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.

  • I went to the night before the 20th day of the Bahrain Grand Prix. Unfortunately Comiket? In such event is being held, was not allowed in. Tried to go to your cart right next to this pretty good clean. Can I get on the rental chart, and will sale in race relations. Course's layout width too wide open and mimics the Bahrain circuit. The driver of the other car floor overlooking almost whole. I can enjoy it.

  • At the time of our visit there were no cars on the track, and there was no fuss. The sight of the tower is worth it because it is a beautiful panorama of the ski slope and the stands. Also the control room is interesting. The press room is very large, but not particularly. If you're in the area, can you ever pass.

  • We have made a trip to the BIC during a cruise. We were lucky that was just training for the Porsche GT Cup. From the top floor of observation tower, we had a super view of the racetrack. Then we threw a look in the Control Panel, as well as in the pit lane. Also not formula 1 fan was the an interesting experience.

  • 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
  • Genuinely one of the best tracks to drive on in the world, amazing corners and fantastically managed. We have had events in BIC for the past 14 years and they have an amazing staff who have made every event nothing short of great and continue to support us. The Track is very well maintained and they always ask us for feedback. They have their own fuel station which is maintained and active. The Track itself is very well designed for powerful cars as well as track oriented cars with amazing run offs. The amount of safety margins that is calculated into the track is great and the Marshalls on the track are on point.

  • We went to F1 again this year because we liked it so much last year. Had a great time, there was a lot of entertainment especially for the kids. Also a variety of food to choose from. Something for all ages and of course the race. Be back next year.
  • Very very very best and very thrilling experience you can get it there. If you try Bahrain club circuit race offered for general people and if you drive your vehicle with full speed, you will not believe thrilling experience. In your entire life you will not get that experience. Can't explain this experience in worlds. Those can get the chance please visit it and for others please get the chance anyhow.
