The Victory Team pair of Arif Al Zaffain and Nadir bin Hendi will start this afternoon’s Dubai GP in Pole Position after a sensational final lap that was four and a half seconds quicker than their nearest challenger. In the new-format race for Emaar Pole Position, the duo claimed the fastest times in all three qualifying sessions to book their top spot.
Gold Coast Australia (Tom Barry-Cotter and Ross Willaton) will start in second spot with Swecat Racing (Mikael Bengtsson and Erik Stark) in third while T-Bone Station (Giovanni Carpitella and Luca Fendi) will complete the top starting gate in fourth spot.
