This year's edition of the popular night time series features a totally new format aimed to further level the playing field, providing every driver with an equal chance while, encouraging consistency and clean driving in all races, coupled to some of the most attractive prizes ever offered in this form of kart racing in the UAE.

• Points will be awarded to the drivers for their finishing results in the random grid heats;
• Top 15 drivers from the heats, will automatically qualify for the Grand Final at the end of the evening;
• Next 16 drivers (P16 to P31) qualify for the Pre-final;
• Top five from the Pre-Final proceed to the Grand Final;
• Grand Final will be a race between the top 20 drivers on the night.

The series will be run over four rounds, and the driver with the most points will be declared 2014 Kartdrome Ramadan Champion and walk away with the grand prize of a full race weekend in the UAE Rotax Max Championship with the highly rated Energy UAE Kart Team, with equally prestigious Tony Kart offering a similar prize for the best placed Emirati driver.

Energy UAE Kart team principal Kevin Day said, "Many drivers currently competing in the UAE Rotax Championship emerged through the ranks of SWS and for that reason we want to reward successful drivers with a fully fledged experience on the national scene. In this way we create a natural link between serious leisure karting and the UAE Rotax Max Championship where our team has a strong and professional presence."

Tony Kart team manager Luigi Gariano explained the reasoning behind their involvement, "One of our targets is to promote motorsport in general and obviously the karting field. We would like to provide an incentive to attract UAE nationals into racing. The biggest percentage of Emirati kart drivers compete in the SWS Series therefore we will reward the best placed UAE driver in the 2014 Dubai Kartdrome Ramadan Challenge with one fully funded race in the 2014-2015 UAE Rotax Championship."

Additional prizes up for grabs include: Audi R8 Experiences, Camaro Experiences and Single Seater Experiences to take place at Dubai Autodrome.

Furthermore all four rounds of the 2014 Kartdrome Ramadan Challenge count towards the SWS Series world rankings, whereby the top ranked UAE drivers at the end of the season will progress to the World Finals.

This year's Ramadan Challenge race nights take place on 30 June, 7, 14 and 21 July - with driver sign-on at 20.15 pm, followed by first practice at 21.20 pm and the first of four heats scheduled to be flagged off at 21.50, with the Pre-final at 23.10 pm and Grand Final at 23.45 pm.

Final word to Kartdrome manager Ryan Trutch, "We are anticipating a good turn out and with the revised format it will give drivers a better opportunity for their talent to shine through. A big thank you to all our sponsors of the event whom are continually supporting Kartdrome activities for the good of the sport."
