Indian driver Karun Chandhok secured a third-place finish in the SP2 class at the Dubai 24 hours that finished on Saturday.
Chandhok, driving the Dubai 24 hours for the second time in his career, drove for the Nissan GT Academy Team RJN.
He joined Nissan GT Academy winners James Moffat, Tor Graves, and Ashley Oldfield.
“This is a great start to the year for me. It was a crazy race and at one point we looked fast enough for the win.
“We didn’t get our share of the luck but we fought back and took a podium finish,” added Chandhok.
