Dubai Autodrome prepares for the Grand Racing weekend

The Dubai Autodrome is preparing for the Grand Racing at the circuit, this weekend. Eighty racing teams will take part in the event and team crews will work to prepare their cars for practice and qualifying which starts on Thursday as a prelude to the main events on Friday and Saturday.

Last season the inaugural GP2 Asia Series was held at the Dubai Autodrome and as a result the circuit is familiar for many competitors, including Barwa Campos International Team's Vitaly Petrov. The 24-year-old Russian finished third in the first season and is looking forward to capitalising on his past experience in Dubai, “The Dubai circuit feels good in a GP2 car, and it's in quite an amazing city,” he said.

Seven teams are also race ready for the opening round of the Speedcar Series, with 14 cars ready for action. The Speedcars will be run by teams from six countries across Europe, the Middle East and the United States.

The 2008 FIA GT European Championship will also be decided in Dubai this weekend with seven drivers battling for top honours. A thirty six car grid sets the scene for these super sleek, production based, super cars to battle it out in this most prestigious FIA GT3 Championship.
