We hired a taxi for a full day (8hrs) with a stop here. Not really into F1 racing but glad we went. A Welcome centre and a bus that takes you to the control tower with a view over the circuit. Walking along the grandstand, the seats covered with a thin film of sand, pit lane and garages empty, the... More

We went there on Sunday 21st Dec for the 14.00 tour. The tour was on the website but we could not book it as the website kept crashing. We arrived to be told that there was no tour as it seemed they could not be bothered due to lack of people. Nobody seemed to care that we had gone all... More

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.

To get there is fairly easy, you cannot miss the signs. Once there they have a visitor center open the whole year with very nice people working there. At our vissit there was a young man ( Mohamed) working there. He took quietly his time to explain everything inclsive special care to my son, who cannot walk but loves everything... More

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
