In the SWS RX7 Seniors it was Jiby Kuriakose who powererd to pole position in qualifying, a mere 0.168 faster than Dubai based schoolgirl Abi Birch. The top ten drivers separated by less than a second and thus setting the stage for what was to come.

In one of the closest fought SWS races seen at Dubai’s most popular karting venue, Hadi Al Bloushi took victory in race one after a thrilling duel with Kuriakose, former champion Paul Chatenay and Hussein Umid Ali.

The quartet lapping in tandem as Bloushi crossed to claim maximum points, ahead of Kuriakose in second, Chatenay third and Umid Ali fourth – less than a second separating them.
Ali Al Mansoori was fifth ahead of Oleg Kazakov in sixth. Umid Ali setting the fastest lap of 1 minute 11.570 seconds.

In the second race Chatenay took top spot, after managing to edge out a 1.7 seconds lead by the time he acknowledged the chequered flag. He also set the fastest lap of 1 minute 11.652 seconds in the process.

Umid Ali fought off the attentions of Al Bloushi, the pair crossing the line side-by-side to finish second and third respectively. Kuiriakose was fourth ahead of Birch in fifth and Maz Nawaz finishing sixth.

Earlier in the evening the SWS LR4 juniors also delivered close racing of the highest order, with the UAE’s 2014 SWS World Finals representative Mansoor Al Sarraj claiming pole in qualifying.
In Race 1 Samuel Garbutt was in inspired form as he powererd to a comfortable 8.752 seconds win over Alex Connor, who carved his way through the field from last on the grid to claim second place – definately a candidate for the drive of the day.

Smallest driver in the field, Samir Malas impressed on his way to third place after a race long duel with Al Sarraj who finished fifth.

In Race 2 Connor inherited victory when Kamal Agha, who crossed the finish line first, was given a ten seconds penalty for ‘avoidable contact where advantage was gained’ but before that the duo delivered a masterclass in close racing. Agha’s penalty demoted him from first to fifth.

Oliver Wilson was second, Garbutt third and fourth place going to Malas, who led early on in the final race as he did in the first race.

The next round of the SWS Sprint Series takes place at the Kartdrome on 13 April.
