(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Sunday night saw the end of 6hrs silverstone first round of world endurance championship 25 minutes short of its original duration due to heavy rains.

khaled al qubaisi

with conditions becoming dangerous on track it was decided to red flag the event and terminate the race. this was a drawback for the proton competition team who bears the abu dhabi racing emblem forcing them to take the fourth position in the lmgte am class just when the opportunity to snatch third was available for khaled al qubaisi and teammates klaus bachler and christian ried.

despite it being an endurance race of 6hrs not 12 or 24hrs the first round of world endurance championship season was long and exciting for all with fierce battles raging amongst all participants in all classes. halfway through the 6hrs silverstone race eyes were drawn to the heavy-weight rumbling of colossal car makers toyota porsche and audi in the lmp1 class and to the performance of privately owned teams competing in the lmgte am class on the likes of proton competition which bears the colours of abu dhabi racing lead by drivers khaled al qubaisi klaus bachler and christian ried in a temperamental dry to rainy weather conditions that did little to leash the fierceness of the battle in that category.

the race was off to a steady start in dry weather which allowed klaus bachler to fetch three positions 12 laps after he took off in sixth and kept momentum an hour later where khaled al qubaisi opted for driving on wet weather tyres to gain momentum that would have otherwise been lost at the pit. “i was driving on tyres unfit for the dry surface. i was in an uneasy situation pushing myself to the extreme to harness the fastest times my wet weather tyres would allow during which the circuit was taking on its natural dry surface. i had to adapt to the pressing situation to save us precious minutes we may have lost driving to the pit” al qubaisi said.
