All eyes might be heading to Yas Marina this weekend as the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix comes to town, but a week before the F1 boys landed, Dubai was hosting its own weekend of racing.

The Dubai Motorsport Festival was a two-day schedule of races at the city’s Autodrome, featuring action from the UAE Touring Cars, Sportbikes and GT cars, as well as action from the FG1000 single seaters, Porsche GT3 Cup Middle East Challenge and Radical Cup.

You can read all about the racing itself over at the Dubai Autodrome’s TrackTalk pages, but for now enjoy our shots from the weekend, courtesy of snapper extraordinaire Pete West.
