The 5.39km Dubai Autodrome circuit is one of the most modern in the world; it is
also one of the most challenging, as it has a combination of high-speed
straights and technical corners. The venue is part of the Union Properties
Motorcity development in the greater Dubailand area. The circuit, which contains
six different configurations, is designed to allow three racing circuits to
operate simultaneously, safely and independently from each other providing users
with unparalleled options.
The circuit was designed to meet the strictest safety requirements and is the
first FIA-sanctioned circuit to incorporate wide asphalt run-off areas. The
digital surveillance system provides complete coverage of all areas of the track
and is linked to the Race/Safety control room for monitoring and saving on hard
Track experiences give the ‘man in the street, the chance to sample race cars
and supercars through the Race & Drive Centre – a perfect place to hone skills

The track experiences combine classroom and behind-the-wheel instruction and are
designed to give in-depth exposure to the latest in safety and race driving
techniques. Hence the slogan: Experience it!
Keeping the venue operational almost 24/7 is the very popular Kartdrome which
offers Arrive & Drive sessions, on both the indoor and the outdoor tracks, with
state-of-the-art leisure karts.
In recent years Dubai Autodrome has deliberately positioned itself as the home
