about-dubai-autodrome

The 5.39km Dubai Autodrome circuit is one of the most modern in the world; it is also one of the most challenging, as it has a combination of high-speed straights and technical corners. The venue is part of the Union Properties Motorcity development in the greater Dubailand area. The circuit, which contains six different configurations, is designed to allow three racing circuits to operate simultaneously, safely and independently from each other. The result presents circuit users with unparalleled options.

The circuit was designed to meet the strictest safety requirements and is the first FIA-sanctioned circuit to incorporate wide asphalt run-off areas. The digital surveillance system provides complete coverage of all areas of the track and is linked to the Race/Safety control room for monitoring and saving on hard disk recorders.

Track experiences give the ‘man in the street, the chance to sample race cars and supercars through the Race & Drive Centre – a perfect place to hone skills and develop better driving abilities.

The track experiences combine classroom and behind-the-wheel instruction and are designed to give in-depth exposure to the latest in safety and race driving techniques. Hence the slogan: Experience it!

Keeping the venue operational almost 24/7 is the very popular Kartdrome which offers Arrive & Drive sessions, on both the indoor and the outdoor tracks, with state-of-the-art leisure karts.

In recent years Dubai Autodrome has deliberately positioned itself as the home of UAE national motorsport. The goal to develop and promote UAE motor racing at national level. Through the DAMC the venue hosts races for: NGK Racing Series including the Clio Cup and the UAE Sportbikes Championship. Other race series that visit the circuit include: Porsche Cup ME, Radical ME Cup and Formula Gulf 1000.

The highlight of the local motorsport calendar has been the Dubai Motorsport Festival, at the circuit which takes, on a distinctly local flavour with the catch phrase being: a celebration of UAE motorsport.

The Dunlop 24 Hour of Dubai endurance race has become a mainstay of the UAE’s prestigious sporting calendar and is the first major road racing event on the global calendar of any given year. Hosted at Dubai Autodrome the round attracts a huge entry of teams and drivers from all corners of the world including a number of teams and drivers from the UAE.
