In a highly entertaining race 1, veteran driver Rudi

Mihaldinecz used all his experience to take victory and led

the race from pole position, but a mistake on lap 4 allowed

series debutant Ben Jelf to take the lead which he held

onto until lap 12 when the yellow flag was raised to allow

race marshals to remove the stationary Max Stilz.

At the restart on lap 16 Mihaldinecz immediately jumped

Jelf to retake the lead, going on to win the 20-lap race by

5.22s with Jelf in pursuit but coming up short.

The middle order produced a great scrap before and

after the yellow, Stilz running in third from Whittle until

both were passed on lap 9 by Al Fahim. The yellow flag

bunched up the pack with Whittle making up a place after

Al Fahim hooked and dropped to sixth, with Tom Chiappe

also taking advantage and getting the better of Mohamed

Al Mehairbi to move up and take fourth.

It has been a highly competitive season with four drivers

and teams grabbing Grand Prix titles and six drivers taking

at least one race win; Pedro Fortuna took the Grand Prix

victory for Team Sweden in Portugal, Max Stilz completing

the win double in London for Blaze Performance, Abu

Dhabi’s Mohamed Al Mehairbi winning in China and Sam

Whittle winning for F1 Atlantic last time out.
