Another 24-hour challenge for Isaac Tutumlu in Dubai

Another 24-hour challenge for Isaac Tutumlu in Dubai

07.01.2015: Within days of starting this year, Isaac Tutumlu and Barzani Racing Team approach




Within days of starting this year, Isaac Tutumlu and Barzani Racing Team approach their first racing weekend of the season: the 24 hours of Dubai. The driver born in Barcelona will make his debut at Glorax Racing, a Swiss team entering a Ferrari 458 GT3 similar to that driven by Tutumlu in the Gulf 12 hours last December.


The 2015 season kicks off for Isaac Tutumlu very early and, for the second consecutive year, the Spaniard driver of Kurdish ancestry will take part in the 24 hours of Dubai, a race getting a greater prominence on the international endurance stage each year.


Taking place at the Dubai Autodrome and with no less than ninety-five cars entered, this race will see the debut of the Barzani Racing Team driver at the wheel of a Glorax Racing Ferrari 458 GT3.


Tutumlu competed in the Gulf 12 hours last December with another Ferrari, that fielded by Kessel Racing, and his debut with this perfect Italian machine was impressive as he was the fastest Ferrari driver in the second part of the Gulf 12 hours until his car suffered some mechanical issues and spending decisive time in the pits being fixed.


On this occasion Tutumlu will team up with Russia´s Andrey Birzhin Alexandrovich, Greece´s Dimitris Deverikos and two Italian racers, Rino Mastronardi and Gabriele Lancieri.


“I´m looking forward to racing, once again, in the 24 hours of Dubai after debuting last year. I would say a special thank you to Korek Telecom, because of its essential support to be able to race in Dubai with such a strong team like Glorax Racing.


Fairly certainly Korek Telecom will support my international racing program, to be announced soon, and it´s amazing to race with them in Dubai or Abu Dabi”, Tutumlu explains, remarking that “I approach this race with lots of enthusiasm. The Ferrari 458 GT3 is a perfect racing car for this sort of major endurance races, and it feels at home racing in a 24-hour event.


We had the opportunity to carry out a test day with the car previously and, besides, we tested on the tires to be used in Dubai. We gathered valuable information regarding tire wear. Glorax Racing is a very professional team, and they perfectly know the rulebook, slightly different to European GT3 specifications.


I know Dimitris pretty well, as we won races in the International GT Open racing together. He is a very solid driver. Gabriele and Rino are true very experienced and quick racers and Andrey has already driven a Porsche GT3”. As regards difficulties Tutumlu mentions that “taking into account there are 95 cars on the entry list, it´s mandatory to avoid mistakes, mainly with that high number of Gentlemen drivers.




It´s important to have a good race pace and, without mistakes, we will guarantee a good result”.


Free practice and qualifying session take place on Thursday. Then, on Friday, this race is due to start at 14.00 (local time).
