24H Dubai Resources


Last time, we looked at Dubai in the form of a Beginners Guide. Today it’s a little more specific.

How to Watch

Creventic stream all of the 24H Series live, for free. You can navigate to the official website, search on YouTube, or use the stream posted on tRL TV. All of the streams are the same, so it’s up to you how where you want to watch it.

Commentary is provided by Radio Show Limited, otherwise known as Radio Le Mans. For those unable to watch, RSL also provide audio coverage of the events they cover.

When to Watch

The race starts at 1400 local time on Friday the 12th of January and finishes at 1400 on Saturday 13th of January.

The United Arab Emirates is +4 GMT. The race begins local time at 2pm. That’s 10am UK, 11am for the majority of Europe. There’s very little flood lighting at the Dubai Autodrome, and the sun sets quite early. Expect a good 12 hours of darkness for this one!

Cars To Watch

Rather than go through every car individually, here’s a list of highlights for each class. Some are potential overall or class winners, whilst others are noteworthy entries. Being an Amateur focused series, the Creventic class structure is less rigid than other series.
