Abdulaziz Al Faisal clinches Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East



DOHA // Abdulaziz Al Faisal, the Saudi Arabian driver, won the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East for the second in time three years late on Saturday at Qatar's Losail International Circuit.

His second place behind Clemens Schmid, the Austrian racer, in Round 10 of the 12-round championship was enough to give him the outright drivers' title after his closest challenger, fellow Saudi Bandar Alesayi, went out of the race at the start of the first lap.

Oman's Ahmad Al Harthy claimed the third podium position while for the second time in 24 hours Qatar was able to celebrate a double success.

Just as they had done in Round 9 the previous evening, Saadon Al Kuwari topped the intermediate class Michelin Silver Trophy while fellow countryman Abdul Rahman Al Thani took victory in the bronze category Mobil 1 Trophy, the two Qataris finishing fifth and eighth overall respectively.
