Drama at the finish for Simpson Motorsport at Hankook 3X3H DUBAI
In the closing stages of race three, victory had looked set to go to the sister Simpson Motorsport Ginetta G57 (#4, Jordan Sanders / Simon Murray / Charlie Robertson), which had led comfortably throughout the final hour despite losing time during the mid-race pit stops. The #4 prototype though would crawl to a halt on the main straight of the 5.39km Dubai Autodrome after running out of fuel, and would ultimately be classified 2nd.

It was not all doom and gloom for the #4 machine, however. Impressively, despite terminal suspension issues preventing the Ginetta from starting Saturday’s race one at all, the #4 would start from pit road on Sunday morning and charge through the field to win race two outright.

In P3, the Speedworks Motorsport Ligier JS P3 (#22, Jack Butel / Kay van Berlo / Konstantin Gugkaev) walked away with a pair of class wins, having led both races outright intermittently. Despite an errant spin in the closing stages of race three, the British-based Ligier would also round out the overall podium in both races.  

Further back in P3, the Graff Ligier JS P3 (#44, Michal Broniszewski / Giacomo Piccini) secured the runners-up spot in both races, the only two-driver line-up in the field finishing 6th overall in the second race and improving to finish 4th overall in race three. Following its 2nd place finish in-class on Saturday, the SPIRIT OF RACE Ligier JS P3 (#48, Piergiuseppe Perazzini / Kriton Lendoudis / Marco Cioci / Rui Aguas) rounded out the P3 podium in both races on Sunday, despite day-long wheel and understeer problems. 

In CN1, the Krafft Racing Norma M20 FCs shared the class spoils on Sunday, with the #97 (Max Bortolami / David Cristini / Régis Tref) taking the class win in race two in a nail-biting finish that saw both Normas cross the line barely one tenth of a second apart. In race three, the sister  #98 entry (Daniel Kirmann / François Kirmann / Marc Vives) took its second class win of the weekend, but could not replicate its success from race one, in which the Norma finished 3rd overall and on the outright podium. On home turf, the AUH Motorsport Radical SR3 RSX (#177, Salem Al Nusif / Mohammed Al Nusif / Mohammed Al Hassawi) rounded out the CN1 class podiums in both races.

The 24H PROTYPE SERIES powered by Hankook is next in action on 9-10-11 March at the Hankook 24H SILVERSTONE in the UK. 2018 endurance race action meanwhile continues on 11-12-13 January with the 13th running of the Hankook 24H DUBAI, the calendar continuing through to November when the series returns to the Circuit of the Americas, Texas, USA, for the season finale on 15-16-17-18 November 2018.

Simpson Motorsport takes dramatic first Hankook 3X3H DUBAI win of 2018
Having taken pole position earlier that afternoon, the Simpson Motorsport Ginetta would make a slow start to the race – losing it lead in the process – and time on-track after its first pit stop, allowing the Graff Ligier to hit the front. A late charge though meant it was Jordan Sanders rather than Michal Broniszewski who crossed the line first after 82 laps of the 5.39km Dubai Autodrome. Graff would at least walk away with P3 class victory.

Early contenders for victory also included the Speedworks Motorsport Ligier JS P3 (#22, Jack Butel / Kay van Berlo / Konstantin Gugkaev) only for engine woes to scupper its process. The British-based Ligier was running comfortably at the front before a broken driveshaft brought it’s run to a screeching halt. Simpson Motorsport would suffer a similar setback with its second Ginetta entry (#4, Steve Tandy / Simon Murray), which was officially retired shortly before qualifying with a broken chassis.

The SPIRIT OF RACE Ligier JS P3 (#48, Piergiuseppe Perazzini / Kriton Lendoudis / Marco Cioci / Rui Aguas) would finish 2nd in the P3 class and 5th overall, albeit half a dozen laps further back after issues for Greek driver Lendoudis saw the Ligier swap ends several times on-track before drawing to a halt completely for several minutes at half-distance.   

Issues for both P3 entries therefore meant the CN1-winning Krafft Racing Norma M20 FC (#98, Daniel Kirmann / François Kirmann / Marc Vives) completed the podium, cementing the team a second prototype victory in Dubai after last year’s ‘exhibition’ races. The sister entry (#97, Max Bortolami / David Cristini / Régis Tref) would finish its race, without power, on the main straight, but would still be classified 6th.  

The event’s home-town entrants – the AUH Motorsport Radical SR3 RSX (#177, Salem Al Nusif / Mohammed Al Nusif / Mohammed Al Hassawi) finished 4th overall, a solid effort given that none of its three-drivers had raced hour-long stints before this weekend.

Tomorrow’s programme continues with race 2 from 9.00 till 12.00 hrs, followed shortly after on Sunday afternoon by race 3 from 15.00 till 18.00 hrs. Live timing and live streaming of the race in HD quality with commentary by Radiolemans.com will be available on the series’ website. The streaming will also be uploaded on the series’ Youtube channel. Regular updates will be published on Twitter (@24HSeries), Facebook (24H Series) and Instagram (24H Series).

