A massive crowd of more than 7,500 spectators flocked to Amwaj Islands over the weekend to get a taste of Race Fever and enjoy back-to-back nights of spectacular freestyle motocross stunts with the Red Bull X-Fighters Jams.
The stars of the night were renowned international FMX athletes, including Nick de Wit (South Africa), Martin Koren (Czech Republic) and Chris Brock (UK).
Commenting on the spectacular weekend, Red Bull athlete and FMX athlete Nick de Wit said:
“It’s always exciting for us to perform in front of a crowd that is watching freestyle motocross for the first time.
The Bahraini crowd is very familiar with motorsports, which makes the connection with them at another level. We thoroughly enjoyed being in Bahrain. It’s been amazing!”
The Red Bull X-Fighters Jams was part of Race Fever, Bahrain International Circuit’s nation-wide celebration of motorsport leading to the 2015 Formula One Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix.
It was held in Bahrain in collaboration with BIC and Red Bull, and in partnership with Meritas Holding, Amwaj Islands, Hertel and Max Media Co.
