A1 Grand Prix

Dubai is playing host to the A1 Grand Prix this weekend at the dubai autodrome. This even holds special importance in the racing world because it is sort of the world cup in car racing with national teams participating. The event is also important for the UAE because it was founded by H H Sheikh Maktoum Hasher Maktoum Al Maktoum an important member of Dubai’s ruling family. the the detail’s and Schedule for the event are as under

I hope I can make it at least of the the days, won’t be able to on friday as am planning on going for the asiana championships lets see what happens, if any one of you go for the practice let us know how it was.

More information and tickets can be purchased from the official A1 Grand Prix website, I’m sure tickets will also be available at the venue. For all the Pakistani fans from Dubai, Adam Khan is representing Team Pakistan and hoping for support from Pakistani Expatriates. This year will not have a UAE tem but at least one team is under training for the next season.

    I attended the practice & qualifying days for couple of hours per day. It was OK, nothing very interesting. But the most interesting happened at the day end. i.e. a race between two boys, one was driving a modified Mustang and other one was driving modified evolution. The may have started from autodrome, but the cars passed by my car near Green Community round about. though it was dangerous was to drive, but I gues their speed must be above 200 kmph as I was driving at 140 kmph and they vanished with in seconds.

    Point is you dont need to go to autodrome to see races, just take a late night long drive on emirates road, you will find STREET RACING.
