Al Nabooda Racing make history in GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East (20-04-2013)

Dubai. Al Nabooda Racing has capped a perfect season with a perfect team performance in the 2012/13 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East, bringing the inaugural Team Championship title to Dubai.

With the final 11th and 12th rounds taking place at Bahrain International Circuit last weekend, all team-mates Karim Al Azhari and Clemens Schmid had to do was avoid a major catastrophe to keep their title hopes alive.

But both drivers showed why they have remained on top of the team standings since the opening two rounds at the same circuit back in October last year, with each scoring emphatic victories over the final weekend.

There was no stopping Schmid in Round 11, who scored his seventh consecutive victory by a comfortable 12.8 seconds, while Al Azhari was rewarded for the key role he played in the team's overall success in the GT3 Cup this season, winning the final round of what was an ultimate season for the duo.

In addition to bringing to Dubai the inaugural Team Championship crown of the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East, Al Nabooda Automobiles also scored victory in the individual drivers' championship, with Schmid (276pts) overcoming the Saudi Falcons reigning champion Abdulaziz Al Faisal (262pts).
