Dubai 1981

Back in 1981, 4th December to be exact, Brummie promotor Martin Hone organised a race meeting in Dubai which included an all-star race for identical Citroen CXes. The race was won by Bruno Giacomelli with Mark Surer second - both were current F1 drivers at the time - with another young charger David Kennedy in third place. Fourth place went to, you've guessed it, a 51 year old Innes Ireland heading the likes of Watson and Tambay as well as fellow old timers Gurney, Moss, Salvadori, Brabham, Salvadori, Bell and Phil Hill. Forza Innes!
