Monster trucks, stunt cars for Bahrain show
Manama, April 21, 2013
Monster trucks and custom-made sports cars will be part of a major motoring show in Bahrain later this year, said organisers, adding that plans are afoot to make this year's event bigger and louder with a lineup of stunts and displays.
The Bahrain International Motor Show plan to is scheduled to take place from December 12 until 14, from noon to 9pm at the Bahrain International Circuit (BIC), said a report in the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.
The event will include international stuntmen and renowned mechanics who will mentor Bahraini professionals to improve their skills.
The BD300,000 ($790,640) event will feature at least four monster trucks, performance and muscle cars, Bahraini stunt drivers and bikers, mechanical displays and test drives of the most powerful cars on the road.
Organisers said a mystery racing professional will also make an appearance, but his identity will be revealed later.
"Usually the show is planned four months prior to the event, but this show has been planned a whole year in advance," said the show's founder Wassim Sami Farhoud.
"I want to bring a show that I would want to visit where I can see something I have never seen before and that is exactly what I am doing."
The event will be divided into four sections: motor show, bike show, motor sports and commercial vehicles.
"This show will be very interactive as we are offering two types of test drives, performance and non-performance," he added.
"For the non-performance vehicles, we are setting up a route so people can test their handling and braking. For the performance test, we will be letting people test high performance cars on the BIC F1 track.
"We are bringing in four monster trucks for the show and at least 25 vehicles are lined up to be crushed.
"Also, we have brought back the Bahraini bike stunt team this year as well as a number of stunt drivers from around the region and some international names.
"There will be a whole series of stunts and to support Bahrainis, we will organise training sessions for them with international stuntmen to teach them new tricks and help perfect the ones they already know."
Motoring enthusiasts with private car collections will also put them up for display, including super cars, classics and one-of-a-kind vehicles. – TradeArabia News Service
