I had a chance of attending another round of Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East Season 8 in Dubai Autodrome today. I also attending their previous round in Dubai Autodrome on 9th December last year which was topped by Ireland’s Ryan Cullen. That was Cullen’s second win since this season started and he continued doing so today too.

Refreshed and eager to prove he had lost no speed over the winter break Cullen, who started in second on the grid made the win look easy after he emerged unscathed from the opening corner to take the chequered flag by 1.998 seconds ahead of his nearest rival.

Behind Cullen, surprise package Oman’s Al Faisal Al Zubair continued his impressive debut in the series with an assured race in second place, the best finish of his young career. Third position and final step of the podium went to Saudi’s experienced driver Bandar Alesayi, who like Al Zubair achieved the highest finish of his season.

There was a collision as well on the track and I tweeted Tom Oliphant, the driver from UK, about it. He answered in a video and seemed like he has his hopes still high for a better performance in the coming ones.

Below are a few glimpses of my attendance from the last race I attended in Dubai Autodrome.

In case you don’t know what Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East is; well its the most professional series of its kind in the region and offers a proven pathway to world-class international motorsport.
