Al Nabooda Racing is at first place with 288 points, followed by the Skydive Dubai Falcons at 280 points.

“This weekend is Dubai, the home ground of Al Nabooda Racing, so we’ll be pushing hard to get maximum points and make that gap a little bigger,” said locally based racer Clemens Schmid, who’s currently in first place with 190 points.

With the Skydive Dubai Falcons in second place on the overall team title standings, Emirati Saeed Al Mehairi believes his team has a chance of winning the regional competition.

“It’s an exciting time in the competition that is for sure,” he said. “We have a real chance to battle for the team title so it’s an opportunity to cement our status in the pinnacle of regional racing.”
