YAS SUPER STREET CHALLENGE

Yas Marina Circuit will be home to the exciting world of drag street racing this weekend, as the Yas Super Street Challenge lays down some rubber on its purpose built drag strip on Thursday and Friday.

Drivers from across the GCC and as far afield as Russia will come to battle it out for AED 25,000 in cash prizes as well as taking one step closer to becoming ‘King of the Street’.

Throughout the two-day event spectators will witness more than 100 racers putting their souped-up machines to the test in Round one of the region’s rawest, grittiest, ultra-competitive environment 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’.

PORSCHE GT3 CUP CHALLENGE

The Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge returns to the Middle East for an eighth time, showcasing the region’s top motorsport talent.

The format is considered to be the purest form of racing since competing drivers are restricted to the same model – Porsche 911 GT3.

Over the previous series, drivers have gone to race in competitions, such as the elite Porsche Supercup, the World Endurance Championship, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and even single seater GP2.

VENUE: Dubai Autodrome

Athletes of all abilities and experience can compete either as part of a team of three or individually in the two categories.

The short course is an 800-metre open water swim, followed by a 30km cycle and finally a 7km run.

For children as young as 10 years old, the supersprint course is the perfect way to get into the sport of triathlon with a 375m swim, 12km cycle and 2.5km run.
