BIC offers twice the thrills in back-to-back nights of Open Track

Tuesday, Mar 12th 2019, 1:44 pm | Category: Open Track

Speed lovers can brace for double the thrills this weekend at Bahrain International Circuit (BIC), as successive evenings of Open Track Night are scheduled to be held in Sakhir. 

“The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East” opens its doors to race fans Thursday and Friday (March 14 and 15) for one of its most popular activities. 

Open Track is a non-competitive event that allows drivers to explore their very own car’s or motorbike’s performance within a safe, controlled environment. Driver etiquette is of ultimate importance, so there is no close or aggressive overtaking. Overtaking is by invitation between corners and driving is monitored, with poor or dangerous driving dealt with swiftly by officials. 



Thursday’s events will be held along BIC’s 2.55-kilometre Inner Track, while Friday’s action will take place on the 5.412-kilometre Grand
Prix Track – the same that will be hosting Formula 1’s top drivers and teams later this month. 

Registration begins at 5pm on both evenings. Action will be held from 6pm until 12midnight. 

Participants can choose between driving for the full night at BD110.500 per person, or for just half the night at BD79. A single session
can also be booked for BD42. Friends or family members accompanying drivers also have a chance to be a part of the action as a passenger. The fee is BD12.500. All prices are if booking on the day, inclusive of Value Added Tax. Those who book in advance can enjoy reduced rates. 



Many exclusive sports cars and bikes that are rarely ever seen on the streets are set to hit the tarmac, many coming from outside Bahrain, including from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman and the UAE. All vehicles must first go through scrutineering before being allowed to take to the track. Participants must also be wearing the appropriate clothing, which includes closed-toe footwear. 

Also as a part of both nights of Open Track is the Jaguar Experience. This is perfect for driving enthusiasts who want to sample a true British sports car on the most challenging circuit in the Middle East. It is an adventure that is fast-paced and exhilarating, and its unique,
tailored drives are conducted in two vehicles of Jaguar’s most popular model, the F-TYPE. The Jaguar Experience costs BD63 per person.
