Karters set for heated battles in national sprints at BIKC

Bahrain International Karting Circuit (BIKC) is all geared up to host an action-packed fifth round of the 2018/2019 Bahrain Karting Sprint Championship (BKSC) on Friday (February 8).

Racing is set to feature in both the Bahrain Rotax Mojo Max Challenge (BRMMC) and the Bahrain Sodi Sprint World Series (BSSWS).

With the BKSC headed into its final three meetings of the season, the fight for wins, podium places and valuable championship points is set to intensify. These heated battles are set to be held along BIKC’s world-renowned 1.414-kilometre Commission Internationale de Karting (CIK) Track.

Many of the Kingdom of Bahrain’s best karters will be suiting up for the event.

The BSSWS is set to get things underway on Friday. Drivers can sign in from 8am. Qualifying follows at 9.45am, and the Pre-Final at 10.05am. The Final then flags off at 10.35am.

That will be followed by action in the BRMMC, with drivers signing in from 11am.

The BRMMC will see racing in five different age categories, including Micro (eight to 11 years old), Mini (10 to 13 years old), Junior (12 to 15 years), Max (14 years old and above) and the Max-Masters (32 years old and above).

They will all be on the tarmac in karts with sealed Rotax125cc EVO engines.

The practices will be from 1.05pm, followed by the qualifying sessions from 1.29pm. The Pre-Finals then begin from 2.05pm.

That will set the stage for the Mirco and Mini Final at 3.35pm, followed by the Junior Final at 3.55pm. The Max and Max-Masters Final wraps things up at 4.30pm.

This year’s BRMMC will crown two winners at the end of the season: the first is the drivers’ champion and the other is the entrant’ champion. There are seven rounds in all. Following Friday’s events, the penultimate meeting of the championship is scheduled for March 15, paving the way for the BKSC finale on April 5.
