Bahrain International Circuit, Manama

4.4
Enjoy a variety of races at Bahrain International Circuit, the Middle East's first Formula One venue built on a former camel farm. With Bahrain Grand Prix, drag racing, GP2, and V8 Supercar Desert 400, the circuit boasts a Grade 1 license from the FIA. A huge, pagoda-like tower makes a great observation area for all tracks and the desert beyond. A typical combination of long straights and slow corners of 5.4 km (3.3 mi) round laps give viewers a good chance to observe the racers in a variety of positions and at various speed. Take a tour of the venue for a behind-the-scenes look at its operation. Huge floodlights make night races possible, and gift shops sell many F1 collectibles.

  • Awesome experience.Go there and enjoy a ride around the circuit in their car and feel the adrenaline rush when move out of hairpin and go in the straight. A bit expensive but worth every penny you spend. The circuit also has a game park where you can go and enjoy games in simulators too.
  • The BIC is an amazing establishment hidden in the tiny kingdom of Bahrain. They host races of all types almost year round and the facilities are well kept. Employees are nice and polite.
  • Go Karting is the best. The BIC is probably one of the best facilities for go Karting in the world. The track is superb, the amenities are of the highest quality and standard, and the staff are professional and friendly. There's also a dedicated track/section just for kids who are racing enthusiasts. The circuit is pretty popular with companies corporate events, where the book the whole facility for a few hours, I suggest you call ahead before driving out to the circuit to check.
