GulfRun – Bahrain International Circuit

dsc02628.JPG

We started off the day early meeting up at the Circuit and there were a lot of people from the track who were there to point out for us all the safety issues and facilities available on the track. We were all eager to start, and I was part of group three in the beginning, but there were a few cars that couldn’t go due to technical issues so I was moved up to Group 1 heading out right away with some very powerful vehicles.

We headed out into the track with the track chase vehicle in front of us which is a modified Lexus IS 350 and it can move. The after the first warm up lap I started going a little faster and a few laps in I started getting a feel for the vehicle and I was blasting music the whole way around. It was fantastic chasing vehicles down and seeing if you can over take them, it is all about the abilities of the drivers, the cars can only do so much.

You start off slowly pushing yourself and figuring out the limits of your car, and some of the guys have good basics but lacking some techniques. A lot of people were missing the lines and apexes which basically means you loose speed and power coming out of the corner, I know I am improved as I was driving the course but I need to take a course to help me improve even more.

We started off with the three groups and each group gets 20 minutes each so that people can get used to the track without any pressure. Later on they had open track sessions for anyone who wants to go out to go, and I went out more times then I could count. I took at least 10 passengers over the number of times I was on the track, I was on the track for most of the day but it does take a toll on your vehicle. They tell you what to do and what not to do on the track to cool down your vehicle, and cooling it down is extremely important.

There was a few technical difficulties with a few vehicles but at least nothing bad happened to anybody and these are issues that can be fixed. I think everyone enjoyed the whole day on the track, and I know that everyone had a smile on their face through out the day. There were a few times when people were clowning around but it was all in good fun, nothing too dangerous.

You will soon be seeing a GulfRun video of what was being done since we mounted a camera onto the front of vehicle while racing around. I was chasing some cars, but their were some vehicles which were impossible to follow on the track since they were driving like demons.

Then there was the drag race which is a very entertaining session, and I just wanted to enjoy myself and I didn’t want to do it too much. Some people went a lot to test their vehicles, my tires reached their limits a long time ago since they need replacement.

It was one hell of a day but well worth it and very exhausting, this was an experience that every person should enjoy.
