It's worth seeing, but unless there is an event there is not much to do at the Circuit. The tourist shop is good and you can usually pick up a bargain F1 shirt as a souvenir. You only need about 10 minutes there.

Such a fun experience during the evening. Go Karting in the desert heat. Affordable fun on a very nice well built track.

The main GP circuit is usually closed, except for some track days, and other scheduled motorsport activity, the welcome center was open with souvenirs available for purchase, and you can visit the grand stand with the view of start/finish straight and pit lane. Entry is free so worth having a look :)

This is a great place for you to have fun with Friends/Family/Children you name it! It would be most thrilling to visit this place during the international F1 Grand Prix in April.. But even if you visit the Go Carting activity race , its also great! Go cart is open everyday and its a thrill for you and your companions... More

if you are here for tourism, then you must go to BIC, not recommended in summer because it will be really hot!

Love the excitement of F1 racing? This track is for you - there is the opportunity to get up close and personal with the pits and garage areas. Parking can be a bit dicey, and don't forget the sunscreen!

I have been to numerous Grands Prix and Bahrain remains at the top, primarily due to the people who manage the race. Everything is run professionally with a focus on the customer - the paying fan.

I have never been a motor sports fan, but when I took my family last year to the 10th Anniverssary 3 day event, which happened to be the First Night Race in the BIC in the Kingdom of Bahrain, I really enjoyed it. The event took place in April 2014, so the date below might not match Th thrilling races,... More
