Black Falcon leads the way in the Hankook 24 Hours of Dubai after one hour of racing at the Dubai Autodrome.

Yelmer Buurman in the No. 2 Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 took the lead just before the one-hour mark, catching the pole-sitting No. 12 Fach Auto Tech Porsche 997 GT3 R.

Ragginger lost another position to V8 Racing’s Nicky Pastorelli at the one-hour mark, as Hofor Racing’s Kenneth Heyer hit the barrier with his Mercedes.

Only a couple of minutes after the start of the race, the first Code 60 (full-course caution) was called, as the No. 167 Nova Race Ginetta G50 GT4 stopped on track. The Code 60 lasted over 20 minutes due to oil spilt on track.

Other class leaders include the No. 88 Dragon Racing Ferrari (A6-Am), No. 26 Black Falcon Porsche (997) and Optimum Motorsport Ginetta (SP3).
