Summer is going to be a busy period for Rashid Al Dhaheri as he partakes in four race weekends in Italy, at the sport’s most famous venues: Lonato, Siena and Ottobiano.
During June and July, Rashid will participate in four karting race weekends at the above mentioned venues, with Rashid also undertaking an intensive training course in Naples held under the auspices by the Italian federation ACI CSAI. The course will be conducted by Ferrari drivers.
June will see Rashid taking part simultaneously in two Italian championships for the remainder of the season: Easykart and Championskart Parolin Academy where the six years old will be permitted to drive more powerful 60cc karts.
This will further help Rashid to develop his skills while learning to adapt his driving style and technique to new tracks. Racing with the best young drivers in Italy is essential to develop his race craft and build experience as part of the ongoing development of his unique talent.
The UAE’s ‘Little Alonso’ has captured the hearts and imagination of sports fans in his home country, who follow his exploits and wish him well in his karting programme.
