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. Using our custom trip planner, Manama attractions like Bahrain International Circuit can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

    A large lovely racetrack with bends that will completely throw you off, the go karts have enormous power behind them which makes the experience more exhilarating, it's definitely a place to visit when out in Bahrain, just be aware there are some really good drivers out there who can get really competitive
