BIC set for Drag and Drift Nights
Ebrahim K Kanoo Drag and Drift Nights returns to action today at Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) in Sakhir.
Those who take part will have a chance to drive their cars or ride their motorbikes down BIC’s world-class drag strip or around the circuit’s Vehicle Dynamics Area, or even both!
The double-header remains one of the most popular activities on offer at “The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East”.
BIC’s quarter-mile strip hosts the drag racing action.
BIC is a member of the prestigious National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Worldwide Network, and it is where some of the region’s best, World record-breaking drag racers go head to head in the national championship.
Meanwhile, the drifting will take place at the circuit’s Vehicle Dynamics Area, which is a specially configured venue at BIC’s car park that has been surrounded by safety barriers.
It is the largest open tarmac area in Bahrain.
Registration on Monday begins at 5pm and will be open until 9pm, while the action will be held from 6pm to 11pm.
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.
