No lifting off November: Racing between the walls holds no fear for WTCR rookie Bin Khanen

Ahmed Bin Khanen isn’t fazed by the prospect of racing between the walls when he makes his debut in the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup.

Like his WTCR rivals, Bin Khanen has never raced on the 3.450-kilometre Jeddah Corniche Circuit’s all-new Short Track. However, he hopes his experience from the Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy (pictured) will help his progress aboard his Comtoyou Racing Audi RS 3 LMS.

“We always raced between concrete walls in the Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy and on much tighter circuits in fact so I really don’t mind this challenge and the Jeddah Corniche Circuit track looks really good,” said Bin Khanen, who will carry #24 on his Goodyear-equipped entry.

In terms of his targets for the WTCR Race of Saudi Arabia weekend, Bin Khanen said: “I want to finish as high as possible, but I want to finish clean. I know the competition will be very hard and while nobody expects me to be in the top three, I will give it my all.”
