24 hours Dubai 2013


The 24 hours race in the desert came after accidents to an early finish for the MRS team




At the third participation in the 24 hours race in Dubai the MRS team had to give up the race for the first time after 12 hours. While during the qualifying everything went according to plan, except a little problem with the ABS, the team suffered the first setback after 1 ½ hours.


First the MRS McLaren reached a fifth position after an excellent pit stop, but a short time later the starting driver Andy Zuber informed per radio about a heavy accident. A supposed weaker car spun while breaking into the right rear suspension of the McLaren and caused such a heavy damage that the McLaren could not even reach the pit on his own power.


Just the recovery of the car lasted 30 minutes. After a repair of further 90 minutes the British racer was fit and could restart the race on the 76th position with the US American Rodin Younessi. Younessi handed the car over to the Japanese Kenji Kobayashi, who handed over to Florian Spengler. When Philipp Eng took over the cockpit from Spengler, the MRS McLaren was again on the 48th position.


The car went without problems after the repair. Eng should now try to catch up with a double stint and fast laps. First he succeeded very well, from time to time Eng surprised with the fastest lap times during the night. The catch-up race ceased abruptly at about 2 o’clock in the morning, when once again Eng was hit heavily from a slower car and thereby spun into a third car. Finally this damage was too violent, that a repair again was completely hopeless.


Philipp Eng:
„It is really a pity what happened. We were again on position 42 with good chances to get forward and then something like this happened. Out of nowhere a slower car spun into mine and pushed me into another car. I had no chance to avoid it.


That we were involved twice into accidents completely through no fault of our own is really bad luck and in this case it shoots the hard work of the last days down. I am sorry for everybody, for this reason I hope that we exhausted our bad luck for this season.”


Karsten Molitor:
„Of course we are really disappointed about what happened. Unfortunately in this big starting field there were some drivers with slower cars, who were overstrained in the traffic. We invested much work and effort in this race. But this is motor sports, sometimes very cruel.


However Dubai was a great experience for all participants, we had a big pleasure to work with great drivers. At this point a big thank you to the whole team, who did an amazing job tirelessly, so that the McLaren was again ready for action. Also thank you to the drivers, who took a huge arrival on their own, Japan and Florida are not just around the corner.


On the part of McLaren GT we get a lot of support as well, the car was really sensationally good and clicked like clockwork. We will come back, for sure!”
