GFH Team iSport – GP2 Asia Series
Round 6  Bahrain Sprint Race Report: Sunday 26th April 2009


Giedo van der Garde (NED) – 7th
Hamad Al Fardan (BAR) – 17th

GFH team iSport drivers Giedo van der Garde and Hamad Al Fardan completed their final race of the GP2 Asia Series this morning. With the Championship decided in yesterday’s Feature Race it was the final opportunity for the drivers to shine before the GP2 Series begins in Barcelona in a 2 weeks time.

Starting from P4 on the reverse grid, Dutch GFH team iSport driver van der Garde lost ground at the start and after a brief safety car period fought hard with yesterday’s race winner Diego Nunes over P6. Van der Garde took the chequered flag in P7 just shy of the points but finishes the season as the 3rd best rookie in a very competitive series.

Van der Garde’s team mate, Hamad Al Fardan had a difficult task today starting from the back of the grid after his DNF in yesterday’s Feature Race. The safety car period did not help Al Fardan’s efforts and in the short sprint Al Fardan finished P17.

We would like to thank Gulf Finance House and our sponsors and suppliers for their support in what has been a challenging and exciting GP2 Asia Series.
