Team Abu Dhabi’s Rashed Al-Qemzi received his prestigious UIM F2 World Championship trophy at the UIM Awards’ dinner at the Sporting Club Monte-Carlo on Saturday night.
Driving in only his second full season of F2 races, the Emirati running out of the Abu Dhabi International Marine Sports Club (ADIMSC) rocked the establishment with his stunning performance in 2017 and is already looking forward to the forthcoming season.
“I enjoyed my first full season in F2 last year, but my main focus last year, and in 2018, was and will be in F2. The team was so happy to complete the F1 and F2 championship goals last season, but we have even more targets this year, which we will be working on in the coming weeks.
“I have tested a lot already in Abu Dhabi for the new season with the Formula boats. We have learned a lot. I hope that we will achieve the same goal this year in F2 that we did last year. We have big entries already confirmed in F2 for 2018 and it will be even harder to qualify and do well in the races. I will have to push even harder in the pole position.”
Rashed Al-Qemzi was joined on the glittering Monaco stage to receive his award by Team Abu Dhabi’s Nasser Al-Dhaheri. Over 400 guests from 60 nations attended the flagship event in the UIM calendar.
