Athlete Eliud Kipchoge lived out his fantasies in Abu Dhabi this past weekend.
The ‘no human is limited’ star was among Kenyans invited by Mercedes MAG F1 to witness the thrills of the Grand Prix.
Eliud met world champion Lewis Hamilton and was among the lucky ones to be taken for a lap on the track.
The experience is referred to as hot lap, and isn’t cheap according to our research.
Pirelli, Global Tyre Partner of Formula 1 offers such an experience.
It costs from 15,000 dollars for a lap in the circuit with an experienced driver.
If you have deep pockets, you can get to ride the Aston Martin, Mercedes-Benz and McLaren supercars you will be required to sign a waiver, should any crash happen.
Next you will handed a helmet, belted in then taken through what will happen on the track.
Those with cash can also pay extra to rub shoulders with the elite. for instance Pirelli charges Sh700,000 for a three-day pass that includes indulging in all of the lobster, champagne etc.
That could cost a coll 22,000 dollars, or better yet Sh2.2million.
Thank you for this unforgettable experience @MercedesAMGF1!
Talk about going fast… https://t.co/Ak1KS2Yapr
