While it was in the running for the final victory, the Lamborghini Huracan GT3/Barwell Motorsport has just retired at the 19 hour mark.
Rik Breukers was then at the wheel of the Italian GT3 which experienced a mechanical problem. The Dutchman was accompanied by Mirko Bortolotti, Adrian Amstutz and Rolf Ineichen. Amstutz and Ineichen will therefore not achieve a second success in Dubai after that of 2014 in the Porsche 911 GT3 R/Stadler Motorsport.
The misfortune of some being the happiness of others, there are now three Mercedes-AMG GT3 behind the two Audi / WRT. The first four are held in four rounds.
