Slightly concerned that I’m just chatting to myself here, but just in case there are interested forum lurkers, here are two albums of photos from Dubai:

Start to dusk: https://bit.ly/2MlXDp2
Night to finish: https://bit.ly/2ATAuG0

Usual caveats:
I am a fan with a camera, not a skilled photographer
These are cropped and resized but otherwise unedited
I take a lot of photos: these are big albums

Wonder if the Park Place entry was due to them missing Petit. Good move if that was the case. Will cheer for them along with Keating/McNeil. Seems like a cool race to go to in person. With the overnight break you probably get to see more.

Another interesting cross-team alliance for the COTA 24 now. Just like Cooper MacNeil and Ben Keating teaming up. Now it appears that Trend Hindman (associated with Shank Acura) is joining the Park Place Porsche.

Still just 8 GT3 cars for the race. It appears there is a strong entry of American GT4 entries though between both Pilot Challenge and GT Challenge. https://www.24hseries.com/2019/24h-c...019/entry-list

Having less cars in the outright class is not always a bad thing as it makes for some interesting story lines with cars from smaller classes creeping into the Top 10 or even Top 5. And then: 8 cars for the top class isn't even all that bad, I don't think they had a lot more GT3s (and most of those were Mercedes SLSes) when I was covering the series for GT-Eins in 2015 and they had some excellent races back then.

GT3 teams have plenty of IMSA endurance races to enter, so it's not surprising.

A possible interesting format the series should consider for a single race in the future is one with no GT3 cars. Essentially where the overall winners will come from either SPX or 991.

Dubai 24 only made it to 8 hours before red flag, a night of biblical rain, a flooded track and an abandoned race.

So in the last year Iíve now been to a race in the desert lost to rain, a completely dry Le Mans and NŁrburgring 24, a Daytona 24 that didnít make it to 24 and a Spa 24 that rained for 18 hours and had a 5 hour red flag. 😂

So people are circulating a petition to ban you from races except to require you to attend Le Mans and Nurburgring?

My first Sebring last year was also the first wet one for years. My first WEC at Silverstone featured a hailstorm. There was also that snow at Spa WEC last May.

Who would've thought that a race in an area of the world that's mostly desert would have to be aborted due to heavy rain?

However, I can tell you in the SW US that even fairly small rainstorms can cause some pretty good flash flooding in the middle of a desert. Even bone dry soil can hold and absorb so much water at one time.

The rain overnight in Dubai was epic, monsoon level, for hour after hour. There was also a lot of road flooding, abandoned cars, entire roads closed. The modest drainage at the track had no chance. The whole pitlane was ankle deep. Parts of the track (which has a surprising amount of elevation change) became a small lake.

It’s a shame because it’s a nice event. Good track, relaxed atmosphere, pretty good access, great pizza. Slightly lacklustre entry list this year though. Mostly the three German marques in GT3, no Ferraris, no Brit cars (other than, oddly, a Lotus Exige), no random RS.01s or Corvettes. The most exotic specimen was a great-sounding, ugly-as-sin Vortex V8 which sadly broke after 33 laps.
