Motorsport fans will be busy on Friday at BIC in Sakhir.
“The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East” has put together a packed programme of exhilarating on-track experiences, starting from early in the morning and continuing until late at night.
Three of BIC’s popular public offerings will be available, including the Ultimate Track Experience, Open Track Night and Jaguar Experience.
From 8am to 4pm, fans will be able to choose from a series of drives and passenger rides that are all under the umbrella of the Ultimate Track Experience. Then, from 4pm to 11pm, speed lovers will have a chance to drive their very own cars or ride their motorbikes along BIC’s 2.55-kilometre Inner Circuit with Open Track Night, during which the hugely exciting Jaguar Experience can also be enjoyed.
The Ultimate Track Experience activities include drives in a Clio Cup sports car and in a Radical SR1 prototype, as well as passenger rides in a 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 BD110 while the passenger experience can be bought for BD25.
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 BD120, and completing the Clio Cup drive is a prerequisite to taking part in the SR1 experience.
The Radical SR3 passenger ride will be conducted alongside one of BIC’s highly qualified driving instructors. It costs BD35.
Ladies looking to enjoy the Ultimate Track Experience are in for a treat, as BIC is offering all female participants a 20% discount on their bookings. The Clio Cup drive will now cost BD88, while the Radical SR1 drive will be BD96. Similarly, the Clio Cup passenger experience will cost BD20 and the Radical SR3 passenger ride BD28.
This offer for ladies is valid only until December 31, so those interested are invited to take full advantage of the discount and make a booking as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, Open Track Night is expected to attract some serious sports cars and motorbikes that are rarely ever seen hitting the streets. Many of these top-of-the-line automobiles will be coming from all over the Gulf, including from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman and the UAE.
The cost to take part is BD90 for the whole night and BD65 for a half of the evening. There is also an option at BD30 for each single session.
The Jaguar Experience is also on offer during the Open Track activity.
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.
Powerful, agile, and utterly distinctive, the F-Type is a true sports car and the opportunity to drive it must be fully taken advantage of.
The cost for the Jaguar Experience is BD60. Ladies can also enjoy a discounted price of BD48 for a limited period.
