Manama, Bahrain, Wednesday, 5 December 2018 – Following a stellar start to the 2018/19 MRF Challenge International Winter Series campaign in Dubai last month, Singapore’s Danial Nielsen Frost heads to the Kingdom of Bahrain for the second round of the series this weekend. Taking place from 6 to 8 December at the Formula-1 spec Bahrain International Circuit, the round will once again feature a bumper-packed weekend that includes five more races on schedule.
Buoyed by his winning performance at the curtain-raiser round of the series in November at the Dubai Autodrome, the teenager will be hoping to take it up a notch as he looks forward to tackling the Hermann Tilke-designed Bahrain International Circuit. Considered to be one of the trickiest circuits on the MRF Challenge calendar, the weekend’s round will see all the action take place on the clockwise 5.412km Grand Prix track, which features 15 corners.
After such an amazing start to the 2018/19 MRF Challenge campaign at the season opener in Dubai last month, we are really pumped about racing this weekend at the F1-spec Bahrain International Circuit. After our race here last year, we have gone back to study the data and we are optimistic of a good outing here. For sure it is one of the more challenging circuits with its 15 corners and all its interesting characteristics. The long straights are really long at over a kilometre long and there is a good mix of medium and slow speed sectors. There are also a few hard-braking areas, which will put the car through its paces and so we have to be absolutely precise to nail our lines while also being on the limit. After getting our first race win, the motivation is high ahead of the round here in Bahrain!
