The first round of the 2013 Dubai Kartdrome Endurance Championship driven by MINI takes place at the karting venue, on March 15 and 16. This edition is a twelve-hour race which starts at 2pm on Friday and ends at 02:00 the following morning.
A host of new teams will be on the grid Friday, but the one which has grabbed attention is the CG Pro team led by former world karting champion and FIA GT champion David Terrien partnered with Alban Varruti, the Azzam brothers Rami and Ramez and ace junior karter Piers Pakenham-Walsh.
They face severe pressure from a host of teams also targeting the big prize. The all Emirati Dubai Falcons Racing team will once again be led by Sheikh Hasher Al Maktoum with Saeed Al Mehairi and Mohammed Al Mutawaa on duty for a squad who know their way around the Kartdrome and were always the ready to challenge Batelco's dominance.
On track action on Friday starts at 11.40 am with Free Practice, followed by Qualifying at 12.55 pm, with the UAE national flag set to wave off the field at 14.00 pm. At 2.00 am on Saturday morning the chequered flag will drop to bring the race to an end. – The Gulf Today
