2024 Radical World Finals set for Abu Dhabi

The excitement is building as the Radical World Finals 2024 are set to take place at the iconic Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi from Nov. 6-10. This prestigious event will bring together Radical racers from around the world for a thrilling display of speed, precision, and competition.

Drivers from across the globe and Radical’s 14 Cup Championships will compete for the ultimate title, pushing their limits and demonstrating their expertise in Radical’s signature race cars. This event promises to be a highlight of Radical’s motorsport calendar, offering an unforgettable experience for everyone involved.

The father-son duo of Barry and Martin Hope, who head Radical UAE/GulfSport Racing, have been pivotal in establishing and growing the Radical market across the Gulf region for nearly two decades. Their dedication led to the inception of the Gulf Radical Cup in 2005, a series that has since become one of the most popular official Radical Championships worldwide. The Gulf Radical Cup’s early season schedule aligns perfectly with the World Finals, offering a unique opportunity for racers to extend their stay and maximize their racing calendar.


In partnership with the spectacular W Hotel Abu Dhabi – Yas Island, a very attractive room rate, which includes half-board has been offered to entered competitors, their teams, and supporters. The W Hotel offers stunning views of the circuit, has multiple dining options and has direct access to the paddock via a foot bridge over the track. Radical highly recommends booking the half-board option at the W Hotel, where you can enjoy lunch on the terrace overlooking the circuit in-between all the track action.

The World Finals will be open to all Radical customers worldwide, with no qualification necessary. The event kicks off on Wednesday November 6, with a track walk and welcome reception, followed by optional test sessions on November 7 for the drivers to get to grips with the circuit.

Friday, Nov. 8 provides more opportunity for optional testing, for those unfamiliar with the 3.2-mile Tilke-designed circuit, before the official practice session later that afternoon.

Qualifying and the first two heat races will take place on Saturday, Nov. 9, with the final heat race and the all-important Radical World Finals race on Sunday, Nov. 10. The event will conclude by an awards dinner and gala that evening at the W Hotel, which gives drivers and teams the chance to reflect on their week in the United Arab Emirates.

Arrive & Drive packages are available through Radical UAE and various teams in both the UK and UAE, the Radical factory will also be providing a fleet of SR10 XXR models under a Works Team banner.

Factory technical support and spares will be available throughout the event, ensuring that all participants can perform at their best.
