Tom Onslow-Cole to race Dubai 24 Hours for RAM Racing
British professional racing driver Tom Onslow-Cole will contest Dubai 24 Hours, the 24H Series season-opener, on 9 January 2015 with European Le Mans Series GTE championship-winners, RAM Racing, in the team’s new Mercedes SLS AMG GT3.
Onslow-Cole, who has already tested the V8-machine at Silverstone, flew to Dubai in mid-December to put it through its paces on the 5.3km long Dubai Autodrome, alongside team owner and fellow racing driver Cheerag Arya (IN). Dubai 24 Hours was the first twice-around-the-clock endurance race that Onslow-Cole contested but now the 27-year old can add Spa 24 Hours and Barcelona 24 Hours to that ever-growing list. The Dubai International Autodrome has hosted the 24-hour endurance race since 2006. The race sees GT and touring cars battle it out in 12 different classes, with the GT3s aiming for the overall race win.
Onslow-Cole will drive the RAM Racing Mercedes SLS alongside Arya, Adam Christodoulou (GB) and Thomas Jäger (DE). The Dubai 24 Hours starts at 1400hrs local time on 9 January 2015.
