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.

  • We went to the Grand Prix for all three days this April and enjoyed each day. That said we needed to pay for tickets for all three days anyway, as tickets cannot be bought for the day of the Grand Pri...  more »
  • It's a beautifully constructed circuit! Very well maintained too. Been more than 14 years old but still looks like it just opened. It's really well organized during the 'Formula 1' races but the layou...  more »

  • 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.
