Lebanon’s Mahmoud Tannir wins the opening round of the 2014 Qatar SBK 600cc series

Lebanese rider Mahmoud Tannir has scored maximum points during the opening round of the Qatar Superbike Championship 2014 by clinching two race wins at the Losail International Circuit this past weekend.

Tannir, a double UAE Sportbikes champion, who recently secured the support of Lebanese premier food products distributors LIFCO Group as well as Bikers Cafe, raced a TMR Honda (Tannir Moto Racing) in the 600cc class and managed to put the motorcycle on pole position (1st in category, 13th overall) during Friday’s busy qualifying session of 47 riders, before cruising to a double win on Saturday.

“Dedicating this first win of Qatar SBK 600 to my incredible team and the guys at Al Futtaim Honda who worked so hard to get us here on time, to all my sponsors for their trust and mostly to my family and friends for their amazing support. Thank you!” wrote Tannir on his official Facebook page.

The 2014 Qatar Superbike Championship will consist of seven rounds, with the next one scheduled on October 31-November 1 as a support race for the final round of World Superbikes.

Testing Opportunity on the Yas Marina Grand Prix Circuit
19th and 20th December 2018.

GulfSport Racing announces a unique opportunity for experienced racing drivers to gain amazing seat time in their 186bhp slicks and wings single seater race cars alongside European F4 drivers preparing for UAE F4.

You will drive the floodlit circuit on two evenings. On day 1 you will get familiar with 12 corners of the 2.36kms South Circuit then move up to the full 21 corners of the 5.5kms Grand Prix circuit on day 2 on new tyres. You will work with top international driver coach Andy Pardoe in all sessions using data and video and you will be engineered by GulfSport’s Martin Hope. Using the same Hankook slick tyres as the F4 cars, on a lighter chassis and with more power, lap times will be comparable.

Over the course of two days you will have up to 360 minutes of track time to use. FIA homologated racewear and HANS required.

This testing not run under an FIA Race permit so there is no need for you to request Start Permission from your home ASN.
