Update to yesterday's story about Rashid Al Dhaheri
The National staff | November 1, 2013
Yesterday Ali Khaled provided a piece for us on 5 year old Emirati karter Rashid Al Dhaheri, who idolises Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso.
Today we have a fun update to report, via Ali:
"Later that day the little man got to meet his hero as well as Felipe Massa, and by all accounts both were brilliant with him, taking the time to chat and encourage him. Rashid, according to his father, was overwhelmed. "A dream came true"."
We also have some cool photos of the meeting, thanks to Ali:
