XCAT WORLD CHAMPIONS OF ABU DHABI AIM TO RETAIN TITLE IN DUBAI GRAND FINALE
Shaun Torrente and Faleh Al Mansoori of Abu Dhabi team will clear out off-race matters in the 2019 UIM XCAT World Championship and spotlight on securing a twofold race triumph in this current end of the week's definitive Dubai Grand Prix.
The defending XCAT title holders, who opened the season with consecutive race wins in Italy, trust that an encore will be sufficient to see them hold the title they verified with triumph in China's Hangzhou Grand Prix a year ago.
"Our attention is absolutely on getting most extreme focuses from the end of the week, and the whole group will have nothing else on their minds," said group manager Talib Al-Sayed.
After a third spot finish in race three final month's Shanghai Grand Prix, Torrente and Al Mansoori figured they would land at this current end of the week's last round of the title in Duhai holding an important lead over the Dubai Police team of Arif Al Zaffain and Nadir Bin Hendi.
Be that as it may, XCAT Racing later turned around their choice to punish Al Zaffain and Bin Hendi for hitting a kid, evacuating a 30-seconds time punishment. They likewise forced two 30-seconds time punishments on Torrente and Al Mansoori in Abu Dhabi 4 for float encroachments toward the beginning.
Group Abu Dhabi have claimed against the punishments, yet as no choice has yet been come to, Al Zaffain and Bin Hendi at present lead the title by six points from Australians Tom Barry-Cotter and Ross Willaton in Maritimo, with Torrente and Al Mansoori another point behind in third.
Rashed Al Tayer and Majed Al Mansoori come back to activity in Dubai hoping to expand on a impressive run of exhibitions in China where they asserted a cap stunt of platform completes in Abu Dhabi 5.
The XCAT boats take to the water at Dubai International Marine Club for two authority practice sessions on Thursday beginning at 11am and 3.30pm.
The post position qualifier gets in progress at 9am on Friday, with race one thundering to life at 3pm and race two after simultaneously on Saturday.
