Bahrain International Circuit

The Bahrain International Circuit is a venue used for drag racing, GP2, and an annual Formula One Grand Prix. For the first time in 2006, there was a V8 Supercar race, named the Desert 400, and also a 24 Hour Race.

The construction of the Bahrain circuit was a national objective for Bahrain, initiated by the Crown Prince, Shaikh Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa. The Crown Prince is the Honorary President of the Bahrain Motor Federation.

Race organizers were worried that the circuit would not be complete in time, and asked for the inaugural Bahrain Grand Prix to take place in 2005 instead. However, Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone refused this request. In the end, the circuit was not quite fully complete, but was good enough for the grand prix to go ahead.

There are Eight individual tracks.

Designed by Hermann Tilke the architect responsible for the Sepang, Shanghai, Istanbul Park and Valencia GP venues BIC's ingenious layout means that two of its track circuits can run simultaneously.

This flexibility allows competitors and fans greater access to this world-class facility, and also provides for a wide diversity of motor sports: Formula One, junior single-seaters, Australian V8 Supercars, international and national drag racing and long-distance GT/sports car/saloon racing, and track days for cars and motorbikes.
