2016 has been a busy year for 15 year old Logan Hannah having lived in the UAE for nearly 10 years she moved back to Scotland in May, where she was faced with the challenge of starting a new High School at Williamwood near Glasgow as well as continuing her karting career at the West of Scotland Karting Club’s Larkhall circuit with Duncan White’s Saltire Motorsport race team.

This has certainly been Logan’s most successful year to date with a 3rd place overall in the Al Ain Raceway Challenge Trophy, being signed to the Arden Young Racing Driver Academy, reaching the Finals of the Ginetta Junior Scholarship competition and winning the 2016 Karting Magazine Female Driver of the Year award.

So with the Hannah family spending the festive period together out in Dubai, it was inevitable that Logan would show up on track in the familiar colours of her former race team SodiKart Middle East who kindly organized for her to spend the day testing in one of their Rotax Senior Max karts at the Dubai Kartdome.

Logan quote: “It has been a great year for me moving back to the UK, having to adjust to the difficult track and weather conditions in Scotland so it was nice to be back lapping the Dubai Kartdome circuit again where it all started for me in 2013 in my first Junior SWS race. I really enjoyed my day testing with SodiKart Middle East and would like to especially thank Luigi and Vincent for taking such good care of me. I am moving up to race in Rotax Senior Max class in the UK next season so it was really useful to get in so many laps which will help me when I start practicing in my new Senior kart at Larkhall later in January although the grip level and temperature might be a bit different.”

Formula Gulf Academy

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.
