A spectacle like no other on the motorsport calendar, the Gulf Historic Dubai GP Revival reinvigorates bygone eras of racing in one of the world’s most stunning locations.

From 8-10 December, the Dubai Autodrome will be alive with the sights, sounds and smells of classic motor racing, while the paddock will be a hive of entertainment and hospitality. Fans of all ages will also have the unforgettable opportunity to get up close to some of motorsport’s most legendary cars and drivers in the paddock before they take to the track, from Le Mans giants of the 1960s through to the cutting-edge racers of the early 21st century. Cars on this year’s entry list include the championship-winning Williams FW07C, the race-winning Tyrell 08 and the iconic Ford GT40. The latter is one of a number of sports car and endurance racing legends that will take to the track in celebration of the centenary one of the world’s greatest motor races – the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The style and fashion of the 1970s will be present throughout the Gulf Historic, with vendors from the period in the exhibitor village and dressing to match the time very much encouraged. There will also be a wide range of activities available for children, making it truly an event for the whole family, with children under 12 receiving free entry (not including the grid walk). Live music, performers and the finest middle-eastern cuisine will create an ambience and atmosphere that embraces the local culture, set against the absorbing backdrop of classic motorsport.
