TRI­UMPHANT JONES RE­TURNS TO DUBAI

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

It was a spe­cial night of Sodi World Se­ries Sprint Rac­ing at the Dubai Kart­drome on Mon­day when mul­ti­ple UAE kart cham­pion Ed Jones re­turned to his home track. Fresh from his 2016 Indy Lights Cham­pi­onship vic­tory in Amer­ica, Jones re­turned to Dubai to hand out tro­phies to the ju­niors then suited up to com­pete in the highly com­pet­i­tive se­nior cat­e­gory. The 21-year-old showed he had lost none of his edge in a kart, cut­ting through the field from sixth place on the grid to take vic­tory by 0.238 sec­onds. In the sec­ond race it was Hus­sain Umid Ali who tri­umphed and took top hon­ours on the night, just pip­ping Jones, who took sec­ond place over­all.
