The Energy Racing Approach

Our mission is to train and coach drivers to achieve excellence. Our team works towards the driver’s goals, focusing on strengths and addressing weaknesses to help each driver to improve performance.

Our coaching focuses on everything from driver's technical and tactical skills, to mental and psychomotor skills, while stressing the overall physical fitness and ability required of dedicated motorsport athletes.


Energy Support Team

Our team of mechanics, engineers, data engineers and driver/coaches offers drivers the best support team to deliver success.

The Energy Dubai team is highly organized and professional, with proven track records in engine/carburetor tuning and chassis set up. We know how to use data and video analysis to perfect both the performance of the machine and of the driver.


In depth data analysis using the AIM Evo 4 data system, coupled with the AIM Smarty Cam for video analysis, allows us to interpret live data with video footage to help us maintain and refine equipment and to continuously learn and improve driver performance.

Professional, thorough equipment preparation, including surface table chassis alignment and engine dyno analysis, ensures that our drivers' equipment is in perfect condition every time a driver gets behind the wheel.

Management and Coaching

Our people make Energy Dubai the best F4 and Kart team in the UAE.
