Muscat: Ahmad Al Harthy, the reigning Blancpain Endurance Cup Pro-Am Champion, will compete in the new Silver Cup class this year.
Returning to the world’s biggest GT endurance racing championship for the sixth season, the Muscat sportsman’s grade has been changed, from Bronze to Silver, following last year’s title win. He will now be competing with his trusty Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 car.
Al Harthy said, “We come into 2018 off the back of an absolutely incredible season last year for Oman Racing. To win the Pro-Am championship in Blancpain was a dream come true, especially in the year we celebrate the 10th anniversary of Oman Racing. It was the culmination of a lot of hard work.”
He further added, “We have an exciting new challenge awaiting us this year and it’s something we’re looking forward to. As ever, the level of competition is going to be high and the Silver Cup will be a very closely contested championship."
The racer also officially launched, his and Oman Racing Team’s, 2018 motor racing programme at the Barr Al Jissah resort in Muscat this morning.
