Bahrain International Circuit (BIC), ‘The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East’, has set the stage for another exciting year-round campaign of activities for race enthusiasts to enjoy.
Amongst them is the E K Kanoo Drag and Drift Night on Monday in Sakhir.
Sponsored by Ebrahim K Kanoo and powered by Motor City, E K Kanoo Drag and Drift Night calls on drag racing and drifting enthusiasts alike to take their very own cars or motorbikes and push them to their limit in a safe and controlled environment at BIC.
BIC’s world-class quarter-mile drag strip, which is a member of the prestigious National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Worldwide Network, will play host to Monday’s drag racing. For the drifting, a special course along BIC’s car park will stage all the action.
Safety standards of the highest level are followed during the evening’s events for both drivers and spectators alike.
Both of Monday’s activities can be enjoyed for a single fee of BD10. Participation in just the drag racing or just the drifting costs BD7. Registration can be done on site from 5pm, and the action will be held from 6pm to 11pm.
Those who would like to experience the drag or drift as a passenger can get into a friend’s car for an additional BD4 for each event. Spectators can purchase tickets for BD2 apiece.
Also as part of the drag racing programme, BIC will be offering the immensely popular Dragster Xperience to all those in attendance.
This is one of the circuit’s most unique activities, as it gives participants a taste of pure speed as they are taken from zero to 100kph in just one second while seated in a Top Dragster. The Dragster Xperience costs BD40 per person.
