1 Mins read

Ahmad Al Harthy has become the latest driver to switch from single-seaters to the Porsche Carrera Cup GB after signing for Red Line Racing in what is to be expected a multi-year deal.

Al Harthy becomes the first Arab driver to compete in the GB series and will be based in London during the season. “I come from a country that does not even have a race track,” says the Oman driver.

Despite the obvious disadvantage of nothing on bigger scale of karting in his home country he is no stranger to racing having spent three seasons racing in Formula Renault BARC, finishing the season in the runner-up spot in 2009.

“Porsche was always something we had our eyes on and this year is all about adapting to the championship. This is a long-term plan and I want to go to the Porsche Supercup eventually.” he admitted.

“Now it is time for a bigger challenge and signing with Red Line was very important because of the experience they have,” said Al Harthy, “I came to the UK to learn about racing.”

Team boss Simon Leonard commented “It’s fantastic to have Ahmad on board, we’ve got the infrastructure in place and we’re geared up to run six cars.”
