The highlight of the “Ninja Show” took place on Saturday and Sunday evening of 29-30 June, 2013.

Quietly, the ninjas scaled the side barriers and perfectly executed acrobatic rolls, jumps and summersaults onto the tracks in spectacular fashion. Soon the two faced off in the middle of the battlefield. Ninjas produced their Katana, ninja swords, while racers sounded their vehicles in acceptance of the challenge.
