7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

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.
