About the Binona Radio Control Race Track
Located in Al Ain, UAE’s 4th largest city approximately 160km from Abu Dhabi, is the new Al Ain Sports Club which is home to the 25,000 seats Hazza Bin Zayed (HBZ) Stadium as well as the Binona Radio Control Race Track.
The Binona Radio Control Race Track is not only home to the RC Championships but also the 1/8 Buggy and Truggy International Off-Road Race, the UAE National Day Race as well as being named the host location of the 2016 Worlds.
The race track facility has both a 1/8 scale (195 feet wide x 125 feet long) and 1/10 scale track (75 feet wide x 100 feet long) with 15 foot wide lanes separated by 4-inch corrugated piping secured to the surface with 12-inch stakes to contain the cars within each racing lane.
The track layouts have off-cambered, flat, and bermed corners with 4 to 6 jump sections per layout, ranging from doubles, triples, step-ups, whoops, elevation changes, and tabletops. The perimeters of the tracks have a 4-foot tall chain-link fence that is 5 feet away from the edge of the track. This borders the entire track and contains any runaway or out-of-control cars from reaching spectators or pit areas.
Racing track surface treatment & seal
75 truckloads of clay type material were brought in and compacted then treated with an EBS Surface Seal to preserve and protect the racing surface and prevent dust allowing it to take rubber and groove up well while providing medium to high bite traction.
