Exclusive Opportunity For Race Fans in Bahrain

Motorsport fans attending the second Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix this week are in for an extra special treat. The Bahrain International Circuit is giving the public the chance to experience the race track first hand. On Thursday (31st March) buses will take to the track to reveal a side to the BIC that normally only drivers enjoy.

As well as taking in a lap of the track, passengers on board will also have the benefit of expert commentary from one of the Formula BMW Asia drivers who will give a unique insight into driving at the circuit. Fans will be able to get insider information on how drivers view the track, how it differs from other circuits and what to expect over the coming days.

Martin Whitaker, General Manager of the Bahrain International Circuit said: "I'm delighted that we are able to provide this service. It's one thing to watch the action on the track from the grandstands, it's another experience altogether to do a lap of the circuit."

"What better way to understand what the drivers actually go through than to experience it first hand. It will help to put the race in context for seasoned race fans and those new to Formula 1."

The buses will run for a two hour slot between 3.00 and 5.00pm, from public car park 10. Any ticket holders wishing to take advantage of the opportunity should congregate there as close to 3.00pm as possible to avoid disappointment. The lap of the track is only available to Grand Prix ticket holders.
