Rashid Al Tayer hopes that one world championship triumph with Team Abu Dhabi can help inspire him to another in Portugal.
Rashid Al Tayer has set his sights on victory in the Runabout GP1 category, the blue riband event of the UIM-ABP Aquabike World Championship, which launches its 2019 season in Portimao.
“It was great to be part of that success, and now I’m looking forward to returning to jet ski racing in Portugal,” he said. “I’ve been preparing for the start of the new season for four months.
“We’ve built a completely new jet ski with a new engine, and I want to make a winning start to the championship. But I need to save the bike for the next round because my target this season is to win the world title.”

Team Abu Dhabi is also represented in Portimao by reigning UIM-ABP Aquabike freestyle champion Rashed Al Mulla, unbeaten in the last six Grand Prix, and Salman AlAwadhi in the Ski Division GP1.
Portimao is currently a significant focus of attention for the team which is based at Abu Dhabi International Marine Sports Club. Next weekend reigning UIM F1H2O world team champions Shaun Torrente and Thani Al Qemzi begin the defence of their title there while Mohamed AlMehairbi and Rashed AlRemeithi will be chasing victory in the F4-S Trophy.
