Busy 2011/2012 calendar for UAE national racing
The start of the 2011/2012 UAE national racing season is fast approaching and Dubai Autodrome is bracing for a busy motorsport.
The first race of the new season gets underway on Friday, 23 September with the round one of the DAMC Karting Championship at the Kartdrome where the country’s top karters will be in action in a variety of classes, including: Cadets, Max Juniors and Max Seniors while top leisure karters will be competing in the SWS Master Cup or the SWS Star Cup on the same evening.
