DUBAI // This weekend's 24 Hours of Dubai marks the eighth successive year the race has been held and Mohammed ben Sulayem, the president of the UAE Automobile and Touring Club, says it has grown in such a way that it is now second only to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in terms of prestige.

"When it was first done in 2006, it was great to see so much interest, but I remember saying 'I hope it's sustainable'," Ben Sulayem, said yesterday at Dubai Autodrome. "Now when I see it sustaining and growing – and in a healthy way, because you do not want to see a boom and then nothing afterwards – it proves to me the event is something of real quality."

24 Hours event is 'jewel of motorsport in Dubai'
