Sultan Bin Khalifa hails successful Team Abu Dhabi marine sports team



Members of Team Abu Dhabi have visited H.H. Sheikh Sultan Bin Khalifa Al-Nahyan, member of the Executive Council of the Abu Dhabi Govermment and Advisor to His Highness the Head of State, to celebrate winning the 2012 UIM F1 H20 Teams’ Championship title.


The Abu Dhabi International Marine Sports Club (ADIMSC)-based team confirmed the victory at last weekend’s Grand Prix of Sharjah, where Thani Al-Qamzi clinched an emphatic victory and dedicated the win to his team-mate Ahmed Al-Hameli. Team manager Scott Gillman returned to the driving seat to snatch seventh place.


Team members were invited to Sheikh Sultan bin Khalifa’s palace in the presence of His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan bin Khalifa Al-Nahyan, Deputy Chairman of the ADIMSC, to discuss and celebrate the Teams’ Championship success. His Highness paid tribute to the hard work and sterling efforts of Team Abu Dhabi and praised everyone involved in securing the prestigious title for the team and for the nation.


His Highness also asserted that Team Abu Dhabi is now at the forefront of F1 H20 racing at the very highest echelon of the sport and was delighted to continue his ongoing backing for a team that has gained such an excellent reputation on the world stage.


After talking with team members, His Highness listened to a detailed report from team manager Scott Gillman, who talked about the boats, the team and the technical staff behind the success on each of the rounds of the 2012 championship.


He also praised the achievements of the young racers in the UIM F-4S category, who are gaining more and more experience at each race and are the future of the sport in the UAE. Gillman also briefed His Highness on the subject of the training schedules that are in place before each race and during the course of the year to ensure a maximum chance of success at the actual events.


“The future is always in the hands of young people,” said His Highness. “They are the representatives of the UAE and the sport in the future and those Formula 4 drivers joining the team means that we have great confidence in their abilities.”


Al-Qamzi also confirmed his intention to return to challenge for the World Championship again in 2013 and was even more determined to succeed near year after the superb start made to this season by Ahmed Al-Hameli, who was unfortunately forced to miss the last two races through illness.


The meeting was also attended by Ahmed Al-Rumaithi, board member of the ADIMSC, Salem Al-Romaithi, assistant general manager of the ADIMSC, team drivers Thani Al-Qamzi and Rashed Al-Tayer, team manager Scott Gillman, radio man Jumaa Al-Qubaisi and F4 drivers Rashid Al-Qamzi, Rashid Al-Rumaithi and Mohammed Mehairbi.


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 and chairmanship of His Highness Dr. Sheikh Sultan Bin Khalifa Al Nahyan. Etihad Airways is the official carrier for Team Abu Dhabi.
