NEW SEASON GETS UNDER WAY IN AL AIN
The UAE’s karting season got off to a flying start over the weekend when the Rotax Invitational was held at Al Ain Raceway. For the first time this season, racers from across the country came together to get their hands on some much wanted silverware ahead of the UAE Rotax MAX Challenge, which starts next weekend. Some of the closest and most exciting racing of the day came from the Micro MAX drivers. Mini motorsport celebrity Rashid Al Dhaheri - known as ‘Little Alonso’ was able to put his kart on pole position in qualifying, hugely impressive on his first Micro MAX outing. After an intense battle, Finn Farrell-Morton finished in first place just 0.005 second in front of his rivals. Georgie Zouein claimed second place with Al Dhaheri taking an impressive third. In the MAX class it was Jakob Robinson who stormed to victory, with Emirati female Amna Al Qubaisi finishing just behind in second.
