Dubai: Emirati driver Mohamed Al Mutawaa has been urged to keep working hard and setting new targets to build on his success last season as a double title winner in the FIA Middle East Rally Championship. Mohammed bin Sulayem, President of the Automobile and Touring Club of the UAE, presented Al Mutawaa with the 2WD and Junior trophies he won in the 2014 Middle East series.

“We’re all proud of Mohammed for the way he has developed as a driver, and as an individual, and I’m sure he will go on to win many more titles,” said Sulayem.

“The most important things he must do now are to continue to work hard to improve again, and set himself new targets to focus on and work towards in the future.”

Shaikh Khalid bin Faisal Al Qassimi, Chairman of Abu Dhabi Racing said: “Mohammed is an excellent example to young Emiratis of what can be achieved if they are dedicated and prepared to work hard, and learn how to develop their ability. He deserves his chance on the Junior WRC this season and I’m sure he will go on to much more success in the future.” Al Mutawaa will become the first Emirati driver to contest the Junior World Rally Championship as a reward for his performances over the last two seasons with Abu Dhabi Racing.

Al Mutawaa became the first Arab to be accepted into the FIA Institute Young Driver Excellence Academy in 2012, with ATCUAE sponsorship. He then won a place in the Abu Dhabi Racing team during a three-day selection staged in conjunction with Citroen Racing at Yas Marina Circuit.
