BAHRAIN International Circuit (BIC) has lined up an exciting double-header on Saturday for the maximum enjoyment of motor sport enthusiasts.

The day-long programme includes the Ultimate Track Experience and an Open Track Night.

Kicking things off from 8am to 4pm will be the Ultimate Track Experience, taking place along BICs 2.55k Inner Circuit.

On offer will be a couple of drives in a Clio Cup sports car and a Radical SR1 prototype, as well as a passenger ride in an ultra-quick Radical SR3.

The Clio Cup drive is sure to give motor sport fans an exciting look into the racing capabilities of one of the world’s most popular sports cars.

This Renault-manufactured mean machine features a 1.6-litre Turbocharged engine that can generate up to 220bhp and 6,000rpm.

The Clio Cup drive can be purchased for BD120 and the entire experience lasts roughly two-and-a-half hours.

The Radical SR1 drive promises the ultimate adrenaline rush. The SR1 prototype features a 1,340cc engine which can generate 185bhp. It launches from zero to 100kph in 3.6 seconds.

The SR1 experience could last up to around two-and-a-half hours at the cost of BD140. Completing the Clio Cup drive is required before taking part in the SR1 experience.


The Radical SR3 passenger ride will be conducted alongside one of BIC’s expert driving instructors. This passenger ride costs BD35 for a session of around 40 minutes.

Later on Saturday, from 4pm to 11pm along BIC’s world-renowned Grand Prix Track, Open Track Night will take place.

Open Track is one of the most popular and highly subscribed events at BIC, and this weekend’s event is expected to attract racing enthusiasts from all over Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman and the UAE.

The cost to take part is BD75 for the whole day and BD50 for half day. There is also an option at BD25 per session.

Also as part of the Open Track activity, fans wishing to take a passenger ride in a Clio Cup race car or a Radical SR3 prototype may do so.

Discounts are available for all those who book their participation in advance at or call the BIC on +973-17-450000.
