You may wish to consider the following for planning your race weekend travel to Bahrain International Circuit:
The best way to travel to the circuit is by car as Bahrain does not have an extensive public transport network. Parking at the Bahrain International Circuit is limited and it is essential that parking is booked in advance.
Spectators are entitled to 1 free parking pass for each 3 grandstand tickets booked i.e.
If you require parking for e-ticket bookings, you will need to collect a parking sticker before heading to the event. In order to do this, you will need to show your e-ticket at one of the Official BIC Outlets, at the City Centre Mall or Seef Mall, or the Ticket Collection Tent near the Sakhir Petrol Station. You will then be issued with a parking sticker.
It is possible to travel to the circuit using the Bahrain bus system. However, this can take a lot longer than driving or taking a taxi, so we would not recommend this method of travel.
Over race weekend, shuttle buses may run from main hotels in Bahrain. Check with your hotel to see if there is any service offered.
Travelling to the circuit by taxi is a possibility, but there may be long queues for taxis after the race has finished. If possible, book your return taxi in advance to avoid long delays.
Bahrain International Airport is located around 10km from Manama and approximately 40km away from Bahrain International Circuit. Very few airlines offer direct flights from the UK to Bahrain, so be prepared for a stop-over on your flight.
