A very nice race circuit built in the desert of Bahrain. F1 comes here once a year and I've watched the circus on the TV. Always nice to see the track and facilities when it is quiet. I understand a airstrip close by is used for bringing in the cars and equipment for the race week.

Not a very modern city but the track racing facilities are just amazing. The track should have more stands away from the start finish straight. A great place to enjoy racing.

Amazing setup to facilitate the most prominent event of auto-racing. Ample parking and other facilities. Try to reach well before time to be inside the arena during the F1 event

The circuit is quite impressive when you first take eyes on it and take your seat. However when the racing started the cars seem to all disappear out of sight pretty quickly and i was left spending the whole time watching on the screen to see what was happening. The price of entry to the gulf air tent to get... More
