Round 2 of the 2016 SWS Sprint Series took place at the Kartdrome on Monday night (1 February) and has become the norm, delivering action packed, close racing with Kamal Agha and Ali Al Mansoori overall winners on the night.


In the Senior SWS Class Ali Al Mansoori had to work hard for his two wins, as Dubai schoolgirl Abigail Birch ran him close in both races finishing second in Race 1 by 0.372 of a second and Race 2 by less than a quarter of a second. The two were inseparable all night, with Mansoori doing just enough to bag maximum points.


Behind them a posse of drivers slugged it out for third place with Ahmed Al Hammadi fending off Hussain Umid Ali, Imran Akhlaq and Suhail Al Muhairi in the first race.


In the second race, behind Al Mansoori and Birch, Rami Azzam nabbed third place, beating fourth placed Umid Ali to the finish line, followed by Romaldo Labrooy in fifth and sixth place going to Anjum Shaikh, who did enough on the night to claim top spot in the SWS Masters category.


In Race 1 of the Junior SWS, Kamal Agha took a narrow victory over Danny Shields, with Rashid al Dhaheri third, ahead of pole winner Jakub Fitzsimmons in fourth, with Seif Al Naggar in fifth and Alex Connor rounding out the top six.


In Race 2, Al Naggar did the business winning by two and a half seconds, with Al Dhaheri runner-up after a close tussle with Shields in third, followed by Fitzsimmons in fourth and Race 1 winner Agha fifth with Connor again in sixth place.





 Seniors Top three (L to R) second placed Abigail Birch, race winner Ali Al Mansoori and third placed Hussein Umid Ali.



With results tallied from both races Agha emerged the overall winner, with Al Naggar second and Danny Shields in third - making it an all Sodi Academy drivers' podium in the junior category.


Round 3 of the SWS Sprint Series takes place at Dubai Kartdrome on Monday, 22 February.
