As the temperatures begin to rise, so too will the level of action and intensity at Bahrain International Karting Circuit (BIKC) over the next two weekends.
The Bahrain Karting Sprint Championship (BKSC) heads into the final two rounds of its 2015/2016 season, and both are set to be hotly contested events with all still to play for.
The BKSC’s penultimate meeting takes place Friday (April 29). The championship finale will then be held the following weekend on Friday (Editor’s note: May 6).
Racing in the back-to-back includes the Bahrain Rotax Mojo Max Challenge (BRMMC) and the Bahrain SWS Sprint Championship (SWS).
The BRMMC is a category exclusive for Rotax kart owners, while the SWS is an arrive-and-drive championship that is open to interested participants above the age of 16 of any nationality and skill-level. They compete in identical RT8 Sodikarts, provided by BIKC.
Fans can expect plenty of excitement in both meetings. All are welcome to attend and cheer for their favourite drivers. Entrance to BIKC is free of charge.
