As the readership of The Watercraft Journal continues to grow more diverse with each passing day (y’know, because it really does), we get more and more information pouring in from across the globe. Most recently, we received an update on the ongoing UAE Series (that’s the United Arab Emirates).
In the four month series – beginning in January and running through April, with six rounds divided between three rounds in Dubai and the other three in Abu Dhabi – has seen some fantastic sportsmanship and feats of athleticism. Most notably has been by Kuwait’s Mohammed “Cozmo” Al Baaz.
Cozmo has dominated the Pro Stock Runabout class aboard his 2014 Yamaha FZR SVHO, most recently winning his first place title in Round 4’s close course race held in Dubai, United Arab of Emirates. Up until this time, Cozmo had been leading in points throughout the first three rounds on his Stock class 2013 Sea-Doo RXP-X, but only decided to cross over to Yamaha mid-season.
Cozmo’s change to the FZR also earned Yamaha its first win in Stock class for the series. Built by Abdullah Burbayea and Yousef Al Busairy of ProRider Garage located in Kuwait (and of no relation to the bimonthly print publication). Equipped with parts from R&D, RIVA Racing, WORX and a few other tricks by ProRider Garage, Cozmo’s machine made short work of the field.
