BIC Chief Executive Shaikh Salman bin Isa Al Khalifa hailed Bahrain1 Racing and Al Balooshi for their success. Shaikh Salman commented: “Congratulations to His Majesty the King’s Personal Representative His Highness Shaikh Abdulla bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Khalid Al Balooshi and the entire Bahrain1 Racing crew for a brilliant season and for securing the Pro Mod title amongst a competitive field. “Bahrain1 has been dominant this entire campaign, winning all four rounds held to date and continuing to raise the bar each time they take to the drag strip.

“The team’s prowess and professionalism are a true testament to what it takes to be a champion, and they continue to make the Kingdom of Bahrain proud both on the international and local stages. “We wish them continued success in their upcoming competitions, particularly in their upcoming bid to claim a hat-trick of world championship titles in the NHRA Pro Mod Series in the United States.”

Al Balooshi sealed his national Pro Mod title after defeating defending champion Hani Ali of Bapco Motorsport in their final elimination run of round four.
