Excitement continues to build for F1’s season-opening round, which is set to take place from March 3 to March 5 at the Bahrain International Circuit - ‘The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East’.
Following the record attendance at last year’s F1 spectacle, BIC is looking forward to welcoming the public for what is expected to be an even bigger turnout.
The circuit will be opening its doors from the Thursday of race week on March 2, with three-day ticket-holders able to enjoy a behind the scenes view at the Pit-Lane Walk. The on-track action will begin on Friday, March 3, with the main event, the 57-lap Bahrain Grand Prix, taking place under lights on Sunday, March 5.
All throughout the weekend, there will be non-stop racing from morning to night as a packed timetable will see F1 being supported by the FIA Formula 2 Championship, the FIA Formula 3 Championship and the Porsche Sprint Challenge Middle East. F2 and F3 will be staging the first rounds of their respective 2023 seasons in Bahrain, while the BIC-based Porsche Sprint Challenge will be holding the fifth and penultimate meeting of its 2022/2023 campaign.
In addition, the F1 Aramco Pre-Season Testing 2023, will be taking place from February 23 to February 25 at BIC. The pre-season tests will see the F1 teams and drivers out on track together in their new cars for the first and only time ahead of the 2023 season’s start.
Race-goers will also be able to enjoy all kinds of family attractions off the track, including carnival rides, roaming acts, stage shows, kids’ activities and a spectacular live performance by multi-platinum-selling artist DJ Snake who will be taking to the main stage at BIC’s F1 Village on Friday night.
Those looking to experience the pinnacle of motorsport must purchase their tickets as soon as possible to be a part of the region’s biggest racing and entertainment extravaganza. BIC is offering a pair of all-new hospitality packages for this year’s event: The Dome Lounge and The Champions Club.
The Dome Lounge includes three-day access to a dedicated stand next to the BIC dome located along the main straight, opposite the podium; three-day entry to the Dome Lounge, which will include complementary food all day, showcasing a mix of international cuisine; access to an exclusive range of beverages, a full programme of entertainment in the Dome Lounge, including DJs, roaming entertainers, and much more to keep fans entertained between racing sessions; and entry to the exclusive Fashion TV after-party, straight after the race.
