Live from the Dubai 24 Hour Part IV
The twilight racing hours are upon us...

Samir Sharma is a curious specimen. He's a race marshal we found huddled around a tea urn on a frozen turn 14 at 4:00am. After asking if he'd rather not be doing something - anything - else, he paused for a few careful seconds and replied: "No. This is perfect."
He's been part of the army of eyes recruited (for no pay) to oversee proceedings at the D24 for the past three years: "Every time you come to this race you watch the drivers again and again and learn how to control a car safely. This is the most useful information you can have as a driver."
Coming back next year? "Of course."
