Dubai 24 hours 2013




•    Abdulaziz Turki AlFaisal : our aim to claim the victory

•    Faisal Binladen:  The race holds many challenges and means a lot for the team




The Saudi Falcons will tackle another challenge this year by contesting in the 8th Edition of the Dubai 24 hours race, which will take will start on Friday the 11th of January.


The team enters the competition after a lot of preparation and training, in order to improve its overall performance levels, and prepare for a race that holds many psychological, physical and mental challenges.


The Falcons will enter the race with 2 teams driving a BMW Z4 GT3 which is powered by a V8 4.4 liter engine, and generates 515 horse power at 8200 RPM. The car weighs only 1190 KG and this gives it an absolute power in acceleration. The first Falcon team will be led by HRH Abdulaziz Turki AlFaisal, Dirk Adorf, Dominik Baumann and Dominik Schwager.


The Second Falcon team will be led by HRH Abdulaziz Turki AlFaisal, Faisal Binladen, Dirk Müller, Jörg Müller and Claudia Hürtgen. This means both Saudi Falcon’s KSA drivers Abdulaziz Turki AlFaisal, Faisal Binladen, will drive both cars simultaneously.


Through this participation, the Falcons hope to claim the victory in this race. The Dubai 24 hours, is one of the most difficult and challenging races in the Middle East, due to its length and due to the high level of the competitors participating in it.


The fact that the race spans over 24 hours, makes it a huge challenge by itself, similar to the famous and legendary Le Mans Race. The race has a marketing dimension too, where it’s importance is emphasized with the participation of many car manufacturers, which have a huge history in motor sports and in 24 hour racing specifically.


The team though, takes the challenge with bravery and experience especially that Abdulaziz Turki AlFaisal holds good experiences in the race, where he won his category back in 2009 and came second overall, while he scored 2nd place in his category in 2010 and claimed 3rd overall.


“We are participating in the race during the winter break of the Porsche GT3 CCME race and other formats we participate in. Dubai 24 hours race comes as an opportunity to increase our success in different races, gain more experience me and the team and make our country proud yet again.


The race holds a lot of opportunities too since we will be facing tough competition from international and well known names in the sport. We are aiming for the win and alongside every single member of the team we will work hard to succeed” states Abdulaziz.


On the other hand and when asked about Dubai 24 hours, Faisal Binladen said
“The race will be one of the Falcon’s main events this year, alongside the Porsche GT3 CCME and other competitions. The team sees the race as an essential target for this season and we are looking for the win, which holds a lot of meanings for us and will come as a reward for all the hard work.


On the personal level the participation helps me regain my form after being away from the sport for a log while and I will work hard to make the best out of it. We all know how important and difficult the participation is especially with the presence of 85 teams and a big number of car manufacturers.


We hope that we can rise up to the occasion and with God’s will we can claim the at the beginning of he new year.”
