The opening round of the 2014- 2015 NGK Racing Series took place at Yas Marina Circuit on Saturday, which produced two intriguing races that saw McLaren, Porsche and Ferrari battle it out for top honours while there was also close action in the UAE Touring Cars class as well as the Clio Cup race-within-a-race.
The big winner on the day in Abu Dhabi was Gautam Singhania in the Dragon Racing Ferrari, winning both races ahead of Fred Fatien second in the sister car, and Bashar Mardini taking third place in his Porsche.
In the Touring Car category, it was a good day for the Gulf Petrochem team with Costas Papantonis topping Class 1 in his SEAT in both races.
