The fifth and final round of the Bahrain Rotax Max Challenge (BRMC) 2021 was held last weekend, with the most recent series of champions emerging at the Bahrain International Circuit (BIC).

Taking impressive victories in the season-finale were Fahad Alkhaled in the Senior Max category, Fahad Almuqla in Junior Max, Luca Houghton in the Mini Max and Shaikh Rashid bin Salman Al Khalifa in the Micro Max, who all also were crowned the season’s champions in their divisions.

Alkhaled won the BRMC Senior Max title with 167 points on the championship standings. Lewis Smith was the runner-up with 128 points, while Najashi Rashdan finished third on 101 points.

Almuqla took the BRMC Junior Max crown, with 175 points. Abdulqader Qasem was ranked second on 104 points, and Sari Alzubi third on 100.

Behind Almuqla from Northstar Racing was Tye Mejia, 3.712s off the winning mark, while Ahmed Alsesey came third 5.986s adrift.

Mejia’s feat of accomplishing second, came after he just moved to the Junior category just four weeks before the final race.

Houghton won a tight battle for the BRMC Mini Max crown after finishing with 150 points. Gracie Rose Grantham was the runner-up with 135 points, while Shanthosh Kumar was third on 130.

Shaikh Rashid clinched the BRMC Micro Max title with a near-perfect season, winning four Pre-Finals and all five Final races. Khaled Alnajjar was ranked second with 138 points and Charlie Goddard third on 112.
