Saudi Arrows victorious at Saudi GT Championship

Audi Sport customer racing celebrated its second title success of the season this week in Saudi Arabia, where Mohammed Bin Saud Al Saud was crowned Saudi GT Championship winner at Reem Circuit. This win followed another Audi team victory at the New Zealand championship in March.

The ambitious driver from Saudi Arabia, who only joined Audi Sport customer racing at the beginning of the year, recorded his fourth victory in six races and won the 2016/2017 Saudi GT Championship in his Audi R8 LMS.

The 24 year old Mohammed Bin Saud Al Saud started this year's season with a huge success at the Dubai 24H. Al Saud, who relies on the support from the Belgian Audi Club WRT team, secured 6th place with his Saudi Arrows (Mohammed Bin Saud Al Saud/Mohammed Bin Faisal Al Saud/Marcel Faessler/Michael Vergers) behind the wheel of the Audi R8 LMS #5 at their very first 24H Dubai appearance.

"I chose the Audi R8 LMS after I saw how successful it was at the Blancpain GT series and at the 24H Dubai in 2016 and I made the right decision," said Mohammed Bin Saud Al Saud. "The car is reliable, the gearbox is amazing, the balance is perfect and it is fun and easy to drive," he continued.

Now he is busy planning what to do during the Middle East off season. He is considering some races in Europe, but has not made a final decision yet.

"The Saudi Arrows will be at the fore of the KSA racing scene both inside and outside the Middle East", says Mohammed Bin Saud Al Saud. "We want to leave a footprint in the racing world globally and with the great support of Audi and WRT this is possible."
