BIC to host exciting E K Kanoo drag and drift night




Manama, March 9 (BNA)– Bahrain International Circuit (BIC), “The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East”, will be opening its doors to all speed enthusiasts Monday (March 10) for the Ebrahim K Kanoo Drag qand Drift Night, powered by Motor City.

Drag racing and drifting lovers of all skill levels will be putting their abilities to the test in their very own cars or motorbikes.

The hugely popular activity is sponsored by Ebrahim K Kanoo and is powered by Motor City. Scores of fans turn up at each event either to take part or watch others in action.

BIC’s world-class quarter-mile drag strip, which is a member of the prestigious National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Worldwide Network, will play host to all the drag racing. For the drifting, a special course along BIC’s car park will host the action.

Safety standards of the highest level are followed at all times during the evening’s festivities, ensuring that both drivers and spectators can enjoy the action with peace of mind.

As part of the drag racing programme, BIC will also be offering the immensely popular Dragster Xperience. This is one of the circuit’s most unique and sought-after activities, as it gives participants a taste of pure adrenaline 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.

Also on Monday night, drifters will be giving their all as they take on the sharp turns of a challenging course. Their maneuvering and car control skills will be put to the test as they attempt to swerve and powerslide across the tarmac in the least possible time.

Both of Monday’s activities can be enjoyed for a single fee of BD10. Participation in just the drag racing or the drifting costs BD7. 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 friend’s car for an additional BD4 for each event.

All vehicles must go through mandatory safety checks before being allowed to take part.

Spectators can purchase tickets for BD2 apiece.

All the action on the strip can be enjoyed from BIC’s Batelco Grandstand, where fans will have the most comprehensive view of the straight. Those watching the drifting can be seated at a grandstand alongside the course.
