Karters set for second round of sprints

Thu, 23 Nov 2017

Bahrain International Karting Circuit (BIKC) hosts the second round of the 2017/2018 Bahrain Karting Sprints Championship today in Sakhir.

The meeting will see action in both the Bahrain Rotax Mojo Max Championship (BRMMC) and the Bahrain Sodi Sprint SWS Championship (BSSWS).

The BRMMC is for Rotax kart owners and they compete in different classes. The BSSWS is an arrive-and-drive competition that has all participants racing on identical Sodi karts.

Action is set to be held along BIKC’s 1.414-kilometre Commission Internationale de Karting (CIK) Track. All are welcome to attend and cheer for the island’s top talent.

The BRMMC kicks things off with a practice session at 3pm. Qualifying will then be held from 4pm, with the Pre-Final set for 4.55pm and the Final scheduled for 6.15pm.

The BSSWS gets things going with qualifying at 3.335pm. The Pre-Final will then be held from 4.30pm and the Final will begin at 5.40pm.

All the racing will be followed by the podium ceremony.

This year’s BKSC is set to feature five rounds. The season-opener took place several weeks back, with Rashid Almuammari taking victory in the BRMMC and Yousef Khamiri winning IN the SSWS.

Round three is scheduled for January 5, round four on March 2 and the championship finale will be held on April 6.
