The Car Collection Motorsport Audi wins

Dubai 24 Hours

The Car Collection Motorsport Audi R8 LMS of Dimitri Parhofer, Christopher Haase, Frederic Vervisch, and Rik Breukers won the Dubai 24 Hours.

The quartet fended off the WRT entry driven by Mohammed Saud Fahad Al Saud, Michael Vergers, Christopher Mies, and Dries Vanthoor, to take out the event by a lap.

An Australian entry for Dean Koutsoumidis, Glen Wood, and James Winslow failed to reach the flag in the KTM X-Bow they shared, retiring before the eight hour mark.

Countryman Aaron Cameron steered an Audi RS3 TCR but was also not classified after the car he was sharing crash out, nor was the BMW M4 which had Gerard McLeod among its roster.
