Abdulla Al Qubaisi won both races during the third round of the Qatar Superstock 600 and is now leading the champsionship.

In the first race, Abdulla Al Qubaisi who got the Superpole, lead half of the race until the seventh lap, when Saeed Al Sulaiti ovetook him. Al Sulaiti managed to control the second part of the race but two laps to go, Al Qubaisi passed him in the straight line and took the victory with a gap of 0.397. Mishal Al Naimi, who started second from the grid, finished in third place.

In the second race, Al Qubaisi lead the race during the twelve race laps and crossed the checkered flag only 0.027 seconds in front of Mishal Al Naimi who finished second. Saeed Al Sulaiti finished in third place.

Al Qubaisi was very happy with his performance this weekend ‘I am really happy with this round. Last round I had some problems and I finished third, losing some points so for this round, my strategy was to win both races, to get some points and create a gap in the championship’ said Al Qubaisi.

For Mishal Al Naimi, this weekend was perfect as he didn’t have any proble with the front tyre as in previous rounds ‘This weekend was very good for us, we pushed a lot but Abdulla deserves both wins. I want to congratulate all the riders for their performance as they are improving their lap timings. The bike was perfect all the weekend, no problem at all with the tyre and hope I can do better in the next round’ said Al Naimi

Al Sulaiti had a good rhythm in the first race ‘In the race one, I really had a good rhythm and was ready to fight for the win until the last two laps, where Abdulla overtook me in the straight line and not possible to pass him in the last sector. In the second race, the start was good but in the beginning I made a mistake in corner four, where I almost lose the front and went wider, so I lost time.  Overall not bad but sad to lose the leading championship but still two more rounds to go’ commented Al Sulaiti.

In the QSTK Trophy, the first place was for Jeremy Parola followed by Rayad Al Emadi and Alexander Qabazard from Kuwait respectively in both races.

Starting from this round, there will be another category racing in the QSTK Championship, QSTK 300 Supersport with a total of eight riders from thirteen to sixteen years old taking part in this round.  The 14 years old Qatari rider Hamad Al Sahouti , Qatar Motorsports Academy rider, won the 7 laps race ‘It was an amazing race, I am very happy with my result. I started second in the grid but I pushed in the first lap and got the first position, with a nice battle with Yousef but finally I took the win. Many thanks to Losail Circuit Sports Club and QMMF for their support’ said Al Sahouti.

Yousef Al Darwish, also from Qatar, finished in second place and the French rider Alexian Macary completed the podium. The poleman of the race, Saad Al Harqan  didn’t have a good start in the race and he crashed in the first lap.
