British actor Jude Law has indulged his need for speed by taking to a race track in the United Arab Emirates (Uae) for a drive in a supercar.

The Sherlock Holmes star visited the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi and climbed into a race car for laps around the track, which will host an upcoming Formula 1 Grand Prix in November (13).

Law was pictured working with an instructor before tackling the circuit and posing with a team of track experts in his racing gear after completing the challenge.
