Watch the Off Road Challenge this Friday

If you’re looking for an outdoor activity this weekend, the 2nd Gulf Bank Off Road Challenge is taking place in Bnaider this Friday, March 10th from 10AM to 5PM.

Participants in the challenge will compete on specially equipped natural and artificial obstacle courses which will range from easy to medium difficulty. The obstacle courses will contain sand, rocks, water basins, and other challenges that the participants must pass in order to complete the challenge.

There will be food trucks, large screens, and bleachers for attendees to sit and watch the event from. Entrance is free and since it’s taking place next to the Al Farsi Kite Show, you could hit up both on the same trip.

If you have a 4×4 vehicle and want to participate in the event you can also do that. The cost of registration is 20KD and you could win prizes up to 750KD. To register your car, visit the website www.suffix.events.

Here is the location of the event on Google Maps.

KMT Formula Series this Weekend!

Kuwait will be hosting the “Formula 4 UAE” and “Formula Regional Middle East” Championship this weekend for the first time ever. Both these events are governed by FIA, the same sporting federation that governs “Formula One”.

This is the second time that Kuwait Motor Town is hosting an international event this season and because this is a FIA event, it’s pretty big. The way the organizers are handling things behind the scenes is extremely professional and they’re being very strict. I just left the media briefing and safety is being prioritized above everything else with every decision being made, even with simple things like track access for the media which for this event is only being given to media who’ve participated in previous KMT events.

You can watch these races at the track!

These races are open to spectators to come and watch and there will be various activities happening at the track for all ages ranging from food trucks to bouncy castles. This event should be fun to watch.

The ticket price is KD2 for the day or if you want to attend all 4 days including testing and qualifying its KD5. The full detailed schedule is available on the KMT website but here are the race start times:

Friday, January 27
2:30 pm – F4 UAE (Race 1)
3:45 pm – FRME (Race 1)

Saturday, January 28
9:40 am- F4 UAE (Race 2)
10:30 am – FRMEC (Race 2)
2:25 pm – F4 UAE (Race 3)
3:20 pm – FRMEC (Race 3)

For tickets or more information, visit @kmtkw or kmt.kw/events

Tickets can also be purchased at the gate if they aren’t sold out.

Funniest Person in the World is Coming to AUK

Finnish stand-up comedian ISMO is coming to Kuwait as part of his international comedy tour. ISMO, who is the winner of the title “The Funniest Person in the World” by the comedy club Laugh Factory, will perform at AUK on January 25th.

I hadn’t heard of ISMO until now and I watched some of his clips on YouTube and he seems like a funny guy, but I wouldn’t call him “the funniest person in the world”. If you’re looking for something to do, tickets start at KD15 and can be purchased through Eventat.com

Shrek The Musical is Coming to Kuwait

JACC have announced that the award-winning Broadway show Shrek The Musical is coming to Kuwait next month. There will be 14 shows taking place over 9 days starting from February 2nd up until the 11th.

Tickets start at 10KD but those tickets are for wheelchairs while the second cheapest tickets are 15KD and are for seats with restricted views. So realistically, tickets start at 25KD and go up to 50KD for VIP seats.

I imagine tickets will sell fast, so if you’re interested in watching a Broadway show in Kuwait, this is your chance. To book tickets visit the JACC website ‎‏jacc-kw.com

The 12H HANKOOK KUWAIT Race Has Started!

The 12H HANKOOK KUWAIT race started at 12 PM today and will last till midnight. This is the first-ever international circuit racing event to be held in Kuwait so you probably don’t want to miss this important moment.

It’s a 12-hour endurance race which is why it’s going on till midnight, but the benefit of that is you can come by anytime during the day to chill in the grandstands and watch the race. It’s open to the public and tickets are 3KD. There are also food and coffee trucks as well as a kid’s area.

If you’ve never been to the Kuwait Motor Town race track, here is the location on Google Maps.

Rob Lake Coming to Kuwait

If you’re a fan of America’s Got Talent then you’ll probably be excited to know that the magician and illusionist Rob Lake is coming to perform in Kuwait next month.

I don’t watch America’s Got Talent and unless it’s David Blaine, I generally don’t care about illusionists. But, Rob was a featured act and quarter-finalist on season 13 of America’s Got Talent and is fairly popular so it’s pretty cool that JACC are bringing him to Kuwait to perform.

Rob has shows taking place from December 8 to December 10th and tickets start at 10KD and can be purchased directly from JACC. Link
