LIVE STREAMING. The new 3x3H Proto Series for Le Mans-style LMP3 prototypes makes its ‘trial event’ debut ahead of this weekend’s Dubai 24 Hours.
Turns out you REALLY don’t know what you can get until you ask for it. This was the situation teams and drivers alike found at the back end of 2016 when 24H Series organisers Creventic announced a brand new support series for its flagship endurance events for 2017 onwards, the inaugural ‘trial event’ for which takes place this week ahead of the 2016 Dubai 24 Hours.
The new 3x3H Proto series came about following requests from multiple outfits to race Le Mans-style prototypes during the Dubai 24 Hrs, and while the series organisers were keen to restrict the event to GT and Touring Cars, they weren’t keen to show their adoring racing public the door either.
Aimed primarily at gentlemen drivers, the newly formed 3x3H Proto series is open to LMP3 cars, Group CN machinery and ‘special prototypes of similar performance’, and features from notable names Wolf, Radical, Ligier and Ginetta among others across four categories. This week’s triple-header of 3-hour races marks both the first time a prototype has raced under the 24H banner at the Dubai Autodrome and is the first of five such race weekends to take place this year, the other being at Magny-Cours, Misano, Paul Ricard and Spa-Francorchamps.
