BIC: Bahrain launches ‘Love and Loyalty’ Festival in support of Gulf Air Bahrain F1 Grand Prix
Bahrain, May 23rd 2011: Shaikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa, First Deputy Chairman of the Supreme Council for Youth and Sports and President of the Bahrain Royal Equestrian and Endurance Federation, opened on Monday the “Love and Loyalty” exhibition and festival at Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre in Sanabis.
The event is being held until May 30, and all are welcome to take part.
At the exhibition and festival, the Bahraini public have a chance to show their support for the Formula One Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix by signing a special book calling for its return to the 2011 Formula One World Championship.
The book was created by a group of Bahraini motorsport enthusiasts who are hoping for the Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix to be held at a later date this year.
Thousands of Bahrain residents have already signed the book, which was launched two weeks ago at Bahrain International Circuit during the first-ever ‘National Racing Finals’. It was then stationed at Bahrain City Centre over the past weekend, and even more people added their signatures as a sign of unity and backing for the Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix.
While fans show their support for the Formula One race, they also have the chance to take home valuable souvenirs commemorating the annual racing spectacle. These gifts are being handed out to all those present.
Participants in the festival include ministries and government bodies, as well as public and private institutions from all over the island.
It is being held as part of nation-wide events in which people can pledge their love and loyalty for the Kingdom of Bahrain and its leaders.
Doors at the “Love and Loyalty” exhibition and festival are open between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. daily.
All those who support the Kingdom’s Formula One race are encouraged to attend the event and sign the special book, with the hopes of a quick return of the Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix to the 2011 Formula One Word Championship.
