With only two Volkswagen Golf GTI TCRs entered for this year’s race in Dubai, Volkswagen may not have had the biggest presence in the TCE field compared to the various Audis and Cupras, but that didn’t prevent the German manufacturer from repeating its TCE division win in Dubai from last year. Newly-created Swiss team Autorama Motorsport by Wolf-Power Racing drove its Golf GTI TCR (#112, Marlon Menden / Fabian Danz / Yannick Mettler / Stefan Tanner / Jerôme Ogay) to a convincing TCE division and TCR class win, four laps ahead of the Bas Koeten Racing Cupra TCR (#125, Ronny Jost / Julien Apotheloz / Loek Hartog / Oscar Graeper). The Red Camel-Jordans.nl Cupra TCR (#101, Ivo Breukers / Henry Littig / Cody Hill / Klaus Kresnik) rounded out the top three. TCR class pole winners AC Motorsport led for most of the race with the Audi RS 3 LMS (#188, Stépane Perrin / Vincent Radermecker / Tom Boonen / Gilles Magnus), but damage after a collision and a subsequent fire cost valuable time and the team came fifth as a result.
 
SP3
Both teams in the SP3 class had a wide range of troubles, but the Vortex V8 Vortex Scirocco (#301, Philippe Bonnel / Thomas Cordelier / Franck Lefèvre / Nicolas Nobs) took the win in the two-car class from the CWS Engineering Ginetta G55 (#378, Colin White / Steven Wells / Oliver Baron / Angus Fender).
 
A3
A3 class honours went to the G & R Motorsport BMW E46 M3 (#603, Danny van Dosselaer / Karlo van Dosselaer / Geert Houdhoofdt / Geert Diericx / Jasper Diercx) from the two Lotus PB Racing Lotus Elises (#634, Stefano D’Aste / Matteo Deflorian / Nicolò Liana / Michael Cordini, and #633, Vito Utzieri / Marco Fumagalli / Mauro Guastamacchia / Maurizio Fortina / Mark Speakerwas).
 
CUP1
The fun-M Motorsport team saw its BMW M235i Racing Cup (#802, Simon Klemund / Paul Sieljes / Christopher Rink / Ioannis Smyrlis / Harald Rettich) win the CUP1 class, three laps ahead of its only class rival, the DUWO Racing entry (#840, Frédéric Schmit / Nicolas Schmit / Jean-Marie Dumont / Thierry Chkondall / Youssef Bassil) that had led for a long time, but lost time due to a gearbox issue.
 
In total, the race had 19 code 60 neutralisations with 38 laps completed under code 60 by the leader. Action in the 24H GT SERIES and 24H TCE SERIES, both powered by Hankook, continues with the Hankook 12H MUGELLO (29-30 March), the start of the European Championship season. However, CREVENTIC will be organising its next event in the Middle East in a fortnight already with the opening round of the 24H SERIES Middle East Championship, the Hankook 6H DUBAI, and the season opener of the TCE MIDDLE EAST Series, both at Dubai Autodrome on 25-26 January.
