AL OTHMAN LOOKING TO CLINCH PODIUM IN BATELCO CHALLENGE

Hisham Al Othman is hoping to rise to the podium when the third round of the Batelco 2000cc Challenge takes place as part of ‘Speed Weekend Bahrain’ on December 11 and 12 at Bahrain International Circuit.
 
Al Othman, who drives a Honda CRX in the championship, has had a rough time so far with two rounds done in the 2009/2010 season.
 
In the opener held in October, he finished fifth in race one and then went sixth in race two, having competed while not feeling 100% healthy due to an illness. The second round last month was not any better. Al Othman finished sixth in the first race and then was forced to pull out from the next due to a technical fault in his car.
 
Al Othman commented: “This third season of the Batelco 2000cc Challenge has been very tough, with plenty of strong competition form the very beginning.
 
“All the drivers are well equipped and capable of taking the podium, and everyone has raised the level of their cars with a lot of development.
 
“The next round will be during ‘Speed Weekend Bahrain’, and I am confident I can take something positive from it. Both races will surely be hotly contested, but I am determined to do well and take a step on the podium.
 
“I also hope I can get a sponsor so I could better compete with the top runners who are leading the championship.”
 
Al Othman expressed his gratitude to his teammates who are looking after the technicalities of his car.
He is presently in seventh place on the championship standings with 16 points. Leading the fight for the title is Mustafa Al Khan (Honda Civic) with 41 points. Shaikh Jaber in Ali Al Khalifa (Honda Integra) is second with 36 points, and Shaikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa (Honda Civic) third with 31 points.
 
The Batelco 2000cc Challenge is being organized and run by the Circuit Racing Club, in cooperation with the Bahrain Motor Federation, Bahrain International Circuit, and leading telecommunications company Batelco, who are providing the attractive prize money for the third straight season.
Tickets for ‘Speed Weekend Bahrain’ are now available at 7 BD for both days. Children aged 15 years old and younger will be able to get in free.
