Gulf News - - Uae/Internatio­nal -

Rashid Al Da­heri won the cadet class (for 8-12-year-olds) of the first IAME X30 UAE Cham­pi­onship race at Dubai Kartdrome on Fri­day.

The Emi­rati young­ster cov­ered 200-km in test­ing and qual­i­fied in sec­ond. In heat one he took the lead and crossed the line 7.3 sec­onds ahead of the nextplaced karter, set­ting the fastest lap along the way. He did the same in the pre­fi­nal and fi­nal, set­ting the fastest laps in both races and fin­ish­ing 5.5 sec­onds ahead of his near­est ri­val in the fi­nal.

Team man­ager Fausto Ip­politi from Italy said: “It was not an easy race day for Rashid, who was the youngest driver in the field and even though he started on the out­side in heat one, he put in an al­most flaw­less per­for­mance, tak­ing an early lead and stay­ing there un­til the end.”
