Amna gives Daman Speed Academy two podiums

UAE Rotax Max Challenge Round 2-3

Amna Al Qubaisi kept the Daman Speed Academy (DSA) flag flying high with two podiums at the double-header of Rounds 2 and 3 of the UAE Rotax Max Challenge at Al Forsan International Kart Circuit over the weekend.

The other DSA drivers – Hamda Al Qubaisi (Junior Max), Ali Al Shamsi and Abdulla Al Qubaisi (both Mini Max) – did well to finish the weekend inside the top 10 in their respective class.

Amna, though, was in a class of her own, pushing the limits in the Pre-Final by surging ahead to fourth place from eighth on the starting grid.

She then began the final in sixth on the grid and raced ahead to third overall while still challenging for a better position on the podium.

In the earlier round, Amna secured a third place in class to give DSA yet another podium finish in the new season.

Amna now is second overall in the championship in class.

Ali Al Shamsi and Abdulla Al Qubaisi did well to finish inside the top 10 in their respective class in the Mini Max.

Meanwhile, seven-year-old Mohammed Al Qubaisi now leads the championship in the Bambino class by a healthy margin.

Daman Speed Academy founder and ADR Managing Director Khaled Al Qubaisi said: “Our drivers did a great job, Amna again on the podium in a tough group and the boys also doing really well to finish 5th and 6th in their class.

“Hamda also did well but was unlucky with her overtaking manoeuvres which ended up her losing a couple of positions.

“But overall, I am happy with our drivers and the progress they are making and looking to solidify our position in the championship, and thanks again to all our sponsors for the great support.”
