Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) is calling on school students from all across the kingdom to put on their thinking caps and help give a striking new identity to the circuit’s slowest, yet one of its most important, vehicles – the BIC sweeper.
BIC launches this campaign to bring some much-needed character to a crucial member of the team, which currently meanders around the circuit anonymously. This incredible workhorse travels an amazing 2,180 laps every year at an average speed of just 5kph.
Despite its heroic work as a crucial member of the BIC family, the sweeper sadly has no name.
All students are invited to give some life to the sweeper and join the competition, formulating a fitting name and an outstanding and colourful design. As BIC is an international venue, the name must be in English.
The winning name and design will be adapted for the size of the sweeper to get it ready for the upcoming Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix.
Furthermore, BIC will also be bringing the winning student to a special unveiling of the sweeper at BIC, a week before the Grand Prix, and he or she may even get a chance to ride in the new character.
The competition is open to school children in Bahrain, both primary and secondary students, of all ages and nationalities. Entries must be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and received by Thursday, March 5. Any entries received after this date will not be considered.
Entries will be judged by a panel at BIC and their decision will be final.
