Abu Dhabi: Rashid Al Dhaheri, the UAE’s most exciting young karting star, got his UAE Karting season off to a flying start as he powered to victory in Round One of the X30 Challenge UAE at RAK Track last weekend with a determined display against a strong line-up of drivers in the Cadet Class.

In Heat 1, Dhaheri dropped down to fifth at one stage before recovering to finish third. In the pre-final, again he found himself down in fifth before fighting his way back to finish in second place.

In a hot and humid final, it was a similar story again as Dhaheri dropped down the order to fifth after going off his racing line to avoid a collision.

Undeterred by this setback he chased down the pack. Late in the race he took second place with the leader a mere 2.6 seconds ahead.

In a thrilling final lap, Dhaheri held his nerve and skillfully overtook the leader to win a well-earned victory.

On his way to victory, Dhaheri also notched up the fastest lap time ever recorded in the cadet class on this track configuration.
