Entries announced for Abu Dhabi UIM F2 Season Finale

Please Share!

With the first ‘Free Practice’ session due to take place in just one months’ time for the final round of the 2019 UIM F2 World Championship, now seems a good opportunity to see who has shipped their raceboat to the UAE for the Grand Prix of Abu Dhabi.

It will be the first time that Abu Dhabi will host a round of the UIM F2 World Championship and just like the FIA Formula One World Championship and FIA World Rally Championship, we already know who will wear the crown come the prize giving but amongst the twenty drivers expected to line up to compete on 1825 metre course laid out opposite the Corniche are Duarte Benavente, Ola Pettersson and Ferdinand Zandbergen.

All of whom have tasted champagne at previous races this season and all have a realistic chance of collecting a UIM F2 World Championship medal.

It’s the Scandinavian drivers who field the most entries, four from Norway and one each from Sweden and Finland.

Four drivers will represent the UAE, with the UK and Latvia both having two. Drivers from Spain, Portugal, Lithuania and the USA compete the field once again making the UIM F2 World Championship a truly global event.
