Super Series Victories for Al Muyini

Dubai, UAE, 7 December 2019: Round Two of the National Sportsbike Super Series featured alongside the Gulf Radical Cup and the NGK UAE ProCar Championship on Friday (6 December) at Dubai Autodrome.

UAE champion Mahmoud Tannir (#10) started the day well as top qualifier out of 16 bikes, posting a best lap time of 2:10.399 on the 5.39-kilometre GP Circuit riding a Honda CBR, which was over a second and half clear of the nearest challenger, Saska Totaro (#5) on a Ducati 959.

The Yahama R6 of Ahmed Al Muyini (#47) placed a respectable P3 in qualifying, but the Saudi rider managed to squeeze even more speed out of the Yahama machinery when it really mattered in the next two races.

Al Muyini cruised to victory in Race One, taking the chequered flag by over five seconds ahead of Totaro.  Race Two was more challenging, but Al Muyini didn’t hesitate to take another win, this time by 2.801 seconds over Tannir.

Al Muyini strengthened his position in the 600cc Superstock championship, while Tannir did well to come back and top 600cc Supersport in Race Two, after dropping out of the first race, gifting Nasir Syed (#44) and his Kawasaki ZXR a class win.

A second and third-place finish denied Totaro a place on the top step of the podium overall, but the Italian rider did well enough to claim a pair of class victories in Ducati Pro-Twins.
