Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi
First taking to the track in the UAE in 2005, the GRC has run every season since. Last year was arguably the best season so far, with great grids, lap records broken and the dominant emergence of the SR3XX – with an SR3XX winning every single race of the season.
This next season has a lot to live up to. However, it’s looking like it will again be a great season with some new drivers and cars on the horizon, along with returning drivers from the 2022/23 season.
The season will kick off in October with a pre season test at the Dubai Autodrome on the 12th of October with the first round on the 22nd of October.
A new race format was introduced last season and proved to be very popular, so this will stay for the 2022/23 season.
Given the change to working week a typical race weekend will look as follows. The Dragon Racing Thursday test offers great quality test time, and this season Dragon will also offer an early entry offer for drivers committing to a series of test days.:
AM - 3 Hour Open Pitlane Test Session
AM - 3 hour Open pitlane
PM - 1 x 30 Min Official GRC Practise

Sprint Race 1 - 25 Min (Driver 1)

Enduro Qualifying - 15 Min (Driver 1)

The newly re-branded Radical Motorsport continues to throw their support behind the Gulf Radical Cup, and this year that will offer a fully paid race in a works SR3 XX at Silverstone in the 2023 UK Radical Challenge series.
Radical CEO Joe Anwyll commented:
“The Gulf Radical Cup is one of our flagship series globally, and truly showcases what Radical motorsport is all about. Driving standards are so high in the GRC that it attracts drivers from the global Radical driver network, but at the same time is proving to be a great breeding ground for drivers looking to get into motorsport. We continue to support the series as much as we can, and look forward to another great year of racing.”
An early entry offer will again be offered to drivers completing their entry before the end of July, along with a set of free Hankook tyres to the first 5 to do so.Enter Here
