Sirbb Circuit honors Al-Attiyah

sports1KUWAIT: The Sirbb Circuit honored Qatari rally champion Nasser Al-Attiyah on Thursday night for his achievements in 2015, as he is the WRC2 champion, Dakar champion, Middle East champion and cross country champion. Attiyah said that this year was a good and lucky year for him as he bagged four titles. “Through these achievement, we proved that Arab champions can rank on top of international championships in various sports,” he noted during the event.
Salah bin Eidan, Director of Sirbb Circuit, praised the achievements of Attiyah and noted that Attiyah is his idol in this sport as he is also a rally champion. “Attiyah cares about safety measures during the race and this is very important. I wish him luck in his next race in Oman and I hope he gets his 61st title to set a record,” he said.

Attiyah is also a champion shooter, in which he excels as well. “I like both sports – car racing and shooting – as both need concentration, and both need dedication as well,” he pointed out. Attiyah was driving a Ford since 2011, and only recently started driving a Skoda. Commenting on the shift, he stressed that both vehicles are good, but Qatar has shares in Volkswagen, so it’s easier with the sponsorship. At the end of the ceremony, Sheikh Mohammad Al-Attiyah, Director of Drag 965, presented an award to Nasser Al-Attiyah.
