New championship designed to create next generation of Emirati stars on world stage
 
 
Abu Dhabi, UAE, 25th January 2020:   Mohamed Al Yammahi is the early leader of the 2020 UAE Formula 4 Championship, the new series launched by Abu Dhabi International Marine Sports Club (ADIMSC) to create the next generation of Emirati powerboat racing stars.
 
Victory in race two following a third place finish in the opening race off the Abu Dhabi Breakwater saw Al Yammahi take an overall two-point lead in the four-round championship at the weekend.
 
Sultan Al Falahi is his closest challenger following successive second place finishes, with race one winner Sultan Mazrouei in third after a penalty imposed for a false start in race two dropped him from the lead to fourth.
 
The UAE Formula 4 Championship, based on 20-lap races, represents the first step on the ladder into Formula powerboat racing, as ADIMSC looks to develop a new pool of talent to keep the UAE capital at the top of the sport in future years.
 
Team Abu Dhabi captured four powerboat racing world titles last season out of 11 secured since Guido Cappellini took charge as team manager in February 2015. 
 
Cappellini was among the onlookers at the start of the new championship yesterday, as was the team's reigning F2 world champion, Rashid Al Qemzi.
 
“We have launched the championship to create a link between local races and the global Formula powerboat series,” said Salem Al Rumeithi, General Manager of ADIMSC.
 
“Our aim is to discover and develop the best young Emirati talent. The championship is a vital part of their education, and the first step towards creating a new generation of UAE champions on the world stage. 
 
“These are early days, but already there is a lot of interest in the championship from within the UAE and other Gulf countries, and we expect it to grow quickly.”

1. Mohamed Al Yammahi 32pts

4. Hamdan Al Maflahi 17pts
