BAHRAIN Airport Services (BAS) motorsport team is all set to battle for podium places, pride, and bragging rights today in the six-hour race of the Bahrain Karting Enduro Championship (BKEC) at Bahrain International Karting Circuit (BIKC) in Sakhir.
BAS have four entrants in the second round of the 2019-2020 BKEC season.
Headlining their challenge will be the BAS Pro team, spearheaded by talented BAS motorsport ambassador Lewis Smith.
The three other squads will be competing in the Corporate class, and they include an all-female squad, making for the most dynamic roster of drivers in the event.
BAS CEO Salman Al Mahmeed has given his full support to the team which is being managed by BAS COO Tony Smith.
“We are extremely proud of the staff that have been committed to training for the event and the only all-female team entry, which is a fantastic achievement from all the women,” said Smith.
Leading the Corporate teams are Mohammed Faqihi and Ahmed Kooheji.
The other drivers include Mahmood Saati, Ziyad Khalifa, Rene Mader, Dylan Campos, Don Vinura, Saud Alshater, Mohammed Alansari. Their team assignments will be determined just prior to the start of the race.
The ladies’ squad consists of six members – Maryam Al Qassimi, Jeiel Macaraan, Marwa Mandeel, Fatima Mohamed Zainudeen, Alanoud Alalwi and Christina Anieliesa.
BAS are hoping to build on their success from the opening round of the BKEC, where their duo of Smith and Ahmed Abduljalil claimed a podium place in the Pro class at the end of a gruelling three-hour battle.
