Race Day 2: MotorCity Dubai Motorsport Festival at Dubai Autodrome

The combination of Rob Barff and Leon Price in the AUH Motorsports run Ferrari 458 Italia are proving to be the class of the NGK UAE GT Championship as they powered to an impressive win in the GTA Class at the second round of the series on the final day of the Dubai Motorsport Festival at Dubai Autodrome.

Barff started from pole and set about opening up a handy lead in the first half of the race, which included the race fastest lap, before handing over to Price who brought the car home to take overall victory in the one hour mini enduro race.

Price said afterwards, “It was a great win. This car is fantastic and we have now won five races out of five with it, including races in Europe. Once again Rob set a great early pace, he was super consistent. During my stint, I found it to be very hot and tough in the cockpit. But we did enough and of course it’s great to win.”

Barff was quick to acknowledge the team effort, “I played a small role as there a many people involved with the success. I must thank AUH Motorsport and the crew for their efforts. They made this possible. The car was great, we keep learning about it and really it ran like clockwork in challenging conditions. It feels great to win against strong competition today.”

Second overall and winners of the Porsche GT3 Endurance Challenge ME, race within a race, was the pairing of Ahmad Al Harthy and James Sutton, who finished ahead of the similar Porsche of Christian Mezel and Armin Schmid.

Emirati pairing of Saeed Al Mehairi and Sheikh Hasher Al Maktoum won the GTC Class in the Yas Marina Circuit backed Aston Martin. “The team did a good job and gave us a very strong car. Conditions were tough but it is good to score a win here at Dubai Autodrome,” said Al Mehairi.

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Maria Sharapova sure as shooting means business when she steps onto a tennis court. Regardless of what state of affairs, winning or losing, there is absolutely no let-up. A big serve, scalding ground strokes, winning points often greeted with a clenched fist and screeches of jubilation.
