Karimi and Longden took full advantage, each earning a strong finish to end their seasons.

With the title already decided in the BIC 2,000cc Challenge, champion Shaikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa did not participate in the season’s last round, leaving an opportunity for others to rise onto the podium.
