The Daily Tribune –

The first Bahrain ProAm 1,000, a groundbreaking GT endurance event dedicated to ProAm cars, has been rescheduled from its original date later this month to next year.

This was announced yesterday by Driving Force Events and Bahrain International Circuit (BIC).

The meeting was set to become the only global GT endurance race open exclusively to ProAm and Am driver combinations, with no Pro combinations permitted.

The race was set to take place on January 29 over 1,000km/185 laps along BIC’s 5.412-kilometre Grand Prix track, open to GT3, GT4 and Cup classes.

“BIC and Driving Force Events have decided to postpone the 2022 Bahrain ProAm 1,000, scheduled for later this month,” said a statement.

“The inaugural event will now take place in early 2023.

“Both parties are committed to establishing this innovative series as a long-term, major fixture in the global endurance calendar.

“Whilst there has been strong interest from teams to participate in the race, global logistical difficulties and the Covid-19 situation across many countries where teams are based do not present the optimum conditions to host an inaugural event of this nature.

It has therefore been decided to postpone the event to next year.

“Driving Force events and BIC look forward to launching this brand new event alongside an impressive lineup of teams and drivers.”

Driving Force Events is the promoter of the Gulf 12 Hours
