Some of its exhibit were like those inside the Ferrari World and Yas Marina. I visited last 2013 in Abu Dhabi, UAE. One of the best way to experience motoring show museum and feel the race track with out living the country. F1, moto, car and virtual racing games inside was exciting. Mostly energy related games, exhibits, mind boggling activities and car stuff.
The challenge goal is to inspire students from around the globe. To Test, design and build energy efficient vehicles. The winner will be determined by the farthest it runs with the use of least fuel. To push the boundary for fuel efficiency and creativity among young bloods.
