UAE: Dubai Autodrome and Kartdrome braced for fresh action packed season

New 2015-2016 Season 2

Dubai, UAE, 7 September, 2015: Dubai Autodrome, the Heart of Motorsport in the UAE, is gearing up for the start of a bumper 2015-2016 season of racing action.

Between a curtain-raising SWS Sprint Races and the season’s climax on 29-30 April, the Dubai Autodrome and Kartdrome tracks will stage an impressive 50 days of practice, qualifying and racing activity.

The latest Autodrome race season was officially launched during a function hosted in Dubai last Wednesday by Mohammed Ben Sulayem, President of the Automobile & Touring Club of the UAE and FIA Vice-President.

Dubai Autodrome General Manager, Richard Birch said: “The highlight of the year will be the now traditional Hankook 24H Dubai on 14-16 January 2016, along with a host of UAE National Race Days at the Autodrome featuring: Porsche Cup Middle East, UAE Superbikes, Radical Cup Middle East, NGK Racing Series, Formula Gulf 1000 and for the first time at the venue the MRF Challenge Formula 2000 Championship, plus the Fun Cup endurance race.”

“For the DAMC series we have once again kept the entry fees the same as they have been for the past decade as we continue to focus on developing motorsport in the UAE.  We have listened to the considered input from competitors and agree that stability is the best way forward, and this has been embraced for the forthcoming year,” added the circuit boss.

Kartdrome Manager Ryan Trutch said: “Our venue and staff is braced for a very busy season of racing with the Dubai O-Plate race day in January, featuring international drivers against our local home grown talent – this will be one of the highlights of the karting season.

“We are proud to host two double headers of the 2015-2016 UAE Rotax Max Challenge, along with our world famous Kartdrome Endurance Championship driven by MINI and a busy schedule of Sodi World Series Sprint races throughout the year.”

“We are also excited to have conceptualized Emirates Schools Karting Championship (ESKC) along with the support of the ATCUAE and under the Patronage of Dr Mohammed Bin Sulayem.  We have partnered with circuits Al Ain Raceway, Al Forsan and RAK Track which will provide the effective introduction and development of karting at grassroots level across the UAE,” added Trutch.

We stand with all those fighting against racism in any form

Comment on Facebook

We stand with #F1 do you always have to reminded of true responsibility by the Champ #LewisHamilton Proudly black/colored❤️👌🙏👀

Really F1? And yet they held a Bahrain Grand Prix literally while the locals were protesting and being oppressed. One post created by your PR team while you’ve done nothing for real change seems quite meaningless. Do better.

Hamilton was on the receiving end of racism during the pre season tests at Catalunya in 2008, so he knows what it’s like firsthand. Good job he spoke out, especially with what happened in Minneapolis last week

Took a bit of criticism from your best driver for you to say something about it as a whole. We do this together.

Will F1 really take a stand and not hold events in countries with systemic human rights violations? I doubt it.

So much racism in F1. I can’t wait for the day a person of color drives the best car on the grid, makes the most money, and becomes a multiple world champion... oh wait... never mind 🙄

Whatever..day late..dollar short..only speaking up after prodding from Lewis...PR lip service...

Humans are imperfect and forever will be. I doubt you can oppose and eradicate it. Each and every individual need to decide to not let these evil things from inside to take control of him. Once all the protests are over it will silence down only for it to come back again. How soon another protest will happen doesn't matter. How capable EACH and EVERY human is from getting controlled from the evil within is the real challenge. The lack of self control is the greatest human imperfection.

Nice to finally hear from the American owners of F1. Been left to Lewis to lead the charge again.

Let's be real, had Lewis Hamilton not called them out. They wouldn't have said anything.

You missed the caveat... *yet we’ll still continue to do business & hold races in Russia, China, Bahrain, Vietnam & Abu Dhabi as well as for pushing for a deal with Saudi Arabia. Because human rights & oppression doesn’t bother us when there’s $ to be made.

Seems like a miscalculated PR stunt to me. I don't think F1 has any business talking about anything other than racing, considering that F1 races are regularly held in countries with questionable-at-best records in human rights and equality. This is all rather disappointing, but what can you expect from an American-owned series.

Let's fight against police brutality also! Why none entity can write it explicitly?

What about all of the roits, and looting. Nothing will be said about it? People’s businesses ruined by this. But nothing will be said about it?

We have to fight against this racism together. And also against the police brutality.

Should have done this before Lewis accused the whole paddock of racism

Lewis Hamilton is the voice of F1

they're not gonna buy tickets or subscriptions, bro.

I hope this isn't supporting the beating of innocent people and the burning/looting of innocent peoples businesses!

This is the first time F1 has a “political” view on things. Next: terminate the contracts with China?

What is this about?

This is better I can support this message forever !!! Every other company charity and celebrity that are jumping on the band wagon can just do one ! Well done F1

Looks as though LH got his way...whining works

Well done Lewis for forcing this reaction and well done to F1 for putting it out!

Hypocrisy by F1. Took Lewis Hamilton to highlight the fact. Maybe F1 will boycott countries with human rights issues or will you continue pleasing the money men?
