JEDDAH: Saudi Falcons team finished the preparations for the new 2012-2013 racing season where the team underwent intensive training for the many championships of the Middle East racing season, which is expected to be highly competitive.
Saudi Falcons are looking to win and become the leading competitor in the championships that they will take part in, first in the Karting World Championship (Under 18 years) round at Bahrain International Circuit on Nov. 8-10. The team will be represented in this championship by the driver Abdulla Al Thawadi, who will be seeking to give the team an early boost by achieving the first win in this season.
Red Bull’s Abdulaziz Turki Al Faisal and Faisal Bin Laden will be competing in the first two rounds of the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East Championship at Bahrain International Circuit on Nov. 16-17, with Abdulaziz hoping to get the first win in his title defense season.
