Formula Gulf Academy

Testing Opportunity on the Yas Marina Grand Prix Circuit
19th and 20th December 2018.

GulfSport Racing announces a unique opportunity for experienced racing drivers to gain amazing seat time in their 186bhp slicks and wings single seater race cars alongside European F4 drivers preparing for UAE F4.

You will drive the floodlit circuit on two evenings. On day 1 you will get familiar with 12 corners of the 2.36kms South Circuit then move up to the full 21 corners of the 5.5kms Grand Prix circuit on day 2 on new tyres. You will work with top international driver coach Andy Pardoe in all sessions using data and video and you will be engineered by GulfSport’s Martin Hope. Using the same Hankook slick tyres as the F4 cars, on a lighter chassis and with more power, lap times will be comparable.

Over the course of two days you will have up to 360 minutes of track time to use. FIA homologated racewear and HANS required.

This testing not run under an FIA Race permit so there is no need for you to request Start Permission from your home ASN.

Limited availability. For more information please send your details to or call Martin on +971 50 2725091 or Barry on +44 7517 335172
