Al Faisal al Zubair
Lechner Racing Middle East
Just recently having won the Silver Cup at the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East, Al Faisal al Zubair is looking forward to making a big step in his racing career by joining the Porsche Super Cup with Lechner Racing Middle East. The just 19-year-old who was born in Muscat/Oman, started early on in karting before making his way up through some junior single seater categories in Great Britain. In 2016 he was already part of British Formula 3, from where quite a lot of top drivers made it into a professional career, even up to Formula 1.
Already in his first tests with a Porsche GT3 car he impressed everybody with his talent and his steep learning curve. His driver coach, well experienced Porsche Supercup driver Ryan Cullen, who by the way will also be part of this season’s Supercup line-up for Lechner, rates him as a very valuable addition to the grid. „He is one of the most promising drivers from the Middle East and could really help to attract a lot of additional interest to the sport in this region.“ Al Zubair himself knows “that for sure I have to learn a lot this season, getting used to new circuits and the very high level of competition in this series. But I am looking forward to the challenge and I am really glad to have the support of such a great team as Lechner Racing.”
