Bahrain International Circuit, Manama

(4.3/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Kart racing circuit which hosts formula 1 since 2004. Great infrastructure. Far from the city but for those who love speed worth the visit.

  • Awesome experience from start to finish! 1) The staff were very friendly and welcoming 2) There are different karts to choose from including a 9 horsepower and a 13 hours power. 3) They have 3 different tracks that are switched periodically 4) CIK track is the longest of them and it is the most challenging with loads of fun 5) racing suit is including and they have different sizes All in all, I would definitely recommend any one who is interested in racing, Karting or just having fun.
  • It's a very professional karting circuit and great fun.Lots of adrenaline rush,karts are superfun and fast! I have given 3 stars only because of the karting staff behavior. A handful of them are simply rude.They lack basic manners.
  • Great family atmosphere and awesome staff working there. Top notch high speed Karting track with plenty of difficulty turns and elevations. Easy access getting in and out of park.
  • Try the Go-Karting track. It's an amazing amount of fun. Also check out the racing tracks. F1, drag, etc. Always fun for an exciting night out.
  • The manager is one of the best... Greetings Mr. Mohamad
