The Gulf Historic Dubai GP Revival is a celebration of a golden age of motorsport, where museum pieces come to life and the roar of high-octane engines rips across the Emirate.
The event relives Formula 1 and Le Mans’ most exhilarating generations.

The second edition of the GHDGPR is set to be bigger and even better with two new racing classes, 100 thoroughbred racing cars, well-known period and contemporary racing drivers from around the globe. For drivers, car owners, fans and corporate partners alike, the GHDGPR is a novel opportunity to share their need for speed, whilst enjoying the fabulous hospitality for which Dubai is famous.
