Champions were crowned on the final day of the Dubai Autodrome Motorsport Club (DAMC) organised by NGK Racing Series at Yas Marina Circuit. At the end of races, Costas Papantonis was crowned champion in Class 1, Al-Qassim Hamidaddin won his first UAE championship in Class 2 and Alex Annivas clinched the Clio Cup title in the double points
The final two races of the NGK Racing Series saw Dragon Racing Ferrari driver Thani Hanna winning both times out, but the real focus was behind him where Class 2 and Clio Cup titles would be decided in the very last race of the season. For Papantonis it was a mere formality as he had to start the race to claim the championship in Class 1 at the wheel of his Gulf Petrochem SEAT.
Papantonis said, â€œWe had a good season where the car was always good. I need to thank my sponsors Gulf Petrochem who made this campaign possible and of course my family. Also to Dubai Autodrome for putting on this championship in a professional and well run manner. See you next season.â€
