The 'Gulf 12 Hours' is a glamorous endurance race - 7th edition in Abu Dhabi. Kessel Racing successfully defended their Gulf 12 Hours title after Michael Broniszewski, Giacomo Piccini and Davide Rigon finished one minute 15 seconds ahead of local team Dragon Racing after 12 hours of racing. Starting from pole position, the number 11 Ferrari led from the opening lap and held off strong competition from the two remaining class competitors including GP Extreme’s Renault RS01. Fourth place went to AF Corse in the 488 GT3 which subsequently gave them the PRO AM class win and completed 300 laps as they crossed the chequered flag.

In the GTX class, Scuderia Villorba Corse took the chequered flag ahead of Dragon Racing and Brookspeed. This year the event welcomed a new category in the guise of the PROTO class, allowing the Ligier JS P3 to compete at the circuit for the first time. The competitors in this class were spread throughout the 25-strong field and it was Graff who took the win four laps ahead of United Auto sport. Unforgettable experience...