The 5.39km track at the Dubai Autodrome is one of the most modern in the world; it is also one of the most challenging, as it has a combination of high-speedstraights and technical corners. The venue is part of the Union Properties Motorcity development in the greater Dubailand area. The circuit, which contains six different configurations, is designed to allow three circuits to operate simultaneously, safely and independently from each other. The result presents circuit users with unparalleled options.

The circuit was designed to meet the strictest safety requirements and is the first FIA-sanctioned circuit to incorporate wide asphalt run-off areas. The digital surveillance system provides complete coverage of all areas of the track and is linked to the Race/Safety control room for monitoring and saving on hard disk recorders.


Most facilities are housed in a two-storey ultra modern complex facing the grandstand. These facilities include Pit Complex, Race/Safety Control Room, Timekeeping Room, Media Centre, VIP Suite and Stewards Room. A world-class Medical Centre is situated behind the Pitarea for track emergencies during major events.

The CCTV system provides complete coverage of all areas of the track and is linked to the Race/Safety control room for monitoring. This means that incidents along the track during a race or event can be reviewed by the Clerk of the Course.

The Media Centre is fully equipped with individual ISDN lines, computers and fax machines for the local and international press, while the Pit Complex encompasses 30 individual team garages. At the rear of the Pits is a traditional racing paddock for team staff and hospitality.

The Dubai Autodrome offers a one-of-a-kind facility for VIPs to enjoy motor racing in a regal setting. The luxuriously appointed VIP Suites offers a spectacular view of the thrilling action with cars passing only meters away.
There will be a central fuel station available at the Dubai Autodrome. This means that you do NOT need to bring any refuelling equipment.

Specific for the Hankook 24H DUBAI:

  • Location: the refueling area at the end of the pit lane
  • Number of pumps: there will be 8 petrol pumps and 8 diesel pumps available

What you need to know:

  • All vehicles must be able to refuel directly with a commercial type hose as used in usual service stations
  • You only need to make sure your fuel inlet is prepared to refuel with a standard (commercial) fuel-pump-pistol. Therefore: the refuelling orifices of the tanks must be equipped for this operation.
  • The use of adaptors or filler bottles is strictly forbidden
  • The use of extra ventilation during refueling is only allowed in conjunction with a (ATL) vent-bottle
  • During the complete refueling operation, the windows and doors on both sides (left and right) need to be closed.
  • The team need to have TWO team members available at the refueling station during each refueling operation
    This is required to push the car away in case the engine will not start after the refueling operation. It is also allowed to assist the refueling operation by one or two own team member(s). IN THIS CASE THE (1 OR 2) TEAM MEMBERS MUST WEAR FLAMEPROOF OVERALLS, GLOVES AND BALACLAVAS.
  • Refueling will take place on basis, first come first refuel

When we need to load?

Where to load the cars
The cars need to be loaded on a dock near Rotterdam, the alternative is to ask Creventic a quote to load at you workshop. However if you are planning to load more than 1 car, all cars need to be loaded at one location. You have 2 hours free time to load the container , after that you need to pay €80,-/hour waiting fee.

We want to work together with 3 other teams and want to load 4 cars, how can we do that?
It has been done before. It is not easy and it takes courage. Maybe you need to demount the wheels so 2 cars will fit on top of each other. You can lift the cars with chains to the ceiling, or you weld an iron frame to put on the cars. All equipment should be place inside, outside, under, on top, or next to the cars. If you load 3 cars , then depending on the size and if demounting some bodywork you can put them behind eachother and construct a wooden floor above the cars for the tools and spares.

Which papers I need to present to Creventic for loading?
Creventic will take care for custom clearance. They will need an invoice with the value of the goods, a packing list with a description of the goods, Car brand, type, color , chassis number, number of toolboxes etc. An example of this papers will be provided

Under which regulations do the cars need to be?
All cars according the WEK regulations

Is there a noise limitation?
There is a noise limitation of 105 Db.

Could our car participate in the Wednesday Free test for the 24H DUBAI?
That is possible at the same costs as for the 24h teams

I have only one mechanic who wants to join me, how ?
Participants should see this as an adventure, we are there to enjoy racing together. We expect drivers and teams are helping eachother, besides that there will be a lot of people in the paddock for the preparations of the 24h Dubai. It is most likely that some mechanics will be happy to assist you for a pitstop.

Some team members would like to sleep in a pit box, is this possible?
Off course that is possible, but the air matrass you need to bring by your own. Each box has washing room, showers and toilets

Will we work from a pit box or tents?
Probably we will not have enough space to accommodate everyone in a pit box. So it is recommended to you bring a tent to have some shade

Can I take my diesel race car to this race in Dubai?               
Yes you can, but probable you need to refuel diesel cars with standard iron tanks during the race.

There is a central refueling zone at the end of the pitlane with commercial fuelpumps with 98 Octane gasoline.
Max speed 20km/h
