Kuwait, Jan 1st 2016- Kuwaiti ace endurance driver Khaled Al Mudhaf will join Dubai based Dragon Racing for the upcoming Dubai 24hrs, piloting the #888 Ferrari 458 Italia GT3.
This is the first International endurance race of the new year for GT’s, touring cars and 24H Specials, with one of the largest grids in the world, and a record breaking 100 cars entered this year.
In just a few weeks time the Dubai 24hrs will start at 2:00pm local time on Friday Jan 15th and finish on Saturday 16th at 2:00pm, after 24hrs of non-stop racing.
In January 2014, Khaled tasted success with the same car, winning the Dubai 24hrs Pro-Am class title.
Khaled returns to racing after a two year hiatus with a crew he knows well and familiar co-drivers, Matt Griffin, Alex Kapadia and John Hartshorne. Khaled has raced with both Alex and John previously in the European Le Mans series, where they piloted the LMP2 prototype at the Hungaroring circuit.
“This will be my third year racing in the Dubai 24hr and I’m under no illusions again how tough this one will be, there are around 100 cars this time and competition is always very tough. We will have a good strategy again and I know the crew and co-drivers well, so i think we will have a fighting chance,” said Khaled.
The race will be televised Live in Europe on Motors TV and in the Middle East on GearOne TV. The 24hseries will stream the live broadcasting also on their live website. www.live.24hseries.com.
