UAE // The Women's Auto Racing Club will once again stage a Unity Drive for UAE National Day on December 2.

Abu Dhabi will be the starting point for this year's drive and the route will conclude in Ajman at the Corniche at 6.30pm. The drivers will meet at the Abu Dhabi Corniche flagpole at 7.30am for registration. For drivers who cannot undertake the whole drive, the meeting points along the way will be Dubai Festival City at 10.45am, Sharjah's Qanat al Qasba at midday, the Fujairah Corniche ENOC at 2.30pm, Al Manar Mall in Ras al Khaimah at 4.30pm and Creek Park in Umm al Qaiwain at 5.30pm.
