24H race in Dubai, powered by Hankook, 12-14 January 2017
We were honoured to be the main sponsors for racing driver Carsten Tilke, driving for the team HTP Motor Sport, Mercedes Benz AMG GTS, at the Hankook 24H in Dubai. The team drivers were also Bernd Schneider, 5 times champion in the DTM Championship.
One of the main sponsors of the team were energy drink company HYPE, who are also the main sponsor of Formula 1 team Force India.
The race runs through the night and finishes at 2pm on Saturday (14 January). We walked the grid ahead of the 2pm start time, taking in the race build-up, glamour of one of the UAE's biggest motorsport events and seeing the drivers get ready to race.
