Report: 2014-2015 DAMC Championship Rules Remain The Same

Dubai Autodrome Motorsport Club (DAMC) have announced that the rules and regulations for the 2014-2015 season will remain the same for both the NGK Racing Series, incorporating the UAE Touring Car Championship and UAE Clio Cup, and the UAE Sportbike Championship including Rookie Cup.

In making the decision the DAMC has taken into account the wishes of competitors and teams, while advocating continuity and stability in the local racing series which invariably leads to cost savings for all concerned, and could serve as a catalyst to lure newcomers to the sport or alternatively entice others, who may have left for a season or two, back to the scene.

The 2014-2015 NGK Racing Series will cater for:
• Class 1 for UAE Touring Cars including 2000cc Turbo cars, Super Touring, S2000 two wheel drive cars
• Class 2 for UAE Touring Cars between 1601cc – 2000cc two wheel drive cars and including Renault Clio Cup cars
• Class 3 (GTA) FIA Homologated GT3 Cars plus cars
• Class 4 (GTB) Cup and Challenge Cars
• Class 5 (GTC) FIA Homologated GT4 Cars
• Class 6 which is open to virtually any race car, but requires inspection and approval from the DAMC
The 2014-2015 UAE Sportbike Championship will cater for:
• UAE Championship 600cc Sportbike Class for motorcycles up to 600cc, 675cc 3-cylinder and 850cc 2-cylinder
• Non-Championship Invitational 1000cc Sportbike Class for motorcycles up to 1000cc and 1198cc 2-cylinder

Dubai Autodrome general manager Richard Birch said, "As always we listen to what competitors want and have made the decision to stick to the rules we have had for the past few seasons. Stability is important for the sport and it was a logical decision to make ahead of next season. Having said that we are open to suggestions and ideas from the community, as our goal is to get as many race cars and bikes out on track."

It was also announced that, in an effort to bridge the gap between rookie riders and UAE Sportbike Championship racing, the DAMC will run a Super Lap competition as part of motorcycle track days at Dubai Autodrome on 6, 12 and 18 September 2014.

The concept gives entrants the opportunity to compete to set the fastest lap in three six minute sessions, catering for 600 Class and 1000 Class machines.

DAMC championship executive Richa Mergulhao explained, "The Super Lap series has been embraced after consulting with the motorcycle racing community who felt a need to have a form of competition which was short of being a fully fledged race.”

“Several years ago we had a similar concept under the DAMC Sprint Challenge, and the Super Lap is an evolution of this, which in turn provides riders a step up from a track day experience in the form of timed competition,” added Mergulhao.
