Celebrating Bahrain’s 50th National Day?

Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) will be marking the Kingdom of Bahrain’s 50th National Day celebrations in a massive way this week.

Four major events will be taking place at “The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East” from till Saturday, and all four will be happening simultaneously on National Day this Thursday, December 16.

Fireworks and Concert
The Batelco National Day Concert and a spectacular fireworks display—one of the biggest in Bahrain—in commemoration of the Kingdom’s National Day and His Majesty the King’s accession to the throne will take place on Thursday.

The brilliant fireworks display will light up the sky above the Sakhir desert with vibrant colours, starting at 7pm. The show can be enjoyed from BIC’s various parking lots absolutely free, or from the surrounding areas around the circuit. The public is advised to arrive early to avoid delays due to the large crowd expected.

Following the fireworks, popular music icons Flipperachi, Mohammed Rabeea and Jaber Al Turki will be performing in the Batelco National Day Concert from 7.30pm to 9pm at BIC. Entry is BD1 and all proceeds will go towards the Royal Humanitarian Foundation. Tickets are now available on the Batelco app.

On-Track Entertainment
The BIC presents world-class action in the form of the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals (RMCGF) 2021 and the 2021/2022 Bahrain Drag Racing Championship (BDRC), which will be heating up the tarmac at the karting track and drag strip.

The Rotax Max Challenge Gran Finals has already kicked off at BIC’s world-class karting facility, Bahrain International Karting Circuit (BIKC), with the action featuring more than 400 karters from 75 countries continuing until Saturday, December 18.

This is the first time the RMCGF is being held in the Kingdom, and BIKC’s 1.414-kilometre CIK-FIA circuit is in the global karting spotlight. The participants are battling it out in seven different categories, including the Micro MAX, the Mini MAX, the Junior MAX, the Senior MAX, the DD2, DD2 Masters and the EKART Senior.

Meanwhile, the BDRC will be staging the second round of its current season until December 16. Around 200 of the region’s best drag racers will be battling it out in the Middle East’s premier drag racing series.
