Championship-winning driver Rebecca Jackson will compete alongside former British Touring Car driver Chris James at the 24h Dubai race in January.

They’ll be driving for Sorg Rennsport and will share a BMW M235i at the race which begins on Friday 15th January 2016. Testing will take place on Wednesday and Thursday with qualifying on Thursday afternoon.

Rebecca said: “I’m really looking forward to taking part in such a respected 24-hour race in the motorsport calendar. It’s the perfect warm up to Le Mans.”

Chris, who raced in the British Touring Car Championship with Team ES Racing in 2011 and 2012 as driver and team principal sees 24h Dubai as the beginning of a very exciting year. He said: “I can’t wait to reinvigorate Team ES Racing and going to Dubai is a great way to kick off my race season.”
