The annual competition, which is the biggest in the Gulf, sees racers put the pedal to the metal at Bahrain International Circuit.

As the race is sanctioned by the NHRA, winners will walk away with a Wally trophy.

You’ll get to watch all the action on the Sakhir circuit from the side lines from 7pm on January 14.
