SWS & Ramadan Challenge


Based on the Arrive and Race principal, the Sodi World Series (SWS) gives you the chance to compete with up to 33 other karters, with races being held twice a month at Dubai Kartdrome.

We provide the kart, suit, helmet and gloves, but instead of just driving in a practice session you are entering a highly competitive sprint race!

SWS is currently the most affordable type of racing there is, and the series collates results from different SWS races around the world.  The points scored from each SWS event are then calculated to establish the International Leisure Ranking and the top ranking drivers in each country get a ticket to the annual Sodi World Series Grand Final in Europe.

The series is divided into SWS Juniors from 7-14 years old and SWS Seniors from 15 years and up (Masters sub-category is for 35 years and up).  Both categories race on the Dubai Kartdrome outdoor circuit.  Rise to the challenge and enter now!
