Red team wins Dubai’s 4 hours

Red team wins Dubai’s 4 hours

07 February 2019

The final act of both the TCR Middle East series and the 24H Middle East championship was a 4-hour race at Dubai.
The Red CUPRA that Luc and Ivo Breukers shared with Yusif Bassil took a comfortable victory after emerging from a close fight with the Zengő Motorsport CUPRA of Tamás Horvath and Gábor Kismarty-Lechner that lasted for the first hour of the race. This result also meant that the young Luc Breukers grabbed the inaugural title of the 24H Middle East championship.
During the first hour the Red car chased the Zengő Motorsport’s #10, then took the lead and began to create a gap. The pace of the orange CUPRA was very consistent and after mid race its leading margin was up to several laps as both the Zengő Motorsport cars suffered from fuel feeding issues.
Eventually the father-and-son Breukers duo and Bassil completed 103 laps of the Dubai Autodrome, while the two Zengő Motorsport cars finished second (Horváth and Kismarty-Lechner) and third (Zoltán Zengő-Csába Tóth) with gaps of 13 and 20 laps respectively.
René Münnich, freshly-crowned TCR Middle East champion, took the start in the race but completed 32 laps only.
