Bcarr6 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
24 Hours of Dubai 2017

We are getting closer to the first big race of the year, the 24hrs of Dubai.

Really interesting entry list this year, again close to 100 cars.

Below is my observations and an entry list for GT3 down to TCR, I didn't get into the lower tourer and cup cars.

You can find the full list at

http://www.24hseries.com/24h-Dubai/entry-list


Notes

*GT3 - 25 cars: 5 Porsches, 5 Audis, 7 Mercedes, 1 Dodge, 1 Corvette, 2 Renaults, 4 Lamborghinis

*WRT are back to defend their win from 2016, this time with two cars. The number 4 car with Frijns, IDE, Leonard, Mies and Maes should make for a strong contender.

*both Black Falcons look strong as usual, they had a rough gig last year with overheating so will be interesting to see them run full steam.

*of the 11 GT3 pro cars, 4 are AMG's and 4 are Lambos. I fancy the chances of the two grasser cars!

*GT4 - 20 cars: 10 porsches, 1 Lotus, 1 new BMW, 3 old BMW, 3 Ginettas, 1 Nissan, 1 KTM

*this has to be one of the best GT4 turn outs for a enduro like this.

*the Nissan looks good with Mardenborugh on board, although it is probably one of the oldest spec cars in the field next to the Ginetta.

*the new factory run BMW M4 will make its world wide debut, with collard, Klingmann, and Jorg Miller it looks pretty solid if it can run reliably.

*we will also see a broader debut (after a VLN debut this year) for the Audi RS3 LMS TCR. The list just updated today to include a second car so I hope one of them has a decent set of drivers on board to show what it can do.

All set to be another entertaining race, I'm looking forward to it.
Some very interesting drivers on that list.

I'm not sure who I'd like to win at this stage, but seeing as every edition has been won by a German car, I'll probably end up supporting one of the Lamborghinis!

Interesting to see Marcel Fassler in one of the WRT Audis. No Ferraris

I think I'm most excited to see the. We BMW M4 GT4, even if it runs a low profile acting as a test run.

Big list but gt3 is basically all German with a few Lamborghini's. This is the debut of the BMW GT4 right?

No Motors TV coverage this year? Nothing showing on their schedule.

Usually on YouTube in great quality and never geoblocked.

Last years coverage was great

I'm lucky enough to be going along to this - will try and post an update or two whilst there. Not going out until Wednesday and then back on Sunday. Quite a whistle stop tour - but at least the time difference isn't too much (compared to the UK).

I had been ignoring Creventic for the past couple years---simply too much racing to follow, and too much work---but this looks like a great chance to see some Rolex drivers in action ahead of time ... and I just saw their Prototype Challenge schedule.

Is this something new? It seems a pretty courageous venture, fie serious prototype endurance events. Can they fill the field (assuming this isn't new for 2017)?

Really psyched that I can watch this on my computer ... or my TV via my computer.

WRT? Black Falcon? Grasser? My money would be on of those five.
