Cudlin wins first race in the drizzle at Losail International Circuit
Alex Cudlin won the first race of the third round of QIRRCH under the floodlights of Losail International Circuit. The weather conditions were not the perfect ones as there was some light rain during almost all the race. The poleman of the race, Cudlin, didn't had a good start with his Suzuki bike and Saeed Al Sulaiti riding a BMW lead the first four laps of the race with an excellent pace but his rhythm went down and Al Sulaiti ended in the fourth position.
In the middle of the race, Cudlin managed to catch Saeed and he was first almost all the race until the end. The second position of the podium was for the german rider Nina Prinz also with a Suzuki bike who started from the second place on the grid. It took her several laps to feel comfortable in the bike with the tricky track conditions but she managed to get a good rhythm from the seventh lap finishing second. Mishal Al Naimi with a Honda was the third rider to be in the podium.
Regarding the Losail Asian Road Racing Series, the winner was the Algerian Waled Benterki , who finished in a sixth position overall. The second place in the podium of LARRS was for Mohammad Reihan from Indonesia and Deepak Ravikumar from India was third in his category.
Trophies were given by Mr.Mohammed Saad Al Morraikhi, QMMF General Secretary.
Alex Cudlin - The race was unbelievable and I didn't think we would rode in that conditions. At the beginning of the race Saeed was really fast and I made sure I could keep my vision on him although I was not as fast as him. Then I realized at the middle of the race that I managed to catch him, so I went pass and create a big gap but Mishal catched me and then the rain appeared again and all was crazy again. I am really happy to win , it is good for my championship as Nina finished second so I have a good points lead on her and Mishal.
Due to the weather conditions the second race of QIRRCH has been cancelled
