The 2017 calendar of motorsport action will get off to a roaring start as the UAE’s premier urban racing series rolls into Yas Marina Circuit this weekend.

Throughout the two-day event on January, 19 and 20, more than 100 of the UAE’s best urban racers will put their cars to the test in the region’s rawest, grittiest, ultra-competitive environment and battle it out for more than Dh25,000 in cash prizes.

With the biggest and best field to date, spectators can watch drivers and their souped-up machines compete across five separate categories that include; 4×4 Super Street SUV’; ‘Index 11.5’; ‘Index 10.5’; ‘Index 9.0’ and ‘Super Street – Open Category’.

Saud Al Qaydi, motorsport manager at Yas Marina Circuit, said: “At Yas Marina Circuit, we have many forms of racing and Yas Super Street Challenge is motorsport in its rawest form. We are delighted to welcome the competitors who will return for our third season.

“The series was initially created so that motorsport enthusiasts from across the UAE could come together in a safe drag racing space and take it off the streets. We are thrilled to see the series back with one of our biggest number of entries so far.”

Yas Super Street Challenge offers a professional racing environment for grassroots level prices and with a raft of cash prizes again up for grabs, this season promises to be even more exciting than last year.

The cost of entry is only Dh400 per driver, and with access to the pit lane for support crews costing only Dh100, this season’s experience is not only unique, but affordable too.

Those quickest off the line can win a range of cash prizes, with Dh5,000 going to third place, Dh10,000 for second, and Dh15,000 for first.

Anyone who prefers to cheer from the grandstand is also welcome and entry is priced at only Dh50, dropping to Dh30 for students carrying a valid student ID. The on-track excitement will be complemented by a wide range of on-site food trucks for spectators to enjoy.

VIP tickets are available at Dh250, providing access to VIP parking, as well as the best viewing seats in the house, the drag paddock area.
