Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) is all set for a busy weekend on track with a pair of its most popular activities.
Tomorrow BIC stages the latest edition of its Batelco Fitness on Track programme, offering participants a chance to maintain their health and wellbeing in a fun and safe environment, either on foot or on a bicycle.
On Saturday, speed enthusiasts take over with BIC’s Open Track, giving drivers and riders a memorable experience taking their very own cars or motorbikes around a world-class motorsport facility.
Both events are among the most popular on offer at “The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East”, and those interested in joining are advised to book their seats in advance to avoid missing out. This can be done on bahraingp.com or by through the BIC Hotline on +973-17450000.
Attendees should note that the green shield, as shown on the BeAware App, must be presented on entry. Children under 12 are permitted entry when accompanied by a qualifying adult.
In the Batelco Fitness on Track, all taking part can train or simply casually exercise within BIC’s secure and controlled setting. Runners and cyclists will get a bright and early start to the weekend with the activity taking place between 6am and 10am.
Anyone wishing to participate must pre-register and pay in advance on bahraingp.com. The cost to take part remains the same at BD2 for cyclists and BD1 for runners. Those under the age of 12 can participate for free if accompanied by a paying adult.
The running and cycling will take place on separate track layouts. Runners and walkers will be utilising the 2.550-kilometre Inner Track, while cyclists will be able to ride their bikes along BIC’s 3.543-kilometre Outer circuit, with a dedicated area for children’s cycling.
Additional facilities provided on site include food and beverage trucks, as well as water stations.
Meanwhile, in Open Track on Saturday, the intensity level will be taken up a notch with participants exploring the limits of their cars or motorbikes within a safe and controlled environment.
The event will be held between 12noon and 8pm along BIC’s 5.412-kilometre Grand Prix circuit, which hosts international motor racing’s top stars in Bahrain’s annual Formula 1 spectacle. The timing allows for those taking part in the full activity to enjoy the experience in various conditions, including during the daytime as well as at night under BIC’s bright, state-of-the-art floodlights.
The cost to take part is BD93.500 for the full night and BD66 for a half day. A single session costs BD27.500. Customers who pre-book their slots can benefit from reduced rates. The full day would be just BD82.500, a half day BD55, and a single session at BD22.
Aside from the Open Track activity, the Radical SR3 passenger experience can also be enjoyed on Saturday. This costs BD38.500. The Radical SR3 car boasts an RPE-Suzuki Generation 1,340 DOHC engine. It can go from zero to 100kph in 3.4 seconds.
