Some great news for Middle East Motorsport fans! The mighty Ozzy V8 Supercars are right up there when it comes to door to door, classic racing and to hear that they might be starting their season in the Middle East could potentially be the biggest coup imaginable.

There are reports coming out of the Supercar camp that there is about to be the biggest calender shake up in the history of the championship meaning the traditional starting fixture in Adelaide (The Clipsal 500) will be bumped to the third spot. It would however keep its traditional March slot on the calender.

The news is that officials are considering starting the 2010 season in Bahrian with the Desert 400 and then nipping across the Gulf to round two at the all new Abu Dhabi Yas Marina circuit.

It is understood a deal confirming a race in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates is close to being signed off – possibly within the next month. Which if I am being honest is potentially superb news for the grass roots motorsport that is organically growing year by year in the Middle East.

However, a spokesman for the championship is quoted as saying “Any speculation about the calendar is just that”

We can but hope!
