Barwell Motorsport is returning to the Creventic 24H Series Dubai 24 Hours event in 2022, with a high-quality Pro car which is set to challenge for the outright victory. During our last time at the event in 2020 our Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo led for three hours, before the race was stopped and red-flagged after only seven hours due to a torrential rain storm which flooded the whole circuit. Hoping to secure victory in the classic middle-eastern event will be an extremely competitive driver line-up which includes Adrian Amstutz, Rolf Ineichen, Rik Breukers and Lamborghini factory star, Mirko Bortolotti. The team’s car is set to run in its stunning Black Bull livery, thanks to their continued sponsorship, and will also be supported in the Dubai event by Amstutz Produkte and Bio-Circle.
This exact same line up finished fourth in the 2021 event, and prior to that Breukers was part of the winning crew in 2019 whilst Ineichen and Bortolotti were in the third-placed car in 2018. Barwell Motorsport and Amstutz also have a Creventic 24-Hour outright race winning history, having been victorious together in the 2019 Barcelona 24 Hours. So the drivers and team as a combination have an extremely strong pedigree to try and secure the first Dubai win for both Barwell and Lamborghini next January.
Mark Lemmer, Barwell Team Principal: “We are hugely excited about our 2022 Dubai prospects, we know the car goes well there and the driver line-up is very strong and proven. Adrian is already a long-standing successful part of the Barwell family of course, Rik has driven for us before at the Spa 24 Hours and claimed a Silver Cup podium, and it’s great to welcome Rolf and Mirko to the team. Bortolotti is a Lamborghini legend and it will be very exciting to see what he can do in a Barwell car.”
Adrian Amstutz: “Dubai is one of my favourite events of the year and it will be great to do it again with Barwell, Rolf, Mirko and Rik. This will be the first time we will have all of these fantastic team and driver ingredients mixed together, and so I am really excited that hopefully it will give me the opportunity to get on the top step of the Dubai podium!”
Rolf Ineichen: “Mirko and I have come very close to winning Dubai before, so hopefully 2022 will be our year! Looking forward to racing with Adrian and Rik again, and joining Barwell for the first time. I’m sure that together we will have a really good chance of victory in this great event.”
Mirko Bortolotti: “Can’t wait to join Barwell Motorsport for the Dubai 24! The Team has an important history with the Brand and is part of the Lamborghini family since the beginning of the Huracán GT3 project. It’s fantastic to finally get the opportunity to work together as well as to share the car with Adrian, Rolf and Rik in Dubai again!”
Rik Breukers: “I am very much looking forward to this race, the 24H Dubai is really one of the best races of the year. Happy to drive again with Mirko and Rolf as we have had great success in the past when we drove together. Let’s try and have another success in Dubai!”
