DUBAI: Rashid Al Dhaheri, well known in the UAE as Little Alonso, clearly enjoys racing at Dubai Kartdrome as on Friday (14 March) he once again shone bright, scoring a hat-trick of wins in the Bambino class during the prestigious O-Plate Race Day at the venue.

On a challenging day for drivers, with strong winds blowing and a slippery track due to dust, the young Emirati racing prodigy was the class of the Bambino field, as the day progressed Dhaheri simply got faster and faster. In the first Time Trial his best lap was 1:21.715 which was over two seconds up on his closest rival. An hour later, in Time Trial 2 he went around in 1:18.971 which was nearly three seconds faster than the next best, and in the final Time Trial he went even quicker with a best lap of 1:17.867.

With the three wins on the day he did enough to take home the winner’s trophy for his efforts, adding the Dubai Kartdrome Bambino O-Plate Championship title to his portfolio.

With the three wins on Friday, combined with the two wins he scored at the Kartdrome in January, young Dhaheri has extended his winning streak in Dubai to five wins out of five.
