At the 2014 ASN Canadian National Karting Championships in Mont-Tremblant there was a new face on the Rotax Micro-Max grid, Georgie Zouein. The youngster who now calls Dubai in the United Arab Emirates home, made the continental trip back to his home country to compete for a Canadian Championship.
Now back in the UAE Zouein is competing in another National title and he kicked off with a victory at the Al Ain Raceway, host of two Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals in the past six years.
After struggling in early going, Zouein advanced up to fifth in the PreFinal and a very strong performance in the Final earned him the victory in the Rotax Micro-Max division that fielded 18 competitors.
While he wasn’t able to back it up with a second victory due to an accident in the heats, Zouein finished fifth in Race 2 and enters the next round of the championship within earshot of the title.
