Cyndie Allemann to race at the 24 Hours of Dubai
The popular Swiss race car driver and media personality will take some time off her usual schedule with AMG and on TV to participate in the famous 24 Hours of Dubai on January 8-9-10.
Zürich, Switzerland – Cyndie was invited by Car Point S Racing Team to race on their Seat Leon Supercopa in the A3T class, with teammate Daniel Schmieglitz. The objective is a class win.
“I’m really looking forward to take part in this race. I'm already antsy and can't wait to get on track.”
I participated at the 24 Hours of Dubai in 2011 and I had a blast.
After the Le Mans and Nürburgring, as well as Dubai in 2011, this will be Cyndie's fourth 24-hour race in her career. “I participated at the 24 Hours of Dubai in 2011 and I had a blast. I have awesome memories of the event and the reception from the organization. This is the reason why I accepted the offer from Car Point S Racing Team without hesitation. I really want to thank them for the opportunity.”
Already preparing her 2015 racing season, Cyndie also considers this chance as the best way to start the new year: “It will be a good training for me to be in shape for the 2015 season, since I do want to compete in more races this year.”
In addition to Car Point S Racing Team, Cyndie will also be supported by MERBAGRETAIL.CH and LeasePlan Emirates. She will be on track at Dubai Autodrome on January 8 for practice and qualifying, and January 9 and 10 for the race.
