Oct 22nd 2010 – 24hrs Endurance, Dubai-For the second year in a row Fabienne was invited to race for the 24hr Endurance Kart Race at the Dubai Kartdrome in United Arab Emirates. She repeated her success by qualifying her team in pole position again, clinching it in the last lap.

Fabienne joined Team Tracktalk for this event which included local Emirati drivers, Sheikh Khalid Al Nahyan, Atef Al Barwani and Haytham Sultan Al Ali, as well as former F1 driver Enrico Bartaggia. In 36 deg heat Fabienne stood her ground as she battled it out for the lead in the early stages of the race against Batelco, Santos, OMD Racing and the Speedsters.

Fabienne held her second place and handed over to her team mate when disaster struck the team into the 90th minute when a severe mechanical failure on one of the wheels caused them to retire the kart for repairs, one of the drivers retired with minor injuries, already now the team were 3 laps down as they entered back into the race.
Holding the fastest lap of the race right up to the early morning hours, Fabienne and the team were unfortunately forced to retire early morning the next day as a few members were suffering injuries and Fabienne also took unwell with food poisoning. None the less, Fabienne did manage to achieve 2nd quickest lap time of the race overall..
