This vehicle was equipped with all the high performance D3 products to ensure big power gains over factory and our exclusive lineup of cooling systems to ensure zero drop off of performance when dealing with the extreme heat.

What is Extreme Super Lap?

Time attack events have enjoyed massive popularity around the world, starting from Japan where the events were conceived as a proving ground for street tuner cars. From the early battles at the Tsukuba race track all the way to an international recognition, the action packed events always attracted the best tuner cars and offered edge-of-the-seat racing action. As a result of the quick rise in popularity, tuners developed cars to beat the competitors, with some of those cars reaching international fame. The Middle East motorsports scene has been longing for a dynamic event like time attack for years and it wasnít until the recent times when Extreme Motorsports founder Abdulla Al Zaabi decided to introduce it in our region for the very first time under the Extreme Super Lap moniker.

The maiden Extreme Super Lap race event was held at the south configuration of the Yas Marina Circuit and was deemed an instant success by both the organizers and the participants. A great number of street and race cars provided exciting action while battling to clock their fastest lap times on one of the best race tracks in the world.

The format of the Extreme Super Lap is based on the time attack principles where a car is released onto the track and first performs a warm-up lap, followed by three flying laps and a cool-down lap. The best lap time is taken for the classification and special honor is given to either the fastest time of the day or a new lap record.

Race cars are divided into four main categories, namely Street, Super Street, Modified and Super Modified, according to the levels of modification and race preparation. Each class allows a different level of modification aimed at improving the carís on-track performance and safety is an important aspect of the carsí preparation.

Just a slight correction to the OP

The track is the Yas Marina in Abu Dhabi, not Dubai. Yas Marina is where they host the Formula 1 Grand Prix.
Congrats to Ahmed for the win and Extreme Performance for the success they're having across the board.
