Oman: Omani star Ahmad Al Harthy presented with 2017 Champion trophy

Muscat racing driver Ahmad Al Harthy and the Oman Racing team were officially crowned 2017 Blancpain Endurance Cup Pro-Am champions on Friday, 24th November, during the star-studded annual SRO Awards evening in Paris.

Joining the great and good of international GT endurance racing, Omani sportsman Al Harthy and team-mate Jonny Adam received their stunning trophies at the historic Palais Brongniart in the French capital.

Capping off a truly incredible year in grand style, Al Harthy then had the immense privilege of being welcomed by the Oman Ambassador to France, His Excellency Dr Moosa Jaffer Hassan, to the Oman Embassy in Paris.

“What an amazing evening, an incredible awards ceremony and the absolute perfect end to Oman Racing’s best ever season”, said the Sultanate’s number one racing driver, “I have to thank everyone who made this possible, winning the Pro-Am championship is a huge achievement for us and also for sport in Oman as a whole.

“I am so honoured to have been welcomed by His Excellency Dr Moosa Jaffer Hassan to the Oman Embassy in Paris, it was such a proud moment for me and everyone associated with, and part of, Oman Racing.”

As well as the awards ceremony itself, Friday night’s occasion also marked a special celebration for the 25th anniversary of GT racing which tied in very neatly too with the 10th anniversary year of Oman Racing.

Following swiftly on from the Paris celebrations, Al Harthy headed home where he was received at Oman International Airport by His Excellency Rashad Al Hinai, Undersecretary of the Oman Ministry of Sports Affairs. Also welcoming their champion home were Al Harthy’s other key sponsors Oman Air, National Bank of Oman, Omantel, Barr Al Jissah and Amouage.

“It was so special to be welcomed home by all of my incredible sponsors and, of course, His Excellency Rashad Al Hinai when we touched back down in Oman”, said Al Harthy, “Oman Ministry of Sports Affairs has been such a key part of my career and I certainly wouldn’t be celebrating the success we have this year without its support. I am so thankful for all of the incredible backing Oman Racing receives, this championship is for everyone.”

Happy Birthday! However everytime I read or see his name, automatic my mind would read it in a thick Spanish accent like Alonso hehehe

Nice Birthday present for him: let him free, so he could find a new job!

Not the best f1 driver, but this overtake on Bottas resides in the memory even today.

It's good to see him staying alert on a street circuit.

Top class pundit🤔 and you find the one over take he’s done in his short career. There was a reason it was short 😂

Oh hey I didn't Palmer has the same birthdate as mine ! 😮

Everyone is gonna remember Palmer because of the “Karma!” thing with Alonso

Thats F1 ?¡ jajajajaja you mean... they are just warming tires right?¡

Pretty good at crashing more like...

Have him in the commentary box instead.

"WHERE IS PALMER?"

Should have been given longer to prove but hay ho that’s the sport!

"Where is Palmer?"

The Best that I have seen!!!

Something's terribly wrong with the audio panning of this video. My ears died and I thought my right earphone stopped working. Did some reason the audio is panned to left in the video
