Sainteloc Racing topped the timesheets in Night Practice on Thursday evening, the final full-length practice session ahead of the Hankook 24 Hours of Dubai. 

Simon Gachet posted a best lap time of 1:59.234 in his No. 26 Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo, running in the A6-Am class, which he shares with Christian Kelders, Pierre-Yves Paque, Daniel Desbrueres and Nyls Stievenart.

He was followed by the Grasser Racing Team Lamborghini Huracan GT3 which secured pole for the race in qualifying earlier in the day.

Cars from WRT, KCMG and Target Racing completed the top five overall.

Jordan Witt took the Cicely Motorsport Mercedes-AMG GT4 to the GT4 class lead after the British team also scored class pole.

The 90-minute night-time session was put under Code 60 twice, after separate incidents for the Autorama Motorsport by Wolf-Power Racing Volkswagen Golf GTi TCR DSG and Vortex V8.

The Hankook 24 Hours of Dubai will get underway at 3 p.m. local time on Friday.
