24h Series Dubai 2019


It will be the ninth time that the team Molitor-Racing-Systems will start at the 24h race in Dubai. But this time with the biggest challenge in the team history.

   
 



 

Believe it or not, with five racing cars the team from Lonsee will compete in this incredible hunt and behind the steering wheel of the four Porsche 991 GT3 Cup and the BMW M4 GT4, there will be drivers from in total 13 countries. Already last year, the MRS team reached with two out of three Porsche 991 Cup twice a second position in different classes in Dubai. Unfortunately, the third car had to give up after an accident just at the end of the race while being in a really good position.

 


This year, the MRS cars will participate in three different classes: the new BMW M4 GT4 will start in the GT4 category, the Porsche with the Brazilian driver line-up in the SPX class and the other three Porsche all together in the Porsche Cup class.



Strong driver line-ups in connection with top-prepared cars are the basis for this year's large success:
