The dignitary group was followed by the Hanook 24H Dubai competitors, a striking mix of high-performance GTs, Touring Cars and 24H Dubai specials.  Visitors were treated to race car spectacle on the quiet roads of MotorCity that is normally reserved for the race track.  Drivers were on hand to meet with fans, sign autographs and pose for photographs.
