Tar­get to sup­port Soomar in Oman and re­gional meets

Oman Daily Observer - - LOCAL -

MUS­CAT: For the fourth con­sec­u­tive sea­son, Oman rally driver Khalid Soomar will get the sup­port from Tar­get Co to par­tic­i­pate in lo­cal and re­gional cham­pi­onships.

This has been made pos­si­ble be­cause of the good re­la­tions be­tween two par­ties since Tar­get has been sup­port­ing ral­ly­ing since al­most 5 years.

Af­ter con­firm­ing the sup­port and spon­sor­ship, MR Yousef Sham­mas, the Gen­eral Man­ager and mem­ber board of Tar­get LLC, men­tioned that this is not the first sea­son the com­pany has sup­ported these kind of ac­tiv­i­ties.

The re­la­tion­ship be­tween the Rally Cham­pion Khalid Soomar and the com­pany Tar­get have had good re­la­tions since the last four years.

Hence the com­pany de­cided to sup­port Khalid. ‘‘We are glad in Tar­get to con­tinue sup­port­ing Khalid this year also as part of our CSR re­spon­si­bil­ity within the Sul­tanate, he is a good driver and look­ing for­ward to win, so all com­pa­nies should sup­port lo­cal tal­ents not just in sport but in dif­fer­ent fields,’’ Tariq Sham­mas, DGM, for sup­port ser­vices in Tar­get, said.

“He added that we pre­vi­ously Tariq sup­ported many ini­tia­tives as part of the so­cial pro­grammes and we do the same now, and in case of Khalid Soomar, we are with him since three years spon­sor­ing his par­tic­i­pa­tions in the rally world and we were sup­port­ing his brother Khalil be­fore that for two sea­sons and happy for that,’’ he added.

A very de­lighted Khalid Soomar said, ‘‘I re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate the sup­port I got from Tar­get this sea­son, many thanks for MR Yousef and Eng Tareq Sham­mas for their help which makes me to take a part in lo­cal cham­pi­onships as it is very dif­fi­cult to score good re­sults without sup­port.”

He added, ‘‘you need a lot of money to pre­pare the car to be best fit for the com­pe­ti­tion. There­fore Tar­get al­ways backs me in this cham­pi­onship, but still the cost is too high to cover and we look for­ward for more sup­port from dif­fer­ent com­pa­nies.”
