E K Kanoo Drag and Drift Nights set for Monday double-header at BIC

Plenty of thrills await motorsport fans at Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) on Monday (February 3) as “The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East” hosts the Ebrahim K Kanoo Drag and Drift Nights for a third straight week.

This unique and adrenaline-pumping event offers participants twice the chance to explore the limits of their very own cars or motorbikes within a safe and controlled environment.

Those who take part can either power their vehicles down BIC’s quarter-mile drag strip or test their oversteering and counter-steering skills while drifting around the circuit’s Vehicle Dynamics Area, or enjoy doing both!



BIC is a member of the prestigious National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Worldwide Network, and its drag strip is where some of the region’s best, World record-breaking drag racers go head to head. The Vehicle Dynamics Area is a specially configured venue at BIC’s car park, 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 exhilarating 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.
