Yas Marina Circuit sponsored Sportbike riders Mahmoud Tannir and Alan Boyter pulled off MotoGP double

Yas Marina Circuit-sponsored Sportbike riders Mahmoud Tannir and Alan Boyter from Dubai pulled off a remarkable double win and second place in the 600cc class of the National Superbike races at the MotoGP event in Qatar at the weekend.

 
Tannir won the class and Boyter came second in both races, in the process defeating several 1,000cc bikes with around 70 bhp more on tap. This double follows a spate of second and third-place finishes for the pair in the UAE Sportbike Championship series at Dubai Autodrome, where Tannir has consistently finished second in the last six races, with Boyter third in five of the six and fourth in the most recent event.
