Zain awards win­ners of GulfRun Karting Race

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

Zain, the lead­ing telecommunications com­pany in Kuwait, awarded the win­ners of GulfRun Karting En­durance Race 24 hours cat­e­gory. The award­ing came as part of Zain’s strate­gic part­ner­ship of the 12th edi­tion of GulfRun, the re­gion’s most an­tic­i­pated mo­tor­sport ac­tiv­ity.

Zain’s sup­port of this ex­cit­ing event over the years stems from the com­pany’s Cor­po­rate Sus­tain­abil­ity and So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity strat­egy to­wards the youth and sports sec­tors. The event is or­ga­nized by a group of Kuwaiti youth, and has re­ceived over­whelm­ing feed­back dur­ing the past years.

GulfRun in­volved a Karting En­durance Race, which was held at Kuwait’s SIRBB Cir­cuit over a con­tin­u­ous pe­riod of 24 hours. The ac­tiv­ity wit­nessed tremen­dous suc­cess, gath­er­ing many en­thu­si­asts of this sport along­side the pub­lic. Zain awarded CER Karting/Bur­gan Agri Co. for win­ning the first place ti­tle, as well as award­ing the win­ners of the sec­ond and third place ti­tles.

GulfRun kick-started last week­end, and will con­tinue un­til Fe­bru­ary 2017, in­volv­ing sev­eral thrilling ac­tiv­i­ties tak­ing place in Kuwait and Bahrain. Along­side the Karting En­durance Race, the event will also in­clude an ex­cit­ing car show at 360 Mall, where par­tic­i­pants will be show­cas­ing their ex­quis­ite high-speed sports cars to thrill seek­ing in­di­vid­u­als. Fol­low­ing the car show event, par­tic­i­pants will be fly­ing over to the King­dom of Bahrain to take part in sev­eral train­ing pro­ce­dures in prepa­ra­tion for the fi­nal race at the Bahrain In­ter­na­tional Cir­cuit. Par­tic­i­pants will be able to gain valu­able in­sights with the help of qual­i­fied train­ers and pro­fes­sional in­struc­tors who have a long-track of mo­tor­sport ex­pe­ri­ence.

It is worth men­tion­ing that GulfRun is an an­nual mo­tor­sport event which was es­tab­lished in 2005 by a group of Kuwaiti youth who are sim­ply pas­sion­ate about au­to­mo­bile rac­ing. The event ex­tin­guishes it­self from any other mo­tor­sport ac­tiv­ity by pro­mot­ing a safe and se­cure en­vi­ron­ment to race and train, as well as spread­ing aware­ness to limit street ac­ci­dents.
