Emirati racer continues impressive debut season in Euro 4 Championship Race
Italy – UAE – 20th September 2023: At the Italian home of motor racing, the famous Monza circuit known
worldwide as the ‘Temple of Speed’, the 15 year old Emirati again put himself on the rookie podium after strong
drives in all three of the races, over the extended weekend meeting.
Al Dhaheri, racing for the Prema team, is one of the youngest competitors on the grid, and over the weekend
brought his car home for collecting points scoring top ten finishes. His podium follows on from the last race at
Mugello where he also made the rookie podium.
Commenting on the race Rashid said; “It is an honour to represent the UAE at one of the world’s most famous race
tracks. We are really pleased with the way the season is progressing and for my first season in single seaters for
me to be in the top ten overall standings is a great achievement. We know that there is a lot more
to come but
this year has been about learning single seater race craft, and showing that we are very fast.”
The Euro 4 Championship works alongside the Italian Formula 4 series and is designed to provide further racing
experience for junior drivers. The teams run the same Tatuus T-421 cars powered by a Autotecnica Motori-
supplied Abarth engine and run on Pirelli tyres.
“These additional races are providing me with a lot more experience” added Al Dhaheri. “In the races the
difference in lap times between first and tenth can be less then half a second, so it is all about getting track time
and learning racing strategy. This weekend I had some incredibly close wheel-to-wheel battles which means that
next time out I will be even more competitive.”
The next Euro 4 Championship Race is on the 22nd October 2023 at the Barcelona circuit, but before that Al
Dhaheri will be back at Mugello on the 1st October for the next round of the Italian F4 Championship.
