The tenth running of the Dubai 24 Hours was the opening event for the International Endurance Series (24H Series) this weekend. The massive entry list included one Audi team who fielded an Audi R8 V8 race car.
The Audi was entered by Red Camel Racing, a regular entrant in the 24H Series. It is one of the two privately built Creventic Audi R8 V8 race cars, which are also known as “CR-8”. These Audis were built by Creventic and the first one debuted at the 2008 24 Hours of Dubai. Red Camel Racing later acquired one of the cars and has been competing with it for a number of years.
The #159 Red Camel - Jordans.nl entry was driven by Rik Breukers, Ivo Breukers, Tommy Lindroth and Tarek Elgammal.
