YOUNG OMAR SINDI MAKES IMPRESSIVE START TO HIS MOTOR SPORTING CAREER
• Ambitious Saudi racer makes preparations for European debut in Valencia
JEDDAH (SAUDI ARABIA): Fourteen-year-old Saudi Arabian hopeful Omar Sindi has made a superb start to his journey to become a budding motor sporting star of the future.
The youngster will be bidding for success in this year’s IAME Series KSA, a professional karting championship being organised by The Track Jeddah and sanctioned by the SAMF.
He won the opening round and looked set to take a second victory in round two, only for a penalty to drop him down to second place, but Sindi is the current leader of the Juniors Championship. His target is to be competing in F4 by the time he’s 15.
As he makes final preparations for his next event – competing in the Juniors category at the Valencia Winter Cup 2023 on February 5th – he also recently claimed a first podium finish for a Saudi Arabian driver at the MENA Karting Championships, held in Muscat, Oman. Sindi finished third overall in the Mini MAX category.
“I started racing competitively last year,” said young Sindi. “I was nominated by the SAMF to represent the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the MENA Karting Cup in Oman and finished third in my class. I also compete regularly in UK events and am looking forward to my first European race.
“I would like to thank the SAMF for giving me the honour of representing my country. I would also like to thank my family for all the support then have given me, Hamza Dirani, my mentor in Jeddah, Jorge Vitorino, my mechanic and Abdullah El-Khereiji, my team-mate, and the rest of the Saudi team. I look forward to representing my country in future events.”
The IAME Series KSA is one of several karting series running in tandem around the world and is open to racers in competition karts powered by the IAME X30 engine.
Competitors must also have a valid licence authorised by the SAMF or the local ASN. The Juniors category is open to youngster between the ages of 12 and 15, with over-15s entering the Seniors section.
