Karting: Bahrain International Karting Circuit set for action-packed final KF round

STAGE SET FOR CIK-FIA WORLD KF and KF-JUNIOR KARTING CHAMPIONSHIP AT BIC Bahrain International Karting Circuit set for Action-packed Final Round on Wednesday

Sun, 17th Nov – BIC, Sakhir – Motorsport fans will wait for just two more days before the second and final round of the 2013 CIK-FIA World KF and KF-Junior Championship takes Bahrain International Circuit (BIC), by storm. A slew of the world’s most talented up-and-coming karters are set to compete at the event which will take place from Wednesday till Saturday at BIC’s Bahrain International Karting Circuit, Sakhir.

The championship’s Bahrain round comes after the exciting curtain-raising round that took place last August at the UK’s PF International Kart Circuit in Brandon, Grantham. The opening round saw a masterful display from Dutchman Max Verstappen as he powered on to a first place finish in the KF. He placed ahead of Nicklas Nielsen who will look to make amends at the Bahrain round. Meanwhile, Briton Ben Hanley managed third place on the podium. In the KF-Junior class, British talent Lando Norris put forward a dominant display of control to see off threats from Jehan Daruvala who finished second ahead of Germany’s Mick Betsch.

This year’s championship features a roster of about 140 drivers, with about 55 competing in the KF class, and about 85 in the KF-Junior class. A multinational list of participants will look to end the season on a high note as they compete against drivers from the Netherlands, France Denmark Poland, Italy, France, Finland, Spain, Great Britain, Macau, Russia, Germany, Japan, Venezuela, Singapore, Canada, Australia, the Sultanate of Oman, South Africa, India, Belgium, Brazil, China, the United States, Luxembourg, Thailand, Romania, Argentina, Sweden, Estonia, Norway, Morocco, and the Kingdom of Bahrain.

Flying the flag for Bahrain are the Saudi Falcons Team’s Abdulla Al Thawadi in the KF class and His Highness Shaikh Isa Bin Abdulla Al Khalifa who competes in the KF-Junior class for Bahrain One Racing. Both karters will look to leave their mark on home soil when they compete at BIC, “the Home of Motorsport in the Middle East,” this weekend.

This year marks the second successive year that the kingdom will stage a top-class international karting event. Last year, Bahrain staged the third and final round of the CIK-FIA U18 World Karting Championship and Academy Trophy.

Away from the track, a packed programme of family-friendly entertainment activities will keep fans delighted on the sidelines of the CIK-FIA World KF and KF-Junior Karting Championship. Fans will enjoy music from the Bahraini Lewa Band, face painting, henna art, calligraphy, pottery painting, cotton candy, live pottery, balloon twisters, carnival game and other attractions. Food and beverage stalls will also be on hand.

The exciting closing round is open to all on all days of karting action and entry to the general public is free of charge. Paddock Tickets costing BD10 apiece, are also available and allow holders access to the Paddock area where they can mingle with teams and drivers.
