Muscat: Bahrain International Circuit’s was dominated by one driver, as Al Faisal Al Zubair continued to make his mark on the Porsche BWT GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East, the Season 10 title and Middle Eastern motorsport.

Having already been crowned winner of Race 1 on Friday, Zubair showed no signs of conceding any of the three qualifying sessions or races undertaken over the weekend.

Faced with challenging starts due to an influx of new international drivers behind him eager to make their move on the reigning champion, Zubair lost his lead at the first turn of all three races, but only to recover with ease.

The young Omani seized the challenge, using his experience to manoeuvre his way back into pole and pull away to leave the battle in his rear-view mirror, giving the crowd a sense of déjà vu each race.

The Omani champion built a lead of 5 seconds in Race 1 and 8 seconds in Race 2 to see him comfortably cruise to the chequered flag untroubled.

Race 3, an additional race added to four rounds this season taking the total races in the championship from 12 to a demanding 16, Zubair managed just a 0.728 gap ahead of Berkay Besler of Turkey in second to prove how the added race allows for increased competition.

Speaking after a productive weekend, Oman’s Zubair commented: “This has been the perfect weekend for me - three poles and three race wins.

“I enjoyed the last race a lot and it was a fantastic ending to a great weekend. The race was more difficult than the first two of Round 2, but interesting and fun nonetheless. Michael and Berkay performed very well and this has made me even happier with my result.”
