S2000 Wins Class, Places 5th Overall in Dubai 24 Hour

By -

The First Toyo Tires Dubai 24 hours is won by Austrian Duller Motorsport in the Red Bull BMW M3 E46 GTR. After a cautious start from their pole position the team took the lead at the end of the first hour and lost it only in the fourth hour due to a mechanical problem. After the problem was fixed it didn’t took long before they regained the lead until the finish. 

Among the other teams in the huge 67-car field who could get close to the eventual winners were German CM Creativ Marketing-drivers Martin Dechent, Jurgen Bender and Lars Nielsen. The Porsche-driver took advantage of the technical mishap of the winners during the fourth hour and took the lead for a few laps, but had to make way as the Duller-car rolled again.

German Maeder Motorsport won the up to two liter class in a Honda S2000. After the retirement of the Schubert Motors 2 ETCC-BMW 320i, they dominated the class and finished eventually in a fine fifth place overall despite a late challenge from the other Schubert 320i who finished second in the biggest A2-class.
