BAHRAIN International Circuit (BIC) hosts the Ebrahim K Kanoo Drag and Drift Night for the second straight week today in Sakhir.
This is one of the most popular activities on offer at “The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East”.
It gives participants the chance to take their very own cars or motorbikes and push them to their limit either down the drag strip or around a drifting course. Those looking for twice the action can even take part in both.
BIC’s world-class quarter-mile strip will host the drag runs. The strip is a member of the prestigious National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Worldwide Network, and it is where some of the region’s best drag racers go head to head in the national championship.
The drifting will take place at BIC’s Vehicle Dynamics Area. It is a specially configured facility at BIC’s car park that has been surrounded by safety barriers and which provides the largest open tarmac area in Bahrain.
Both the drag and the drifting can be enjoyed for a single fee of BD10.500. Participation in just the drag racing or just the drifting costs BD7.500. 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 participant’s car for an additional BD4. Spectators can purchase tickets for BD2 apiece.
Also as part of the evening’s drag racing programme, BIC is offering the immensely thrilling Dragster Xperience.
This is one of the circuit’s most unique and ultimate-adrenaline 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 Experience costs BD42.
Safety standards of the highest level are followed at all times during the evening’s events for both drivers and spectators alike.
