The Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) is giving motorsport enthusiasts twice the thrill with its latest home of the Ebrahim K Kanoo Drag and Drift Nights – one of the most popular public activities available at “The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East” – today in Sakhir.
The event gives participants the opportunity to take their own car or motorbike and push them to their limits either on BIC’s world-class drag strip, around the circuit’s Vehicle Dynamics Zone, or the of them.
The action takes place from 8 p.m. on Monday evening until 1 a.m. the next morning. The quarter-mile BIC strip is considered one of the finest in all of drag racing and is part of the prestigious worldwide network under the banner of the US-based National Hot Rod Association (NHRA).
For drifting, the BIC Vehicle Dynamics Area is a specially configured location in the BIC parking lot which has been surrounded by security barriers. It is the largest open tarmac area in Bahrain and a great place for drifters to show off their skills.
Drag and drift can be enjoyed for a single rate of BD11. Participating only in the drag race or only in the drift costs 8 BD. Registration of participants will be done on site from 7 p.m.
Those wishing to experience drag or drift as a passenger can ride in a participant’s car for an additional BD4,500. Spectators can purchase tickets online from BIC official website bahraingp.com for BD2 each.
Tickets for children 12 and under are BD1 each. In addition to Drag and Drift, the Dragster Experience, also known as “the world’s fastest ride”, is also available. Fans will have the chance to taste pure speed by going from zero to 100 km/h in just one second, seated in a Top Dragster.
The Dragster experience is available at BD44 for the first passenger while the second passenger can benefit from a 50% discount. All safety protocols must be followed at all times during the evening events, for both participants and spectators.
