    I’m a little confused, is it 1200 KD to enter, or do you have to bring your own team / gear etc? I’m just wondering if I could technically register as an individual and just come by for the race, then walk away. That would be amazing, I’d say the best deal this side of the hemisphere!

    • el wehbi Says:

      It’s KD1,200 for any team that wants to enter, so split by as many individuals. The KD1,200 will provide you with all the stuff they mentioned above (i.e. the go-kart, pit garage which you can brand if you choose to bring on a sponsor, etc.).

      It’s definitely a pretty good deal for a team. An individual would not survive… not because of the price, but because of the fact they have to race for 26 hours on their own lol

    I’d just drive as long as I could with a couple of friends as a team, then quit.

    This is gonna be great! I hope they have adequate lighting coz unlike Le Mans these carts don’t have headlights and there should be enough visibility at night at high speeds.

    I hope to see you there Elwehbi 🙂
