EKanooRacing is a Bahrain-based drag racing team that has an impressive history of breaking records and pushing boundaries. Recently, the team put their 1364AWHP R34 GTR to the test at the BDRC Roll Race Event in Bahrain. Here’s a rundown of what happened and what made this event so special.
What is the BDRC Roll Race Event?
The Bahrain Drag Racing Club (BDRC) Roll Race Event is a high-speed race event that takes place on the runway of Bahrain International Circuit. Unlike traditional drag races, the BDRC Roll Race Event is all about speed and acceleration. The cars start from a rolling position, which means they have to rely on their acceleration to overtake their opponents. Furthermore, the event emphasizes the importance of aerodynamics, weight reduction, and power-to-weight ratio.
Who is EKanooRacing?
EKanooRacing is a Bahrain-based drag racing team that has been making waves in the motorsport world for years. The team is known for its high-powered vehicles, including a Toyota Supra, Toyota GT86, Nissan GTR, and many others.

The R34 GTR
The R34 GTR is a highly sought-after vehicle amongst car enthusiasts. The R34 was first introduced in 1998 and was in production until 2002. It comes with a twin-turbocharged 2.6-liter inline-six engine and can produce up to 326 horsepower. However, EKanooRacing’s R34 has been highly modified, and the engine has been tuned to produce a whopping 1364AWHP.
The BDRC Roll Race Event hosted some of the fastest cars in the region. However, EKanooRacing’s R34 was by far the most powerful.
