A five-year sponsorship contract with Abu Dhabi Racing for its star driver Amna Al Qubaisi to race in F4, F3, F2

ABU DHABI (UAE) – Renoir Consulting, a world leader in implementation consulting, has signed a five-year sponsorship contract with Abu Dhabi Racing (ADR) for its star driver Amna Al Qubaisi to race in F4, F3, F2 and have also secured the rights to eventually sponsor her to race in the pinnacle of motorsport racing, Formula 1.

Amna, the first Emirati to win the UAE Rotax Max Challenge in season 2016-17 with Daman Speed Academy, is now poised to make a big career move starting with Formula4 racing in Europe.

Her fans can expect details of the final plans to be unveiled in the near future.

Renoir Group CEO Krishna Paupamah said: “We are excited to collaborate with Abu Dhabi Racing, and with Amna Al Qubaisi personally, in order to support her to achieve her full potential in motorsport.

“We are looking forward to the exciting journey ahead, beginning with Amna’s participation in the Formula 4 Championship in Europe this season.”

Renoir Group traces its origins back to 1994, when Renoir Consulting was founded, with a mission to support clients in achieving rapid, significant, measurable and sustainable improvements in their operational, and therefore their business, performances.

Tom Verkooijen, Renoir Consulting’s Middle East CEO added: “Our close involvement and partnership with Amna and ADR excites me both professionally as well as personally. As a true petrolhead and amateur racing driver, it is great to follow Amna's progression through the racing ranks up close. Having spent more than 10 years in the UAE, I'm very passionate as putting this great nation on the map as a supplier of global racing talents.”

Having delivered more than 500 projects for clients across all major industries in over 40 countries, Renoir Consulting has grown into a world leader in implementation consulting. It boasts a global footprint and employs more than 300 highly trained consultants.

Founded in 2010, Renoir Consulting Middle East currently has more than 50 consultants involved in business improvement engagements across the region, helping clients to substantially improve their bottom-line results.

An elated Amna said: “I am proud and happy to be sponsored by such an important group like Renoir Consulting.

“My F4 debut will be a huge learning curve for me and I’m looking forward to starting the season. I will give it my best shot to make the team and Renoir Consulting proud. More importantly, I want to make my country proud and hence will spare no effort when out there on the track racing against some of the best in the business.

“Having said that, I would like to thank Renoir Consulting for believing in me and providing the opportunity to expand my racing career.”

Daman Speed Academy and ADR Managing Director Khaled Al Qubaisi added: “Signing this agreement with Renoir means a lot to us, and to Amna of course, as it draws the roadmap for the next levels in Amna’s single seater career.”

“It is indeed a very proud moment for us as we have seen Amna progress in her racing career over the years, which has now resulted in her stepping up to F4 racing, and hopefully to F1 sometime in the foreseeable future.”

Amna is the first to not just represent the UAE but also Arab women in general at the IAME X30 International Finals at Le Mans in France and at the Rotax Max Grand Finals in Portugal last year.
