The second race, which is another 3-Hour endurance, is scheduled for December 3, followed by the final 24-Hour Endurance to be held on 27 January 2017.

Following a podium finish in the Dubai Kartdrome 24 Hour Endurance Championship last weekend, the Batelco team is energised and ready for action on their home track where they will compete against teams from the region and internationally.

The two Batelco teams, Batelco Drag 965 and Batelco Drag 965 Junior, will complete against the very competitive field, with the line-up of drivers including Mohammed Mattar, Khalid Alsaei, Abdulla Buhendi, Hussain Hasan and Rashid Meamari, under the guidance of team manager Mohammed Sarhan.

Batelco Drag 965 would like to take the opportunity to thank Batelco for its continuous invaluable support. Great appreciation is also extended to Drag965 for its sponsorship of the team and to Gulf Air, the team’s official carrier for international races.
