Cregan roars to Dubai win

Robert Cregan, driving a Maserati GranTurismo MC, won the third round in Class C of the Cytech UAE GT Championships yesterday.

After the qualifying session held at the Dubai Autodrome, Cregan began the race from third on the grid but quickly moved into the lead and stayed there until the end of the race.

"Robert did well since the race was held on the National Course which favours the lighter cars," said Barry Hope, Cregan's team manager.
