Abu Dhabi is organizing the world’s largest autonomous racing league, which will take place at the Yas Marina Circuit in 2024.

Aspire has announced the launch of the event, which will have a prize pool of up to AED8 million (US$2.25 million) and will feature a Dallara-built Super Formula car.

Super Formula cars are the fastest cars in the world outside of Formula 1, and they’re equipped with enough self-driving racing gear.

Race spectators will be invited into a new world of entertainment, experiencing the thrill of face-to-face self-driving racing, live-updated screens with augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) infographics and live displays.

The alliance’s goal is to push the boundaries of autonomous mobility by hosting challenges to advance the development of autonomous racing and artificial intelligence (AI).

In addition, applied research in preparation for the alliance will develop cutting-edge and low-risk solutions to significantly reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions through improved efficiency, while raising safety and performance standards in motorsport and commercial transport.

Faisal Al Bannai, Secretary General of the Advanced Technology Research Council, said: “In addition to creating a community platform for racing fans, Abu Dhabi Automated Racing League will adopt an open development model to support faster progress, faster testing and larger Innovation. Machine learning and reinforcement learning will be key to gathering data and developing these vehicle technologies.”

Yoshihisa Ueno, President of Japan Race Promotion, Inc. said: “Our SF23 race car, which will be used in the Abu Dhabi Auto Racing League, represents a huge leap forward in terms of technical performance and, importantly, carbon neutrality, so it is very exciting to see it is driven by an autonomous technology stack.”

Andrea Pontremoli, CEO of Dallara, said: “The Abu Dhabi Automated Racing League will lead and drive autonomous technology to new levels of performance, safety, efficiency and, importantly, sustainability. Watch this space.”

Open to all teams who have participated in the Autonomous Driving Challenge, teams from universities, public and private research institutions around the world are welcome to participate.
