As the popularity of motorsport in the Arabian Peninsula continues to grow, fed by Formula One extravaganzas hosted by the likes of Abu Dhabi and Bahrain, more and more petrodollars are finding their way into state-of-the-art circuits and increasingly imaginative road courses. Hugging the coastline of Dubai, the Madeenat Al Bahar street circuit takes in all the spectacular sights of one of the world's most modern cities, its expansive avenues and modern highways carrying drivers through a scintillating blend of 14 turns and mouth-watering straights lined with palm trees, soaring skyscrapers, striking sculptures, and spectacular ocean vistas. Despite its location far away from motorsport's traditional hotbeds, Madeenat Al Bahar offers a unique combination of challenge and beauty that gives many of the world's more established tracks a run for their money.
