Driver Presentation: Al Faisal Al Zubair
Al Faisal al Zubair is absolutely no newcomer to the racing world, even at his young age of only 18 years. Born in Muscat/Oman, he started early on in karting before making his way up through some junior single seater categories in Great Britain. In 2016 he was already part of British Formula 3, from where quite a lot of top drivers made it into a professional career, even up to Formula 1.
Recently, he tested the Porsche GT3 car at Brno for two days and impressed everybody with his talent and his steep learning curve. His driver coach, well experienced Porsche Supercup driver Ryan Cullen, who by the way will also be part of this season’s Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East, rates him as a very valuable addition to the 2016/17 grid. „It is very important for any racing series worldwide to be able to promote local talent,“ he says. „But especially in an area like the Middle East, where racing still has a huge margin of growth ahead, somebody like him can attract a lot of additional interest to the sport.“
