Sean McIntosh secured a pair of top-six points finishes in Dubai Sunday to promote Team Canada back into the top-ten of the A1 Grand Prix of Nations.

McIntosh followed up a good fifth place in the opening sprint race with sixth overall at the end of the feature.

"This hasn't been our strongest circuit as a package but to come away with a fifth and sixth place finish isn't a bad result," said McIntosh.

"The Sprint result was good for us in terms of setting us up for the Feature race where I made another good start. We were struggling a bit with pace in the early stages and then I was hit by Tomas Enge as the safety car warnings were coming out. I didn't know what was wrong with the car initially but it was damage to the rear and a puncture.

"We had a pretty good pit-stop and after that it was really a case of damage limitation. I'm sure we could have finished a bit higher up had the race been longer but it was good to put two points scoring runs together and strengthen our position in the standings.

"There's only eight points separating us from Team Portugal in sixth so things are pretty close heading into the next six events."
