BIC to host E K Kanoo Drag, Drift Nights on Monday
05 : 10 PM - 10/12/2017
Manama, Dec. 10 (BNA): As the winter chills continue to creep in, the temperatures remain red hot at Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) as it hosts another exciting edition of E K Kanoo Drag and Drift Nights in Sakhir on Monday (Editor’s note: December 11).

Sponsored by E K Kanoo, Drag and Drift Night gives the chance for drag racers and drifters to take their very own cars or motorbikes and push them to their limit in a safe and controlled environment.

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 Monday’s drag racing. For the drifting, a special course along BIC’s car park five will stage all the action.

Both of Monday’s activities can be enjoyed for a single fee of BD10. Participation in just the drag racing or just 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. Spectators can purchase tickets for BD2 apiece.

Also as part of the drag racing programme, BIC is offering the immensely popular 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 Xperience costs BD40 per person.

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