He runs with a Honda CBR1000 prepared by the team Saudi Falcons, which is his property; Marchetti, however, was deployed by the powerful Ducati importer for the UAE, riding the 1199 Panigale R, the most extreme version, launched in recent days. To demonstrate the competitiveness Marcel Bode, general manager of Ducati UAE, has decided to deploy the driver from Bologna riding a bike completely standard, the experiment has shown excellent results: in Game 1 Marchetti is a bad start and had to recover, he At the last corner exceeded Shaiba snatching second place, but Arabic has passed its last straight.
Bin Laden, however, was clear, and a few hours later managed to win the second race 2, thus extending the streak of his victory, which already counted on four consecutive hits in the
Marchetti this time it’s a good start, struggled with Bin Laden for the first position until it came down in a curve, then he hung up the group of riders that had passed and after a furious brawl has had the upper hand, and cut the finish line second.

I hoped to make a surprise to Bin Laden, even though he had a fast bike, prepared according to the rules of the Sportbike category. But against Bin Laden is hard, the Americans had noticed before me … Seriously Abdulaziz is a good guy, serious and kind, and is very strong: I would not mind doing a few races in tandem with him. “
