Completed in 2004, the Dubai Autodrome was the UAE’s first fully-integrated multipurpose motorsport and entertainment facility. At the heart of the Union Properties MotorCity development, it includes an FIA sanctioned 5.4km circuit with six different configurations, a race school, indoor and outdoor karting tracks, the Grandstand Retail Plaza, the Motorsport Business Park, a VIP Paddock Hospitality area and entertainment facilities ideal for events and corporate entertainment.
This project was a US$100 million investment which required the provision of detailed design and specification of various project elements. These included the design of the circuit topography in three dimensions; the coordination of consultation with drivers, riders, governing bodies, engineering consultants, architects and local authorities; the specification of all safety criteria; the definition of the pit and paddock complex; detailed input into the spectator facilities, VIP facilities, commercial facilities and a major contribution towards the project master plan.
Since its construction the Dubai Autodrome has attracted over US$3 billion in property investment in the area adjacent to the circuit, including the development of the Green Community Motor City currently housing 4500 people. The circuit hosts a number of international events, including the now-famous Dubai 24 Hours in January each year.
