Dubai Grand Prix, the first heat of the UIM X-Cat World Powerboat Series 2012, kicks off on the 12th January off the shores of the Dubai International Marine Club in Mina Seyahi.

Yet again, some of the top powerboat teams and racers will be joining the Series for $1 million, one of the biggest prize funds in powerboat racing.

This year’s line-up will be packed with experienced drivers and throttlemen from all parts of the world, providing spectators with the most breathtaking and adrenaline-fuelled racing spectacle.

Approximately 20 boats will form the 2012 grid, with back-to-back X-Cat Champions, Extreme Marine, Fazza and Spirit of Qatar being among this year’s X-Cat contestants.

The 2012 Calendar will consist of six heats organized in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Khor Fakkar and Fujairah. Spectators in Dubai will be able to view the X-Cat powerboat action from the DIMC Mina Seyahi breakwater with free access, while the race will also be visible from the Palm Jumeirah close to Zabeel Saray Hotel.

The Dubai Grand Prix will start at 15:30 on Friday 13th. Official practice will take place on Thursday 12th from 14:00-16:00 and Pole Position will be judged the following day at 10:30.
