Bahrain International Karting Circuit to welcome Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals 2021, following rescheduled calendar

Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) will be staging one of the biggest annual karting events in the world later this year after Bahrain was announced as the host nation of the Rotax MAX Challenge (RMC) Grand Finals 2021 in December. This event was scheduled to take place in Bahrain in 2020, but was postponed due to prevailing global travel restrictions.

The best 2021 RMC drivers worldwide will compete for the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals title at the Bahrain International Karting Circuit from December 3 to December 11.  It is expected to host almost 400 of the best karting drivers in the world, from almost 60 countries.

Sheikh Salman bin Isa Al Khalifa, Chief Executive of the Bahrain International Circuit, said:

“The Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals are one of the biggest karting events on the global stage and we are honored to be hosting this prestigious meeting. The event will bring in hundreds of karting fans into the Kingdom to enjoy our challenging track in this exciting and extraordinary surrounding. We are proud that our world-class karting facility is helping to grow young driving talents and this event will further highlight our commitment to enhancing the sport in the region.”

Peter Ölsinger, GM and Managgement Board member of BRP-Rotax, added:

We are happy to welcome the best Rotax drivers of the world to Bahrain and to this prestigious track, which is well-known across the globe, located right next to the famous F1 race track. We already started the organisation of our annual karting highlight. The event will be executed following a strict Covid-19 measurement plan to ensure the health and well-being of all participants. Furthermore, we are monitoring the Covid-19 situation worldwide very closely to be able to react in time to ensure the execution of the RMCGF 2021.”

Bahrain International Karting Circuit was designed to the highest international standards and is capable of hosting world championship races under the CIK-FIA. The Circuit made motorsport history in 2012 when it became the first karting track anywhere across the globe to host a world championship-level event at night thanks to the high-specification floodlight system. The challenging track is 1,414 km long and features 14 turns which will give the opportunity to see thrilling action on the track when the best Rotax drivers will fight for the podium in 2021.
