Gulf Radical Cup Recommences with Dubai Test

Back to the news

The Gulf Radical Cup Pre Season test took place this week at the Dubai Autodrome, with 7 of the championship drivers taking the opportunity to get a step ahead of the rest of the field before this weekend's first event.

Running on the National Circuit (the same track for the first rounds next week), saw three drivers dipping into times in the 1m25s, getting close to race pace! This also proved as a very valuable 3.5 hours of Radical only test time for a couple of drivers that will be making their racing debut next week.

Johnny Khazzoum who took part in the test commented:

“It was a wonderful experience to be a part of the Gulf Radical Cup Pre Season Test, it was highly productive having the track exclusive for Radicals and very well organized by GulfSport Racing. The 3 and a half hours were more than enough to test and help us get ready for the race. It's electrifying to know that there will be more cars on the gridline on the first race. 

My personal experience with three events last season was absolutely phenomenal; hence I decided to participate in the full Championship 2020-2021! Gearing up with full-throttle practice sessions and a month-long preparation, I am truly thrilled and excited for the upcoming races. I am looking forward to a challenging and competitive race with the gentlemen. I would like to wish everyone all the best and a safe racing season this year.”

Including the Dragon Wednesday test on the 11th prior to the event, there is a total of 8.5 hours of track time available to drivers for the first event!

Rounds 1 and 2 see both races and qualifying take place on the Friday (13th), so it will not only be important to be quick but maybe the fittest drivers might emerge first at the finish line!
