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
  • Bahrain F1 race normally held in the mid of April, it very challenging race for the drivers due to the high ambient temperature. There is many activities held there nice place for family to enjoy the F1 race and the part at the evening
  • The heart of racing in Gulf & Middle East. Hear the roars of the F1 engines, racing cars & sports motor bikes. Very well designed & develop throughout years with each year more & more action & activities for adults & kids. Enjoy the races & event.
  • An exceptional racing track. Really world class. I recommend every person to visit the BIC during the F1 race as it really comes to life.

Where to stay in Manama

Manama waterfront areas boast many hotel chains playing a game of one-upmanship to see who can get higher and more luxurious than the rest. The Modern and Post-Modern skyscrapers contain luxury hotels with onsite malls, swimming pools, spas, and fine-dining restaurants. Look farther inland for simpler hotels, as well as rental apartments, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts in the residential, older districts.
