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.

  • Great track and facilities. It's usually busy from around 18:30 during the week, which is a good for racing. The staff are nice and helpful and professional training can be bought. This training is well worth while and will make you faster and safer. Prices are also reasonable, two 15 minute sessions in a 13 hp kart (RT 8) for 27 BD, includes: overalls, helmet and gloves. Enjoy
  • loved the experience, had a lot of fun. the staff were welcoming and take safety seriously. thumbs up
  • No finer place to get on a go kart race track. Worth a shot if you are visiting. Even if you are new you want the 13 horse powered one if you want that rush
  • Nice facility for Motorsport, home of one of the F1 races. Hospitality is anyway far from what should be, even during the F1 event. Here they loose one star.
  • Thoroughly enjoyed the Formula 1 race weekend, great facilities over the weekend. Kids entertainment area, entertainment acts all day in the village area at the back of Main grandstand. So much choice of food, shops and adult entertainment other than the race. Getting to the circuit is not too difficult but leaving takes more time and taxis are expensive 40bd, better to book a taxi beforehand and agree the rate. May be share it as well to save some money. Must try to visit Bahrain during the F1 race day.
