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.

  • It is a mesmerizing place and a very well maintained one. The place is jam packed for most of the season and exhibition (friendly)races are held frequently. There is also gift shops here where we can get some beautiful souvenirs. I have really enjoyed my time here!
  • Very well built and maintained. Nice place to get the family and enjoy the ambience. Needs more signage to indicate location of prayer rooms though. Also, if they can provide some sort of noise cancellation headphones, that would be great. :'D
