Emi­rati Al Dha­heri earns an­other ‘vic­tory’ in Italy

Gutsy per­for­mance

Arab Times - - SPORTS -

ABU DHABI, May 24: Eight-yearold Emi­rati, Rashid Al Dha­heri con­tin­ues to fly the UAE flag high in one of the most com­pet­i­tive ju­nior se­ries’ in Italy tak­ing the top spot for a sec­ond week­end in a row in the Rookie Cat­e­gory of the 2016 Parolin Cham­pi­onkart se­ries. De­spite start­ing the fi­nal race in P7, Rashid put in a gutsy per­for­mance which saw him make his way through the field to claim top hon­our at Pista Rioveg­gio near Bol­gna, Italy, on Sun­day.

and putting Brady’s four-game sus­pen­sion back in the hands of the courts, the play­ers’ union asked all 13 judges of the 2nd US Cir­cuit Court of Ap­peals to hear the case that a three-judge panel de­cided in the league’s fa­vor.

In the ap­peal filed on Mon­day, Brady’s lawyers said that Com­mis­sioner Roger Good­ell’s “bi­ased, agenda-driven, and self-ap­prov­ing ‘ap­peal’ rul­ing must be va­cated.”

The 2-1 de­ci­sion by the panel, they wrote, “will fuel un­pre­dictabil­ity in la­bor ar­bi­tra­tions ev­ery­where and make la­bor ar­bi­tra­tion in­creas­ingly capri­cious and un­de­sir­able for em­ploy­ers and em­ploy­ees alike.”

The NFL did not im­me­di­ately re­spond to a re­quest for com­ment.

Brady was ini­tially sus­pended four games for what Good­ell said was an il­le­gal scheme to use im­prop­erly in­flated foot­balls in the 2015 AFC cham­pi­onship game.

In a gru­el­ing 3 days of rac­ing Rashid com­pleted over 40 ses­sions and around 250 kms, along­side 100 other driv­ers ad­mist con­stantly chang­ing track and weather con­di­tions. As a re­sult, qual­i­fy­ing on Sun­day proved to be a chal­lenge for the Abu Dhabi school­boy who had to set­tle for P9, al­beit only half a sec­ond adrift of the pole po­si­tion time — in­di­cat­ing just how close the field is in the Cham­pi­onkart se­ries. In the Pre-Fi­nal Al Dha­heri moved up three places to P6 at one point be­fore drop­ping back to P7 as a re­sult of a tech­ni­cal is­sue.Start­ing the Fi­nal in P7, Al Dha­heri put in an al­most flaw­less per­for­mance, stay­ing out of trou­ble while re­tain­ing a blis­ter­ing pace through­out. He fought his way to P3 over­all, in a tense and ex­cit­ing race, and with it claimed Rashid Al-Dha­heri lifts the tro­phy af­ter win­ning Rookie Cat­e­gory of the 2016 Parolin Cham­pi­onkartSe­ries in Italy.the top prize in the Rookie Cat­e­gory for a sec­ond suc­ces­sive week.Team man­ager and ex For­mula 3 cham­pion Fausto Ip­politi com­mented on Rashid’s race week­end: “It was not an easy race week­end for Rashid. It was a new track, with tricky weather con­di­tions which kept chang­ing from ses­sion to ses­sion; we also had a few tech­ni­cal is­sues on Sun­day morn­ing be­fore the fi­nal race. How­ever de­spite all th­ese chal­lenges Rashid kept cool through­out and de­liv­ered great per­for­mance.”
