About Gulf Run Karting Endurance Race - 2019

The GulfRun Karting Endurance Race will take place starting on Friday 8th of March 2019 at Kuwait’s most advanced go-karting facility, Sirbb Circuit.

This event was launched in 2011 to create an exciting motorsport competition in Kuwait, with the first edition being 26 hours long – the first of its kind in the region. Over the past 5 years, GulfRun Karting has evolved into a fully-fledged endurance race that follows International regulations from start to finish. With professionalism in mind, the race is marshalled by a certified team and the karts have been purchased specifically for this race.

The GulfRun Karting Endurance Race must be performed by teams. The size of each team must be a minimum of 4 drivers and a maximum of 12 drivers. Teams will have the option of competing in one of two categories:

  • Rookie: 50% of the dirvers must be newcomers (meaning they have not participated in GulfRun Karting Race before)

In addition to the exciting endurance race, the area around the track is converted into a fun carnival before the race. Several activities, local stores and restaurants will be available to participants and visitors of all ages to enjoy during the race. 

So assemble your crew and put your go-karting stamina to the test!
