BIC to host Rotax Max Finals

BAHRAIN International Circuit (BIC) was yesterday selected to host one of the biggest annual karting events in the world later this year – the Rotax Max Challenge (RMC) Grand Finals 2020.

The best RMC drivers from all corners of the globe will take to the Sakhir desert from November 7 to 14 for the blue ribbon event of the karting season.

BIC’s state-of-the-art, world-class karting facility, Bahrain International Karting Circuit (BIKC), will be the host track. BIKC caters to the grassroots level of motorsport, and it was designed to the highest international standards.

It is capable of hosting world championship races under global karting’s governing body, the Commission Internationale de Karting-Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (CIK-FIA).

BIKC made motorsport history in 2012 when it became the first karting circuit anywhere across the globe to host a world championship-level event at night, thanks to its high-specification floodlight system.

The challenging track is 1.414km long and it features 14 turns, which will give the opportunity to see thrilling action when the nearly 400 Rotax racers fight for the podium.

Honour

“It is a great honour for us to host the 2020 RMC Grand Finals at this prestigious track, which is well-known across the globe. The 2011-opened karting facility fascinates with its world-class, history-making track,” said Peter Ölsinger, GM BRP-Rotax, Member of the Management Board, VP Sales, Marketing RPS-Business & Communications, about the cooperation between BRP-Rotax and BIC.

“Our 360 drivers of the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals come from all over the world and I am sure that they will enjoy the challenging track in the middle of the desert.

“It’s not usual to drive in such an exciting and extraordinary surrounding. Beyond that, Bahrain is offering a lot of interesting places and attractions also for our side-events during the RMC Grand Finals and we are glad to welcome the best Rotax drivers of the world in 2020 in this wonderful country,” he added.

“The Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals are one of the biggest karting events on the global stage and we are honoured to be hosting this prestigious meeting,” said BIC Chief Executive Shaikh Salman bin Isa Al Khalifa.

“We are proud that our world-class karting facility is helping to grow young driving talents and this event will further highlight our commitment to enhancing the sport in the region.”
