Tannir has been in scintillating form all season, finishing on the podium in each of the six races, before sealing the championship in its final round.

“My performances were really good this year which tells me I still have some time to give it all and challenge myself some more,” said the Honda rider.

“I’m motivated as ever and want to have some new challenges next year, but for now it’s time to relax a bit and enjoy my time with the family away pushing myself all the time.”

Tannir, who lives in Dubai, went into the final round with a commanding 53-point lead and needed only to finish on the podium to secure the trophy, making for a less tense race day.

“We had a huge gap in the points that made it a lot easier to handle. I really wanted to end it with a win and that is where the pressure came from. But it was a good pressure, the one that makes you outperform yourself,” he said.

In an ultra competitive 600 cc competition, Tannir’s victory makes it a third title in five years, but it’s his latest triumph that the Lebanese rates as his greatest.

“It feels incredible. I really set-up my campaign from the summer by training in Europe on a few tracks and also pushing myself hard in fitness training,” he said.

“I wanted my third title so bad and I gave it everything. It felt just incredible to win and I think it is the best one between my three titles.”
