Rising Star in the Racing World Recently Rashid Al Khalifa in Grade 3 walked away with a first place victory at the Bahrain International Circuit. Taking after his father’s love for racing, Rashid took up Go-Karting 6 months ago and has proven to be a natural on the track. During the month of January, Rashid entered the finals in 4th position after several tough qualifying rounds. Not feeling deterred, Rashid quickly jumped to second place before the first turn as he weaved through his competition. Staying close to the leader, Rashid battled for 1st, and by turn 8 Rashid had taken the lead. The rest of the race was a grueling back and forth battle against more experienced drivers. Getting clipped as the race neared the end, Rashid’s training kicked in and he was able to recover and remain in a close race. Now, with 3 cars in a tight race for 1st, Rashid had an even bigger challenge ahead of him! Through his determination Rashid continued to put his skills to the test, finishing the race strong and walking away with a first place trophy. When asked about his victory Rashid stated, “To finish first, first you must finish.” Cleary Rashid had set his sights high and came away victorious. Rashid’s racing career is just getting off the ground and we look forward to hearing about his continued success!
