You will be taken to the eighth floor roof-top, where you can catch an amazing 360-degree view of the entire facility as well as the surrounding Sakhir area.
RACE CONTROL TOWER
Next stop on your tour is to the state-of-the-art Race Control Tower, the nerve centre of the circuit. It is the place from where everything on the race track is monitored and can be controlled.
You will get a chance to visit the main control room, which houses the most modern in motorsport technology. From here, officials can make use of more than 40 remote-controlled cameras with zoom capabilities that have been placed in strategic locations out on track, enabling allowing for the monitoring of everything going on during a race from one central point.
The nearby Media Centre is located right beside the Race Control Tower, making it the most natural next stop on your tour. Capable of hosting more than 500 media professionals at any given time, the Media Centre is just as hi-tech as the rest of the circuit.
