dives into corners willingly and exits them in a composed manner;  the interior of the IS, is a comfy place to be while sporting snazzy touches.

My second test drive was the Lexus RC-F. Designed for optimum high-speed stability to support outstanding performance, I definitely felt a better connection with the steering wheel, and a lot more confident when maneuvering my way through the circuit. With its superb styling, design and unprecedented power and handling capabilities,                    the RC-F opens up a new era for women on wheels.

Unfortunately due to prior engagements, I was unable to stay longer and test drive the other vehicles.

Thank you to the team of Lusail International Circuit, Grazia Magazine and Lexus for a pleasant Saturday afternoon driving experience.

A South African currently living and working in Qatar always striving to contribute towards the “change” where emails will be short, love letters brave and every “thank you” note be hand written! As I move through life, I want to share my experiences - the interesting places I am so fortunate to visit, the amazing people I meet and the profound moments I am blessed with. When I am not working, you can find me watching Pretty Woman or Devdas for the 101th time, I watch obscene amounts of television without a trace of shame, surf the net, visit main stream or boutique hotels, restaurants and street food vendors, specialized coffee shops or the local karak drive through stores, High end stores to 5Riyal stores, Home Interior Stores or drive aimlessly looking for inspiration for my next post, the ultimate photo opportunity or simply write about what captures my imagination.
