A new motor sport and driver development academy was launched at the Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) yesterday. Twenty drivers are taking part in the Thunder Arabia launch, which continues today.
"Motor sport racing is all but a regional obsession but unfortunately, Middle East drivers have yet to share in the glamour of one of the world's most popular sports," said Thunder Arabia president and CEO Hassan Al Wardany.
"This will help us to establish Bahrain as the regional training hub and provide the region's driving talent with an opportunity to show the world what they can do."
Thunder Arabia communications and driver relations director Mohammed Hussain said that the course includes both theoretical and practical training, all imparted by professionally qualified driving instructors from the UK.
"This is the next step for drivers after go-karting. It eases their transition from go-karting to F3, Formula BMW, Formula Renault and perhaps eventually F1," he said.
Thunder Arabia ZIP Formula cars are entry level single seater racing cars designed to give young riders an introduction to car racing, said Thunder Arabia logistical and operation executive Saud Yateem.
"This allows participants to develop an understanding of basic car balance, basic car set up and to learn the circuits they will be racing on," he said.-TradeArabia News Service
