He finished ahead of Fahad Algosaibi from Saudi Arabia, who was 2.886 seconds behind. Richard Wagner from Germany came third 4.295s back, while James Dorlin from the UK was fourth, Bandar Alesayi from Saudi fifth and Daan van Kuijk from the Netherlands sixth.

Nicolas Missilin from Monaco and Timmy Vermeulen from the Netherlands completed the top eight.

All the top placers were competing in the series’ GT3 class. Team Bahrain’s Shaikh Ali bin Mohammed Al Khalifa just missed out on the top 10 in 11th.

In the GT4 category, Charlie Wurz from Austria was the victor, with Saud Al Saud and Khaled Alahmadi from Saudi completing the podium placers.
