Racing in the Dubai 24 Hours

Well, Im certainly not alien toendurance events, having set a - - Guinness World Record with RAC and Audilast year when Andrew Frankel and I embarked on a virtually non-stop28-hour road trip across Europe on just one tank of fuel. Ive alsonavigated for Tiff Needell on the Exeter Trials in a 24-hour eventwith no time to rest, and on the presenting side was part of a teamdoing a live 25-hour broadcast for Nismo TV at Le Mans in 2013.Other experience will come in useful, too. Even if you have a lot of other priorities for instance, sports, extracurricular activities, etc., still you need to complete a senior project to graduate successfullyFor example, afteruniversity and before setting up my car sales firm, I worked as an airhostess for British Airways. We stayed awake all night on nightflights serving all the passengers, not to mention having to be alertin case there was an emergency to deal with (never underestimate theamount of work these people put in). Plus more recently Ive spend alot of time in Strakkas simulator, both at day and night, achievingtimes within tenths of pole from last year.The car Im driving in Dubai is a 2014 factory built - BMW - M235i race carwith 333bhp and paddle-shift gear changes.It is being run by Sorg Rennsport, a German team with much successunder its belt, taking class wins at the Nurburgring 24 Hour in 2015and the 24h Paul Ricard.In total our car will have five drivers, including Chris James ofTeam ES Racing, who is also team principal and has finished on thepodium in British Touring Cars. He is more than capable of lapping ourBMW - similar spec to a touring car - around the Dubai circuit withexcellent pace.You can see how we get on in the livestream, taken from our car, attop of this page ,or tune into Motors TV for full race coverage.For all the latest news, advice and reviews from Telegraph Cars,sign up to our weekly newsletter by entering your email - here - - A-Z car finder - More motorsport stories - RebeccaJackson: Project Le Mans - - best search sites -
