To mark a decade of a successful career on the international racing circuit, Oman’s ace racing driver Ahmad Al Harthy announced his motorsport programme for 2017 as well the as the rebranding of his team’s name to Oman Racing at a special ceremony on Wednesday.
‘Pro-Am’ title bid in Blancpain Endurance Cup, to be held in Monza, Italy, in April will be the highlight of this year’s programme.
Continuing his excellent relationship with Aston Martin, again piloting an Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3, the Omani will be partnered throughout 2017 by ‘works’ driver Jonny Adam, who has been an integral part of Oman Racing for the past two years.
Al Harthy said: “This year we celebrate 10 years of Oman Racing and what better way to do that than by revealing our most exciting season yet”, which marked the first time Oman Racing has conducted a pre-season unveiling with the race car actually present in the Sultanate. I’m thrilled to be racing with Jonny [Adam] as my team-mate again and, of course, with Aston Martin,” he said.
The squad will also participate in the Michelin GT3 Le Mans Cup support race to the Le Mans in June and Gulf 12 Hours in Abu Dhabi.
