ABU DHABI: Seven year-old UAE Karting sensation Rashid Al Dhaheri started his 2016 season in style, cruising to victory at the Dubai O-plate championship in the Bambino category, on Friday.

Just a week after winning the prestigious Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Creative Sports Award for ‘Local Young Athlete’, Rashid secured his first win of the season crushing the competition at the Dubai International O-plate for a third year in a row.

The day started well for Rashid who won the first two races of the day without any issues. But it was not all smooth sailing for young Rashid as he suffered from some engine trouble in Race’ 3 and 4 which severely affected his speed. Despite this Rashid still managed to take 3rd place in 3rd heat and out of top 10 in the 4th heats but securing enough points take the overall win.

“An excellent start to the season, it is always nice get a win on home turf and important to get to Rashid’s confidence up at the beginning of what will be a tough season. We are extremely proud of him; he now has an O-plate hat-trick winning all the Dubai O-plate championships since its inception in 2014,”  said Rashid’s Father, Dr Ali Al Dhaheri.

The challenge ramps up for Rashid’s in his next race in Italy in March where he will be competing in a higher age category for the first time.
