How to get a race licence?
Well, it is very easy. One can contact Furiosa Racing for the application forms, take a simple medical examination at any clinic, attend an assessment class (24 October 2019 starting at 1 pm at Dubai Autodrome before the Club circuit Track Day in the evening for a small fee of 250 AED) and once these are completed, all the information is submitted to the Emirates Motorsports Organisation.
Another great news is the announcement that Dubai Autodrome and Emirates Motorsports Organisation have been working tirelessly to reopen the International and Grand Prix layouts which will now be used at public Track Days and on national race days for the motorcycles.
