Kuwaiti riders win MX championship at Losail.

MX 1 championship podium

The Kuwaiti rider Mohammed Jaffar clinched this afternoon the 2014 / 2015 Losail MX Championship in the MX1 category and his fellow Barak Al Jasmi got the title in the MX2.

Jaffar had some problems on Friday with his bike finishing in the fifth position in the first race and yesterday his bike was still not operational but he didn't have to worry because the title was his even without racing today.

" I am really glad to win this championship, as it was not easy to get this win, it was not easy and I am very happy because all the bike issues and troubles with my bike I kept them out and I managed to get the championship. There is a lot of work behind the rider that people don't know as they just see the rider but we have to travel and drive many hours, leave the family in each round to compete and get points to win the title, so winning the championship is really something big that makes me really proud of myself and makes my team and coach also proud of me. I would like to thank to Red Bull, Sun Garde, Adidas and Balooshi Racing Team for all their support during this championship' Jaffar said after his win."

Meshay Abou Shaibah also from Kuwait who finished in second position in the MX1 championship said: "First I would like to thank QMMF for this championship and all the support and also to Honda and Kuwait Racing for all the help. It is really good for me this second position and I am very happy."

Abdullah al Shatti also from Kuwait came third in the MX1 championship.

The winner in the MX2, Barak Al Jasmi ended the race very happy with his two wins over the weekend and his title in the MX2.

"I am really happy with this win and all the effort I put over four years of riding are now here in this victory and I am very happy to make it here in Qatar, at the Losail MX track. Thanks to QMMF for this amazing championship and also it is great to be here with the big guys of MXGP and ride on the same track as them. I also thank KTM Kuwait for all their support," Al Jasmi said.

The second position was claimed by Moath Al Ansari and Mohamed Al Hattab came in third overall.
