BIC begins receiving more than 600 tonnes of F1 cargo for Bahrain GP 2019

Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) has begun receiving the massive amounts of cargo that will be used at the fast-approaching Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2019.

Close to 300 large containers of equipment totaling over 600 tonnes in weight are being transported to the Kingdom of Bahrain for the Formula 1 extravaganza, which takes place next weekend from Thursday to Sunday (March 28 to 31) in Sakhir.

These have been shipped on eight Formula 1 charter flights as well as various commercial and airfreight shipments, while nearly 100 of the containers were delivered as sea freight.



The cargo is coming from Australia, where the FIA Formula 1 World Championship held its opening round last weekend, and also from Europe, where almost all of the 10 Formula 1 teams have their main bases.

The huge loads began arriving on the island earlier this week and will continue to do so until the day before the Grand Prix spectacle.

The containers have already been placed along the main straight of the Grand Prix track, down the Formula 1 pit
lane, and alongside the Formula 1 garage entrances and team buildings in the BIC Paddock, ready for the start of setting up.



The shipments include many key elements to the Formula 1 event, such as the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile’s (FIA) Safety Car and Medical Car, Formula 1 car parts, FIA and Formula 1 equipment, and the like.

Aside from the Formula 1 cargo, there is also one charter flight for the FIA Formula 2 Championship, which will be holding its season-opening round in Bahrain as a support series to the Formula 1 action.

Tickets to the Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2019 are the hottest in town, so fans interested in attending the race weekend are urged to pick theirs up at the earliest to ensure their attendance in the region’s biggest event this year.



Tickets to the Main Grandstand are BD150 apiece. A Batelco Grandstand ticket for all four days originally costs BD120, but there are also two other options for Batelco Grandstand seats. For a ticket to Saturday and Sunday only, the cost is BD100, while for Friday only it is BD60.

A four-day ticket to the Turn One Grandstand is BD100 before any discount; whereas University and Victory Grandstand tickets are originally BD60 apiece.

It is worth noting that BIC is covering the Value Added Tax (VAT) on all Bahrain Grand Prix ticket prices, saving fans from any additional expense to attend the Formula 1 spectacle. The prices continue to be amongst the most
competitive for any event on the Formula 1 calendar.
