Dubai, UAE, 20 February, 2016: Jeffrey Schmidt in the Al Nabooda Racing Porsche was the double winner in two Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge ME races, on a day packed with ten races at Dubai Autodrome.

Ryan Cullen put the disappointment of a DNF in the first race and chased Schmidt all the way to the chequered flag in Race 2. Schmidt winning by a mere 1.5 seconds with Cullen in runner-up. Third placed Al Faisal managed to fend off Ashkanani in the battle for the final podium spot, with Frijns in fifth.

Leon Price in the Dragon Racing Ferrari and Porsche driver Wolfgang Triller shared a win apiece in the two NGK Racing Series races. Price doing the business in Race 1 after Triller was penalised and relegated to second.

Saudi Falcon Kawasaki riders Abdulaziz Binladen and Ahmed Almuyni dominated race one of the UAE Sportbikes Championship the pair finishing first and second, ahead of Honda mounted Mahmoud Tannir in third, followed by Yamaha pair of Vafi Khan in fourth and Magnus Mossberg fifth.

Binladen was again unstoppable in race claiming a comfortable victory, while Tannir got the better of Al Muyni, the duo crossing the line almost side by side in second and third respectively. Nawaf Al Shuaibi was fourth ahead of fellow Yamaha rider Mossberg.

Another Yamaha rider, Kris Murphy, bagged maximum points as he ended up tops in the Rookie Class race-within-a-race.

It was a historic day for the two wheel brigade as rider Sabah Mukri became the first female to compete in a UAE Sportbike Championship race. She finished 12th in the first race and 11th in race two.

Romain Lutter and Ludovic Loffreda teamed up to win the Radical Middle East Cup 45 minutes mini-enduro style Race 1 by 6.6 seconds from Richard Ardolino in second place, who managed to see off the concerted challenge of Julian Griffin in third place – the pair separated by half a second as they crossed the finish line.

Cato Poulsen won Race 1 in the Formula Gulf 1000, ahead of Galhuseyn Abdullayev and Omar Gazzaz. In Race 2 it was a case of role reversal with Abdullayev taking top honours ahead of Cato and Gazzaz again in third.

🏁 Robert Kubica is P1 😀 ... See Less

🏁 Robert Kubica is P1 😀

Comment on Facebook

.4 gap to a Red Bull and .6 to a Kubica was giving it everything and the others were concentrating on long runs, then!

So kubica is 2.5 sec faster then raikkonen and still he is without a seat 😱😱😱😱 just imagine him in a merc! He wuld be 25time champion 😂😂😂😂

Wish the entire season was this mixed up and not just Mercades up front. Makes it boring.

Calling it right now, Kubica gonna be back on the grid in 2021. Wouldnt be suprised if he replaces Kimi

finally a good amount of laps from ferrari without issues... hope they keep this momentum

Where are these people now who said he is an embarrassement to F1, that he can't drive properly with one hand? Clearly, the car was a problem last year. Even Claire admitted Robert's car behaved unpredictably. And yes I know it's testing and I know he was in quali mode, but his time shows he still has potential.

Showboating Kubica. I bet he's driving past the Williams garage with a single digit raised...

I wish he still had a full time Formula One drive in a much better car than last year's Williams. Given time to readjust to the sport I think the world would've started seeing the driver we all remembered and admired again...

It’s testing the time sheets mean nothing Remember last season everyone was saying how strong Ferrari were then come Melbourne Mercedes blow them out the water

Kimi fanboy will get triggered after they see Kubica laptime. Good, this is my wet dream to see two most anoying driver fanboy group in F1 to fight

I was about to say that is a good lap count for Grosjean and the Haas and then remembered he was the only one driving that car today and it's only 17 more than Lewis, who was only in his for half the day.

Wow P1 in testing! The time cars are wait....TESTED! It is not Quali pace or race pace!

the lap time should be written in the color of the tire used to mark the time, , whether in training or racing...

How many sandbags did Mercedes bring to Barcelona this year??

It’s only testing I know but it’s nice to see him at the top of a chart, he was so fast back in his prime, he really should have been a champion.

Quick enough for P9 in quali last year. Testing times aren't much to go by.

A competitive car is all he needed.. Wish he would have moved to alpha romeo and paired up with Kimi and fought for mid field racing.... P1 at last for Bob... ❤❤❤

Two seconds slower than last weeks fastest time! The next two days will see the teams chasing performance so the times will ramp up.👍

We don't know what the teams setups are. Not saying it's not impressive but he's about a second and a half off last week's fastest.

So now all the Polish fans with last years conspiracy theories as to how Russell annihilated their man will claim that this proves that Robert truly is the best driver on the track this year.

Shows what he can do when he’s not driving a tractor round the track

What??? Kimi is 3 sec slower than Kubica in the same car🤔

My concern is... Is McLaren sandbagging?? They are on regular 1:18s and I'm not sure if they have an extra second to lower their times. Are they only focusing on race pace and reliability?

Kubica is fast and Ferrari cars are slow... And also McLaren..

Bardzo to ciekawe, że nadal wylewane są wiadra pomyj na RK ....a to że to tylko testy....a to że opony najbardziej miękkie....a to że się wygłupił, bo żaden team nie jechał na czas..... Przypominam ( zwłaszcza Brytolom) jak się srali z radości w ubiegłym tygodniu, kiedy to George wyskoczył z jazdą na pełnym gazie, żeby pokazać, jaki Williams jest super w tym sezonie! Jakoś nikt nie szczekał na George'a i nie mówił, że to tylko testy....i że to nijak ma się do wyścigów .....

It's good to see F1 YouTubers being recogised in the community.

During the off seasons many years ago I used to watch their gameplay videos on YouTube all the time, they've come a long way

It's so weird to see f1 youtubers being mentioned on the official f1 page

Awesome. Been a fan of Tiametmarduk for a couple years now.
