Izzat then maintained his speed while sliding in and out of the top five position. In lap seven and eight, Izzat found his way at the lead position but fell two positions down in lap nine.

With April King taking lead in the final lap and prepping to make a dash, the last seconds of the nail-biting category saw Izzat storming into P1 before making a grand finish.

Izzat clocked in at 18’08:432s.

Commenting on the race, Izzat said, “I am very thankful that the setup of my machine was really good. Thanks to my team for that.”
