Batelco Drag 965 has finished 3rd overall in the 2016 Sodi World Series (SWS) competing against a huge regional and international line up of over 1800 teams from 52 countries. Over the course of 2016 Batelco Drag 965 amassed 8381 points during 12 races in different countries with six 1st and five 2nd podium places.

Batelco Bahrain CEO Eng. Muna Al Hashemi said that this is a great achievement for the Kingdom of Bahrain and elevates the reputation of racing in Bahrain on the international stage.

“Batelco is proud of the team’s success in the SWS races, especially considering that the international level of competition is very high. Success on the international stage boosts Batelco’s and Bahrain’s profile which helps to confirm the Kingdom as a reputable business and residential hub within the region,” Eng. Al Hashemi added.

Team Manager and Corporate Affairs Senior Manager Osama Alsaad said that he and all the Batelco Drag 965 team members were delighted with this great success especially as it was achieved competing against some of the heavyweight teams and drivers of the karting world.

“The success was only possible thanks to tremendous support from our supporters and sponsors in addition to the dedication and efforts of all team members, whether behind the wheel or working in the background.”

“Accordingly Batelco Drag 965 extends grateful appreciation to Batelco for its ongoing support and to Kuwait based Drag 965 for its invaluable sponsorship throughout 2016. Ensuring we get to all of our international races is Gulf Air, the team’s official carrier and we offer a big vote of thanks to them,” said Mr. Alsaad.

“We additionally want to take this opportunity to thank Bahrain Motor Federation for its ongoing efforts to drive the success of racing in Bahrain and the BIC (Bahrain International Circuit) and BIKC (Bahrain International Karting Circuit) for their support, encouragement and tremendous organisational efforts to host an excellent line-up of events throughout each year,” he added.

Gulf Air Chief Executive Officer Mr Maher Salman Al Musallam said: “We have enjoyed a longstanding and fruitful relationship with Batelco over the years and it is thanks to that strong relationship between two leading Bahraini organisations, and in line with our national carrier’s commitment to supporting home-grown initiatives that we became official carrier to the Batelco Drag 965 racing team.”

“As Bahrain’s national carrier we are committed to supporting initiatives that raise the profile of the Kingdom globally and increase awareness of our people and country – across the Gulf Air network. Batelco Drag 965’s achievement in the 2016 Sodi World Series (SWS) is Bahrain’s achievement and we are delighted to provide whatever support possible.”
