The FIA WEC Bapco 8 Hours of Bahrain is set to feature a spectacular support race program that includes a pair of the biggest and most professionally run championships in both the region and in Asia.
Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) has lined up both the Porsche Sprint Challenge Middle East and the MRF Challenge along with the WEC to ensure non-stop racing excitement.
“The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East” hosts the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) spectacle together for the first time with this year’s BIC National Day Festival, making for plenty to look forward to both on and off the track.
The four-day event will take place from December 13 to 16 in Sakhir. The WEC and National Day attractions will be open to the public from December 13, with WEC running for two days and the National Day celebrations continuing until December 16.
The Porsche Sprint Challenge Middle East is the region’s most professional and most successful one-make GT series and it will be holding the opening round of its 2019/2020 season at BIC. The MRF Challenge, meanwhile, is India’s only FIA-inscribed championship and one of Asia’s premier single-seater competitions. It will be staging its second of three rounds in 2019/2020 in support of the WEC.
Tickets to the event can be purchased today at the BIC stand in Bahrain City Centre, online at the circuit’s official website www.bahraingp.com, or by calling the BIC Hotline on +973-17- 450000. They will also be available at the gate on the days of the race weekend. Tickets cost BD1 per person, per day.
The championship has called BIC one of the top destinations of its annual racing calendar, with regular races featuring at “The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East” over the past few years.
