Bahrain Classic Challenge

Bahrain Classic Challenge

A first in the Middle East! 

For the first time, Peter Auto will send its Sixties’ Endurance grid to the Middle East for its final races of the year on the international Sakhir circuit in the Kingdom of Bahrain. This event called the Bahrain Classic Challenge will take place between 30thNovember-1stDecember as part of the Bahrain GT Festival organised by SRO Motorsports Group.

On the track are cars whose names AC Cobra, Ferrari 250 GT, Lotus 15, Jaguar E-Type, etc. still echo in the memories of fans of this era of endurance racing which, at the time, was the top branch of motor sport. 

The above are part of a long list of cars that continue to bewitch the public by their shapes and the noise of their exhausts that hark back to another epoch. This diversity, which today’s public really appreciates, gave an in-depth richness to the world championship of the time. 

A classification based on an Index of Performance which, in addition to the scratch classification, gives an advantage to the small capacity cars and the oldest warriors faced with their more powerful and more modern rivals like the very quick AC Cobras that have racked up victories on many circuits.

Free practice and qualifying will take place on Friday and will be followed by two races on Saturday on the Sakhir circuit laid out in the desert. It will round off the season like a tale out of One Thousand and One Nights!
