Dubai (UAE): Class 1 World Champions Nader Bin Hendi and Arif Al Zafeen maintained their remarkable 2010 season with win number eight in the opening race of the Emirates/Dubai Duty Free Grand Prix at Mina Seyahi yesterday (Friday).
The Fazza crew have dominated the Class One scene over the past few years and they underlined their supremacy with the 20th race win of their careers some 14 seconds ahead of Team Abu Dhabi’s Rashid Al Tayer and John Tomlinson with Italians Guido Cappellini and Giampaolo Montavoci just over eight seconds further adrift in third with GSG Ceramic Design.
It’s a win that continues their rise through Class 1’s Hall of Fame – now only British racing legend Steve Curtis (40 wins) and Norwegian pilot Bjorn Gjelsten (34) are ahead of them in the modern era.
“With the World Championship already won, there was no pressure on us to win in Dubai,” said throttleman Bin Hendi. “But we wanted to go out and put on a show and that’s exactly what we did. It was a perfect race for us.”Read more
