Brace yourselves for an all-new attraction at Bahrain International Circuit: The Ultimate Track Experience, set to be available from October 14.

“The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East” launched on Friday its all-new public offering, and is now accepting bookings in advance.

The Ultimate Track Experience includes four separate activities: a drive in a Clio Cup sports car, a passenger ride in a Clio Cup sports car, a drive in a Radical SR1 prototype, and a passenger ride in an ultra-quick Radical SR3 prototype.

Clio Cup, SR1 or SR3, you choose!

BIC set up a display at Seef Mall in Seef District with all three cars on show to give the public an up-close look at the mean machines. The exhibit is located in the mall’s west extension.

The pair of Clio Cup experiences are sure to give motorsport fans an exciting look into the racing capabilities of one of the world’s most popular sports cars. This Renault-manufactured mean machine features a 1.6-litre Turbocharged engine. It can generate up to 220bhp and 6,000rpm, and it has a paddle shift racing gearbox and an FIA-specification roll cage and seats.

The Clio Cup drive can be purchased for BD120. It includes a pair of six-lap sessions and the entire experience lasts roughly two-and-a-half hours. The passenger ride, comprising a single three-lap session of around 40 minutes, can be enjoyed for BD25.

Meanwhile, the drive in the Radical SR1 prototype promises the ultimate adrenaline rush. The SR1 features an RPE-Suzuki 1,340cc engine which can generate 185bhp. It has a six-speed sequential transverse gearbox, it can go a maximum speed of 138mph and it launches from zero to 100kmh in 3.6 seconds.

The SR1 experience includes two five-lap sessions that could last up to around two-and-a-half hours at the cost of BD140. Completing the Clio Cup drive is required before taking part in the SR1 experience.

The Radical SR3 passenger ride will be conducted alongside one of BIC’s expert driving instructors. A Radical SR3 boasts an RPE-Suzuki Generation 1,340 DOHC engine. It can go from zero to 100kmh in 3.4 seconds, and also has a six-speed sequential gearbox and paddle gearshift system.

The SR3 passenger ride costs BD35 for a three-lap session of around 40 minutes.
