World's Greatest Keeper Schmeichel Drives A Single Seater At Autodrome

World's Greatest Keeper Schmeichel Drives A Single Seater At Autodrome

Once voted as the 'World's Best Goalkeeper' for two years in a row - 1992 and 1993 - Peter Schmeichel enjoyed what he claimed to be one of his best days in Dubai when he got behind the wheel of the F1 style Single Seater at the Autodrome.

The big Dane is best remembered for his hugely successful years at English Premiership club Manchester United for whom he made no fewer than 292 appearances, and captained them to the 1999 UEFA Champions League to complete the treble that year, and for winning UEFA Euro 1992 with Denmark.

Schmeichel was visiting Dubai on a two fold trip: invited by Emirates NBD as a Manchester United Ambassador to attend the Dubai Desert Classic and to play in the Pro-Am.

Along the way he made time for a private visit to Dubai Autodrome after being coaxed by long time friend and race instructor Michael Prophet to experience a race car on a race track.

Prophet admitted, "My biggest fear was getting Peter in the car. He is not a small guy. We fitted all 1.93 metres of him in beautifully. I was not worried about his hand eye co-ordination as he has proved that over the years, but his driving was excellent and he had a great day."

Schmeichel was put through the paces in a 'off the shelf' Single Seater experience which is one of several adrenalin infused driving packages available at Dubai Autodrome.

At the end of his on track adventure Schmeichel, boasting a huge grin, said, "Can't believe this fantastic track was here all along. It's brilliant. It's been the best day ever in Dubai and I will be back for the [Audi] R8's. I feel like big kid in the world's largest playground."

Licensed drivers have the opportunity to experience driving a variety of high performance, race prepared, cars under the expert tutelage and guidance of qualified instructors, on a FIA approved race track where safety is paramount.
