Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) is set to host a packed weekend of on-track action and mesmerising thrills.
BIC invites motorsport enthusiasts to enjoy a series of unique activities in the Ultimate Track Experience on Friday. Then, on Saturday BIC welcomes members of the public for an Open Track Day.
Both offerings are among the most popular for race fans at BIC. This weekend, they will each be taking place along the Sakhir circuit’s 2.55-kilometre Inner Track.
Friday’s Ultimate Track Experience will be held from 8am to 1pm. It is set to include drives in a Clio Cup sports car and in a Radical SR1 prototype, as well as passenger rides in the Clio Cup and an ultra-quick Radical SR3.
The Clio Cup car is a Renault-manufactured racing machine that features a 1.6-litre Turbocharged engine that can generate up to 220bhp and 6,000rpm. The drive can be purchased for BD115.500, while the passenger experience can be bought for BD26.500.
The Radical SR1 prototype features a 1,340cc engine which can generate 185bhp. It launches from zero to 100kph in 3.6 seconds. This drive costs BD126, and completing the Clio Cup drive is a prerequisite to taking part in the SR1 experience.
The Radical SR3 Passenger Experience will be conducted alongside one of BIC’s highly qualified driving instructors. It costs BD37.
The Open Track Day on Saturday will be held from 9am to 4pm. It is expected to draw in scores of participants and their sports cars and motorbikes, some of which are rarely ever seen hitting the streets. Many of these top-of-the-line automobiles will be coming from all over the Gulf.
The cost to take part is BD89.500 for the full day and BD63 for a half day. There is also an option of a single session for BD26.500.
Discounts are available for those who book their slots in advance.
Also set to be held as part of the Open Track Day are the Jaguar Experience and the Radial SR3 Passenger Experience.
Delivered through a unique and tailored drive, the Jaguar Experience has been designed to ensure that all guests are given a dynamic, hands-on and memorable experience on the track in a Jaguar F-Type. The cost for the Jaguar Experience is BD63.
The Radical SR3 Passenger Experience remains at BD37.
