Fastest TCR and Clio Cup Marks Set in Abu Dhabi

Dubai, UAE, 21 February 2021:  The intrepid NGK UAE ProCar contingent travelled to Abu Dhabi over the weekend (18-20 February) to contest the fourth round of the championship and managed to topple track records for TCR and Renault Clio Cup Classes.

The Dragon Racing Ferrari 488 Challenge Evo (#14), at the hands of Paul Sebright, dominated both NGK UAE ProCar races on the Grand Prix configuration at Yas Marina Circuit, taking overall and Ferrari Challenge Class victories.

Alexandros Annivas (#9) of Mouhritsa Racing pushed his TCR Cupra Leon to the limit chasing Ferraris, which earned the Greek driver third-place and second-place overall trophies, top honours in TCR Class for both races and a new TCR lap-record (2:23.992) on the Grand Prix Circuit during qualifying.

Ahmad Al Moosa (#77) of Rent2Race also found incredible pace in his Renault Clio Cup in pursuit of Annivas up ahead.  The Emirati driver racked up two class victories and set the fastest Clio Cup lap time in Race Two (2:37.808), adding another record for the weekend.
