Al Faisal Comes First Bahrain’s Sakhir Circuit.

Al-Faisal Al-Zubair drew the curtain on a second successive victorious campaign on the Porsche BWT GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East with second place in a dramatic last race of the season at Bahrain’s Sakhir circuit.

Al-Zubair managed to lead until well over half distance after a great pass on polesitter and Porsche GT3 champion of the United Kingdom, Tio Ellinas. However, an accident involving the Bahraini driver Sheikh Isa bin Abdullah Al-Khalifa and South Africa’s Saul Hack forced a yellow flag situation. They came together at turn one and debris was scattered on the track. The safety car was deployed while the debris was removed and the green flag was raised for action to resume on the ninth of 10 laps.

Al-Zubair’s second consecutive Middle East championship is the first in the 10-year history of the prestigious series. Al Zubair’s tally of 8 wins, 7 pole positions, 10 fastest laps and 13 podiums, drew praise from the Porsche BWT GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East founder and organiser, Walter Lechner of Lechner Racing, “Al Zubair is a true example of the talent that exists in the Middle East. Having first joined the series in 2016, his improvement is outstanding. Three years on, Al Faisal is now a double champion and has raced in Europe against the best Porsche GT3 Cup drivers.
