Mohammad Al Saud
Mohammad Al Saud is a real rookie to this year’s Championship even as he is not the youngest participant. 24 years old he started his racing career only last year in the national Saudi GT3 Championship with a Porsche 907 that was run for him by Lechner Racing.
Without any experience in karting like some other rookies in this year’s Championship the step into the high profiled Porsche GT3 Challenge Middle East is quite a big one.
But already during the first race weekend in Bahrain the member of the Royal Saudi family impressed by his calm and mature approach, finishing both races and not inflicting any kind of damage to the car.
His aim is to learn a lot in his first year in a professional racing series. During the next two or three years with the help of his Dutch driver coach Michael Burgess he wants to be able to follow the example of other Middle Eastern drivers like Abdulaziz Al Faisal or Khaled Al Qubaisi on their way into the international motor racing world.
