The Saudi Falcons, led by Red Bull athlete Prince Abdulaziz Turki Al-Faisal (AFT) retired from 24H Dubai 2013 after enduring unexpected mechanical problems. This was the the first circuit endurance race of the new season that took place at the 5.39km Dubai Autodrome circuit over the weekend.
The team ran smoothly through out the weekend and through the first couple hours of the race. The Falcons’ car number 12 was hit from behind and got compromised before it retird due to an unsual mechanical failure; manifold breakdown. The car retired just before midnight as the other car lead by ATF stayed in the top 3 until the early morning. ATF and the Falcons’ were set for a podium finish, but the car had a failer in the oil pump and this resulted in the retirement of the car.
ATF and the team displayed amazing performance before the retirement and the team as a whole showed amazing strenght, depth and Focus. ATF would like to thank all the supporters and the fans for simply being amazing. ATF would also like to thank team Schubert Motorsport, for their dedication, professionalism and hard work.
The prince promised the fans that he and the team will come back stronger.
