Abu Dhabi, UAE, 9th Dec, 2013:- Proud Saudi driver Mohammed Jawa is racing this weekend under the flag of Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, with his own M-Team. This is the first representation of a Saudi national in this prestigious endurance race at Yas Marina’s acclaimed Formula 1 circuit. Mohammed will team up with co-drivers Khaled Al Mudhaf from Kuwait and Jordon Grogor to race with the Dubai Dragon Racing squad.
Mohammed is a passionate racing driver who has crafted his sport over several years at a GCC level, now with his goal firmly set on improving his International experience, this is his debut in Endurance racing and a prelude to the Dubai 24hr race in January.
“I’m enjoying this high level of racing and I’m benefiting mentally and physically from my step up in my physical training. I knew this would be more demanding than I have experienced before and racing for longer in the car drains the energy if you are not prepared. I have been taking my fitness and health to new levels recently and I am enjoying working within the team along with my personal coach Michael Vergers. I’m improving on pace every time I race the car.”
“Its part of a fresh personal challenge and provides me with valuable life skills, improving my fitness, my agility and communication these are all essential skills for life in general. I have so much still to learn, and I’m soaking up all the information like a sponge, I can’t wait for the race on Friday,” commented Mohammed prior to testing today.
The Abu Dhabi Gulf 12hr endurance race starts on Thursday 12th with qualifying and is contested over a two part race format, with a grid of 60 cars, giving teams two separate races of six hours. The first starts at 9:30am on Friday 13th and finishes at 15:30pm, culminating in the final, night-time race, which starts at 17:45pm and finishes at 23:45pm.
