2012 UIM F1 H20 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP  Grand Prix of Tatarstan – June 21-23




- Thani Al-Qamzi looks to bounce back from Qatar race disappointment

- Mohamed Al-Maharbi set to represent Team Abu Dhabi in F-4S races




Team Abu Dhabi’s Ahmed Al-Hameli will be aiming to extend his five-point lead in the 2012 UIM F1 H20 World Championship at this weekend’s Grand Prix of Tatarstan in Kazan.


The Emirati secured maximum points by winning the opening round of the series in Qatar over three months ago and knows that it is vital to put more championship points on the board at this weekend’s race in the capital of the Republic of Tatarstan. Al-Hameli was the form driver at the opening round of the championship and leads Phillipe Chiappe and Sami Selio at this early stage in the new calendar.


“It’s a case of keeping the momentum going and getting as many points on the board as possible,” said Al-Hameli. “It was a superb start to the year in Qatar. Everything worked well and went according to plan.”


Team-mate Thani Al-Qamzi was on course for a podium finish in Qatar until he was sidelined with mechanical issues and the second Emirati driver needs to finish on the podium this weekend to prevent himself falling behind Al-Hameli, Chiappe, Selio and the Qatar Team duo of Shaun Torrente and World Champion Alex Carella.


Team Abu Dhabi runs under the auspices of the Abu Dhabi International Marine Sports Club (ADIMSC) with support from the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority (ADTA). Salem Al-Romaithi acts as the team head and works alongside team manager Scott Gillman, with the team running under the patronage of His Highness Dr. Sheikh Sultan Bin Khalifa Al Nahyan.


Meanwhile, officials at the Abu Dhabi International Marine Sports Club (ADIMSC) have confirmed that Mohamed Al-Maharbi will represent the team in the two F-4S Eurofin Trophy races. Rashed Al-Qamzi and Al-Maharbi were present at the opening round in Doha Bay and Al-Maharbi is tasked with challenging early season leader Matthew Palfreyman for championship points at this weekend’s two races.
 

The timetable of events starts with technical scrutineering tomorrow (Thursday). With Kazan on the same time zone as the UAE, the first of the free practice sessions for the F1 drivers begins at 11.15hrs on Friday morning.
 

F-4S Eurofin Trophy entrants take part in their time trials at 13.00hrs and the first of two 20-minute races at 17.00hrs. Qualification for Saturday’s UIM F1 H20 Grand Prix of Tatarstan starts at 18.00hrs.


There will be a second free practice session on Saturday morning and the second of the weekend’s F-4S races begins at 15.00hrs after F-4S timed trials at 13.00hrs.


The Grand Prix of the Republic of Tatarstan starts at 17.00hrs on Saturday afternoon and will be held in the presence of Rustam Minnikhanov, the President of the Republic of Tatarstan, who has a close affinity with the United Arab Emirates and motor sport, in particular. Rustam was a former competitor with the Kamaz truck team in the UAE Desert Challenge, a round of the FIA World Cup for Cross-Country Rallies.
