BIC ready for Open Track Day

Fri, 10 Nov 2017

Bahrain International Circuit is set to host an Open Track Day tomorrow.

Also set to be on offer to the public are a pair of Ultimate Track Experience passenger rides in a Clip Cup race car and SR3 prototype.

The activities will be held from 8am to 4pm along BIC’s 2.55-kilometre Inner Track.

Open Track Day will allow participants to drive their very own road cars or motorbikes. They will be able to choose between driving for the full day at BD75 per person, or for just half the day at BD50. A single 30-minute drive can also be availed for BD20.

Friends or family members accompanying participants at BIC will also have a chance to be a part of all the action as a passenger in a car. The passenger ride costs BD12.

In the Clio Cup and SR3 passenger rides, the Clio Cup ride gives fans a look into the racing capabilities of one of the world’s most popular sports cars. The Renault-manufactured Clio Cup features a 1.6-litre Turbocharged engine. It can generate up to 220bhp and 6,000rpm, and it has a paddle shift racing gearbox and an FIA-specification roll cage and seats. The passenger ride comprises a single three-lap session of around 40 minutes, and it can be enjoyed for BD25.

The Radical SR3 passenger ride will be conducted alongside one of BIC’s expert driving instructors. A Radical SR3 boasts an RPE-Suzuki Generation 1,340 DOHC engine. It can go from zero to 100kmh in 3.4 seconds, and also has a six-speed sequential gearbox and paddle gearshift system. The SR3 passenger ride costs BD35 for a three-lap session of around 40 minutes.

Tomorrow’s activities will be run to the highest of international safety standards, although participants will still be able to push their cars or motorbikes to their very limit. All vehicles must first go through scrutineering before being allowed to take to the track.

All those taking part in any of tomorrow’s activities must wear the appropriate clothing along with closed-toe footwear. For further information on the Open Track, visit or call the BIC Hotline on +973-17-450000.
