The 2022 Gulf Historic Dubai Grand Prix Revival (GHDGPR) will play host to a wonderful array of motorsport icons with the very first racing cars already confirmed.
 



Over one hundred of the world’s most celebrated racing cars set to line up on the grid for the second event this winter with the very first cars now confirmed over 200 days before the start lights go out.
 




1986 Rothmans Porsche 962

The spectacular 1986 Rothmans Porsche 962 is set to grace the grid at this year’s event. With a rich heritage, the car is no stranger to pushing boundaries and winning sports car races. At the hands of 1994 Le Mans champ Mauro Baldi and F1 Driver Jonathan Palmer, this very special 962 won the 1987 Norisring ‘Money Race’ making it the first privately owned Group C car to win a race that season.

Later that year, Palmer pushed the 962 to set a new sports car lap record at the Circuit of Spa-Francorchamps. A car with a pedigree for success, 1989 Le-Mans champion Jochen Mass piloted the 962 to victory in the 1987 Kyalami 500 exhibition race.
 




2006 Aston Martin DBR9 007


The road going Aston Martin DB9, featured in the renowned 2006 James Bond film, Casino Royale. A stripped-down, GT version of the car – the DBR9 – was a force to be reckoned with on the racetrack.

 

 

Weighing over a ton less and boasting three hundred more horsepower than its production counterpart, the Aston Martin DBR9 will take pride of place at the Dubai Autodrome this November.

 

Numbered 007 and paying homage to Bond, the 2006 Aston Martin DBR9’s sister car 009 went on to win two GT1 class wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans by the factory Aston Martin Racing team.
 




1974 Shadow DN3



Keep your eyes peeled for the 1974 Shadow DN3, which will race in the 1970s category of F1 cars at GHDGPR. This matte black monster is powered by the iconic Cosworth DFV power plant, a naturally aspirated V8 designed by legend Kevin Duckworth.

 

Driven by Jean-Pierre Jarier, it finished on the podium at both the 1974 Monaco Grand Prix and the International Trophy at Silverstone.
 



1991 Ferrari 643



The Ferrari 643 competed in the 1991 F1 season. Powered by a loud, naturally aspirated V12, this thoroughbred Prancing Horse racer was raced by four-time F1 champion Alain Prost and is gearing up for the Duel in the Desert.

‘The Professor’ held the record for the highest number of Grands Prix victories, until being beaten by F1 legend Michael Schumacher in 2001.
 



Pierre-Brice Mena, Managing Director of GP Extreme  
 
                                        
“This year's event is set to host so many different aspects of top tier motorsport, from endurance sports cars through to F1. Seven months out, we already have some great motorsport content confirmed with plenty more to come.
 


“We are establishing a unique lifestyle and sports event to add to a bustling and exciting period for the region at the end of this year and we will ensure that there is something for everyone at the 2022 Gulf Historic Dubai Grand Prix Revival.”

 

The event will take place at the 5.4km-long Dubai Autodrome, which has hosted rounds of the FIA GT Championship, European Touring Car Championship, A1 Grand Prix and GP2 Asia Series since 2004.
 


The immersive weekend is set to include activities for all the family, including music, a classic car concours, a bicycle race around the track for competing drivers, and a gala dinner.
