Gulf 12 Hours Initial Invites Revealed

The initial list of invited GT3 and GT4 teams for the ninth edition of the Gulf 12 Hours later this year at Yas Marina has been revealed by the promotors.

Teams not included in the invitation lists can still apply to take part in the ‘Gulf 12 Hours’, though they will be placed on a waiting list.

Currently, the plan is to cap the grid at 34 cars to ensure that each team has its own fuel rig. The promotor has confirmed though, that it has received proposals from teams that are open to sharing garages and fuel rigs.

“We will be looking into each single requests and we remain open to accept some more cars if all the safety and quality standards are satisfied,” the promoter said.

The invitation lists for Cup and Prototype classes will be published later this month.

Teams who have unsuccessfully applied for an invitation to take part in the 9th ‘Gulf 12 Hours’ (taking place on 14 December this year) will be given a higher level of invitation priority for next year ‘Gulf 12 Hours’ in December 2020.
