IMG 3069 1024x768 Round 3 & 4 PreviewSaudi racer Mashhur Bal Hejaila takes a slender points lead into the second event of the 2015/16 Formula Gulf Championship this weekend after a win apiece for him and 15 year old Danish driver Cato Poulsen at last month’s races on the National Circuit at the Dubai Autodrome.

Along with Italian karter Giulio Peroni and Saudi’s Omar Gazzaz, they will be joined this weekend by a couple of experienced competitors. Coming all the way from Perth in Western Australia to train and race with the GulfSport team is expert cyclist and F1000 racer Jordan Oon who is expected to be immediately on the pace this weekend.

Emirati Haytham Sultan, who coincidentally also trained as a professional cyclist, will rejoin the grid in Dubai after a break of two seasons. It is touch and go for Bahrain’s Abdallah Beshara who hopes to have his race licence in time to compete in his first ever car race after a very promising test with GulfSport last month.

Drivers are coached by UK professional Andy Pardoe, trained by Optimal Fitness, stay with hospitality partner Towers Rotana, and compete for an F3 test with Campos Racing is Spain and VIP tickets from Gulf Oil with Aston Martin Racing at the 2016 Le Mans 24 Hours.
