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.

"Being able to control a 700kg, 1000 horsepower car only with your hands and your feet is... it's the best thing" - we hear you, Romain Grosjean 😍 🤩 ... See Less

Not the best driver, but a generally good guy.

All the expert race car drivers on this post 😂🤣😂🤣 Yeah, Grosjean isn't the best, but he's certainly better than all you facebookers knocking him 😉

Karim: "Being able to CRASH a 700kg, 1000 horsepower car only with your hands and your feet is... it's the best thing" - we hear you, Romain Grosjean"

U hit the barrier under safety car 😦 Can’t exit pitlane 😴 Let someone else drive

Ah the hate and cheap jokes on Romain Grosjean. I bet the majority of the haters here can’t even ride a tricycle without going flat on their faces! Get a life, kids.

The problem is you are not good enough. You crash even under saftycar rules.

But he can’t control it lol. Poor romain. Give me the wheel I’ll show you 🙃

Yeah takes a special kind of talent to spin a car in pit lane and end up facing the wrong way.

I used to love this driver, great talent but now he’s just unpredictable driver.

The best driver on the grid that knows how to crash

Of course I can't drive as well as Grosjean, but I can still differ a good race driver from a bad one.

...but I, I can not control it, not one bit.”

Wreck it Roman, coming to a safety barrier near you

Still mastering the art of leaving the pitlane!

To whomsoever it concerns, he has 10 podium finishes to his name!!

Best season for Grosjean. He didn’t crashed in any race so far.

Even rarer treat when you can't manage it often. 😃

Hes not good at controlling it though, he crashes a lot

Same feeling i get when im drunk out of my mind, and pissing all over the bathroom..

Control is a bit loose, generally it ends up in the wall

Try using them then!

“Being able to control.”

Except he can't control it...even under a safety car.

Yea,but Grosjean doesn't mean himself by "able to control" right?

... and beach it on the gravel.
