Porsche Carrera Cup GB regular Ahmad Al Harthy has announced he will be racing with the Oman Air Racing Team in the upcoming Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East.

The 30 year old came third in the Pro-Am1 standings in this year's GB series and will be hoping to use this experience in the Middle East series. Competing on the most prominent tracks in the Gulf region, the championship includes races on the support bill of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in November.

Al Harthy will once again race with the Oman Air Racing Team and will be given the unique opportunity to race the brand new 2012 version of the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car, which will be raced for the first time ever in the Middle East championship.

Al Harthy said: “This is fantastic news for the Oman Air Racing Team. We've had an amazing season in the UK championship and now we have a chance to race at home in the Middle East, it's a wonderful opportunity and I'm so grateful to all of my sponsors for helping to make this happen.

“Continuing to race over the next few months will help to keep me sharp, something that will be really important ahead of the 2012 championship in Britain – if we have the chance to go back next year of course! Porsche GT3 Cup Middle East has grown rapidly over the last couple of years, it's very well organised and I'm delighted to be part of it. We intend to proudly fly the flag for Oman.

 “It's certainly a great honour to be one of the first drivers in the world to sample the brand new 2012 model of the Porsche 911. The car I've raced in the UK this year has been incredible to drive, any improvement on that will be just sensational. I can't wait for the first test.”
