ABU DHABI // An 11-month-old Emirati received a birthday gift to remember after becoming the youngest owner of a new Maserati sports car.
Humaid Al Muhairi may be far too young to drive but that didn’t stop his family celebrating after he became the second major prize winner in Yas Island’s Say Yas summer campaign.
His delighted father was given the keys to the vehicle during a visit to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi last week.
“We were very surprised today to learn that Humaid was the winner of the Maserati,” said father Mohammed.
“Thank you so much to Yas Island for this wonderful day for my family and great prize.”
Humaid visited the theme park with his mother, Hind Al Hameeri, and his older brothers, Omair, five, and Ahmad, three.
The family had initially thought they were there to collect a much smaller prize.
However upon arrival they were greeted by Ferrari World Abu Dhabi’s general manager Jesse Vargas and deputy general manager Victoria Lynn.
They were alongside a host of the park’s characters bearing gifts including a gift box with a toy model Maserati along with keys to the real thing.
And it comes just days before Humaid celebrates his first birthday on September 4.
“Yas Island is about creating remarkable moments for families and friends of all ages,” said Mohammed Al Zaabi, the chief executive of asset management company Miral.
“Today, as we award the second Say Yas Maserati to 11-month-old Humaid and his family, we are also looking forward to welcoming him and his family back again and long into the future.
The Say Yas campaign runs until September 16 and gives visitors to Yas Island the chance to win Dh1 million in cash, another Maserati, a trip for four people to the Ferrari factory in Maranello, Italy, and weekly draws for one of three staycations as well as three weekly Yas Mall gift vouchers worth Dh10,000 each.
