General Manager’s Message

Dear Patron,
It is with great pride that I introduce to you Dubai Autodrome, the heart of UAE motorsport. The venue is part of the Union Properties MotorCity development in the greater Dubailand area.

The FIA-sanctioned circuit, which contains six different configurations and presents circuit users with unparalleled options, was designed to meet the strictest safety requirements.

Under the patronage of the Crown Prince of Dubai and Dubai Autodrome President, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Autodrome started to hold international motorsport events shortly after the circuit was complete in 2004.

Since then a number of illustrious events have taken place at the venue and some of the world’s most famous drivers have driven competitively or visited the circuit including the likes of Michael Schumacher, Niki Lauda, Jacques Villeneuve, Fernando Alonso, Kimi Raikkonen, Johnny Herbert, Jean Alesi, Sergio Perez, Romain Grosjean, Sebastien Buemi, Jenson Button, Kamui Kobayashi, Jean-Eric Vergne, Nico Rosberg and Robert Kubica, to name just a few.

The Dubai Kartdrome, an international standard karting track across the boulevard from Dubai Autodrome, hosts championship level karting and is most popular for the arrive and drive karting at both the outdoor and indoor venues.

The popular Welcome Centre, the first of its kind in the Middle East, provides a host of race track experiences catering for the novice level drivers up to the experienced driver. The track experiences combine classroom and behind-the-wheel instruction, designed to give in-depth exposure to the latest in safety and race driving techniques. Also very popular among local motoring community are the regular track days and track evenings (motorcycles and cars) which consistently attract a large amount of participants. Again safety is paramount during these track days.

Dubai Autdrome offers a one-of-a-kind facility catering for all motorsport and motoring needs from top level international motorsport through to manufacturer testing, launch events, corporate activities, national racing, leisure and professional karting.

We look forward to hosting you at our venue.
