Mouhritsa Racing Champion head’s to Le Mans to contest the IAME
International Karting Final.
Dubai, September 8, 2015: Dubai based racing driver Alexandros Annivas will be heading off to
the Le Mans Karting International Circuit in France to compete in the IAME International Final to be held
between the 14th & 18th October 2015
The 35 Year old Greek national, Alexandros Annivas, a driver of the multiple championship winning UAE
based Mouhritsa Racing, and multiple champion himself in the DAMC Clio Cup and 2015 DAMC 2 litre
touring car champion, is excited to be going back to his roots in karting, especially at the Le Mans Karting
Annivas started his motorsport journey in the junior ranks of karting with in his homeland of Greece, and
moved up through the classes before moving out to the UAE where he started track based motorsport at
the Dubai Autodrome in 2009 in the Suzuki swift cup as a driver.
In January 2015, Annivas got back behind the wheel of his beloved kart once again in the Dubai O plate
and competed in a Tecno / Parilla Screamer KZ shifter kart posting the second best in qualifying. Shortly
after it was announced that the IAME X30 Challenge was to start its first season, the die was cast and he
decided to tackle both the 2015/16 DAMC touring car championship, as well as the 2015/16 IAME X30
Challenge in the 6 speed shifter Kart.
During the last 12 months Alex has been training hard, working on fitness, and getting lots of seat time
on kart tracks both here in the UAE and in Greece, in order to prepare for the IAME international Finals.
However it is one thing wanting to go to the finals, it’s another thing trying to ensure you can get a place
on the grid in the ultra-competitive IAME X30 Super Shifter Karts category.
When on line entries opened for the IAME International Finals, all classes were oversubscribed within
the first few hours, so an anxious wait ensued until an email arrived this week saying his entry had been
accepted and his race number was assigned to him.
Annivas said “It was a huge relief when I got the email to say that my entry has been accepted. Now I
have to rise to the challenge to compete in a World Final. I have a fantastic team around me and I want
to do well for them, as big thank you to them, for all the support & encouragement they give me.
