Moeen’s five in England’s big Test win
Shihab came second in heat one on Friday after a fourth-place in the first timed qualifier among the 15 competitors. A third-place followed in heat two to end Friday's session.
The next day, Shihab topped the timed qualifier but slipped to third in heat three before dropping to seventh in the next heat.
With dad Ahmed also serving as his kart-mechanic, Shihab got few changes done to his engine and results followed soon after, as he moved up to second in the intermediate classification ahead of final day's action.
In the pre-final, Shihab finished fourth but bounced back with a second-place finish in the final race of OKJ class, clocking the second-best lap time of 57.83 seconds in the 17-lap race.
Shihab finished 0.16 seconds behind Porter, who returned with a time of 16m:34.51s. Manchester, UK - Moeen Ali finished a brilliant campaign with a five-wicket haul as England beat South Africa by 177 runs in the fourth Test at Old Trafford on Monday to seal a 3-1 series win.
Victory, achieved with more than a day to spare, also saw Joe Root triumphant in his first Test series as England captain.
South Africa, set a huge 380 for victory, was bowled out for 202 shortly after tea on the fourth day when Moeen took two wickets in two balls to remove Morne Morkel and Duanne Olivier.
That gave the off-spinner a return of five for 69 in 19.5 overs and 25 wickets in total in a series where he also scored 252 runs.
This result meant England had won its first home Test series against South Africa since 1998.
It was also just South Africa's second defeat in 20 away Test series, its other overseas campaign reverse in that sequence coming against India in 2015-16.
South Africa, 43 for three at lunch, saw Hashim Amla (83) and captain Faf du Plessis (61) put on 123 for the fourth wicket after James Anderson, bowling from the newly-named James Anderson End, and Stuart Broad had made early inroads.
Moeen then took three wickets for five runs in 11 balls - including the prize scalp of Amla - as the Proteas collapsed from 163 for three to 173 for six.
Earlier, Moeen, both the man-of-the-match and the hosts man-of-the-series, made 75 not out off just 66 balls in England's second innings 243, having been dropped on 15.
