Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Company, the sovereign wealth fund of the Kingdom of Bahrain, has announced an investment through a fully owned subsidiary in Racing Force, the parent company of Racing Force Group, a world leader in safety systems for motorsports, to address the growing global market demand for motorsports safety products.

This investment coincides with the expansion plans of Racing Force Group of its current Bell Racing Helmets factory in Bahrain, which was established in 2014.

Furthermore, it is in line with the Group’s strategic plans to explore opportunities for growth in Bahrain through the introduction of new brands and a wider range of products.

His Excellency Shaikh Abdulla bin Khalifa Al Khalifa, Chief Executive Officer of Mumtalakat, emphasized that the collaboration with Racing Force to expand their footprint in Bahrain aligns with Mumtalakat’s strategic objectives of investing in growth sectors that aim to create highly skilled job opportunities for Bahrainis, boost the competitiveness of the Kingdom’s specialized industrial sector on a global scale, and enhance Bahrain’s prominence as a motorsports hub in the region.

Racing Force Group’s Bell Racing Helmets facility in Bahrain has employed 400 Bahrainis since its establishment. Furthermore, all Bell Racing Helmets products are entirely ‘Made in Bahrain’.

Since its launch, it produced and exported 254,000 helmets, 286,000 Mini Helmets, and over 500,000 accessories, highlighting the Kingdom’s manufacturing competitiveness on the global stage, as per the statement.

Earlier this month, Mumtalakat partnered with M42, an Abu Dhabi-based global tech-enabled health powerhouse, in order to launch the Amana Healthcare facility in Bahrain.
