Provisional Invitation List For Gulf 12 Hours

38 Cars, now formal entries awaited!

The organisers of the Gulf 12 Hours have reveled their 38 car invitation list for the 10th edition of the race which returns to Yas Marina Circuit this year on 8 January 2022.

The provisional list of 27 GT3 cars and 11 GT4 machines invited to attend reflects the organisers discussions with interested teams and includes twenty teams representing seven different manufacturers including two Mercedes-AMG cars for 2021 Gulf 12 Hours Bahrain winners 2 Seas Motorsport. Mercedes is also planned to be raced by the Akka ASP, RAM Racing and SPS Automotive squads.

Ferrari looks again to be represented in good numbers with long-time Gulf 12 Hours supporters Kessel Racing planning a three-car entry along with two further cars from AF Corse, and single entries from Baron Motorsport and NLS regulars Racing One.

Attempto Racing, winners of the 2019 Gulf 12 Hours, has been invited to enter two Audi R8 LMS cars with further single entries from Car Collection Motorsport and Balfe Motorsport.

Dinamic Motorsport, Monlau Motorsport and MRS Molitor Racing have all been invited to enter a single Porsche each, with Lamborghini also represented by Barwell Motorsport, LP Racing and SVC Sport Management with Aaron Scott’s Scott Sport outfit also on the list with a first contemporary GT entry for the squad.

The GT3 invitation list is rounded out with two entries for the McLaren 720S GT3, from British teams Optimum Motorsport and JOTA Sport respectfully, and a single entry for BMW by Belgian team Boutsen Ginion Racing.

Andrea Ficarelli, director of race promoter Driving Force Events, said: “This invitation list once again demonstrates how attractive the Gulf 12 Hours is to teams and drivers. We are well aware that not all team projects will be converted into entries within the final list. For this reason, we have made invitations in excess of the 34 entries available. Gulf 12 Hours will always remain as an exclusive event, with only one car allocated per garage.”

A final entry list, including a number of Lamborghini Super Trofeo cars that are yet to be invited, is planned to be published by the end of August 2021.
