BIC offers motorsport delights

ManamaBahrain International Circuit (BIC) is set to stage another exciting event in the E K Kanoo Drag and Drift Night tonight in Sakhir.

The event allows drag racing and drifting enthusiasts to take their own cars or motorbikes and push them to their limit in a safe and controlled environment.

The BIC’s world-class quarter-mile drag strip is a member of the prestigious National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Worldwide Network and plays host to tonight’s drag racing. While for the drifting, a special course along BIC’s car park will stage all the action.

Safety standards of the highest level are followed at all times during the evening’s events for both drivers and spectators alike.

Both activities can be enjoyed for a single fee of BD10, while participation in just the drag racing or just the drifting costs BD7 and registration can be done on site from 5pm, with the action 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 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 Xperience costs BD40 per person. 

More information is available on the circuit’s official website, www.bahraingp.cpm , or call the BIC Hotline on +973-17-450000.
