WEC race week is here and fans urged to get their tickets today!

WEC race week is here and fans urged to get their tickets today!

It’s race week! The Spirit of Le Mans is set to make its presence felt all week long at Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) with this year’s Bapco Energies 8 Hours of Bahrain taking place Friday and Saturday (3 and 4 November) in Sakhir.

“The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East” is all geared up to welcome the world’s top endurance racing teams and their star-studded cast of drivers, who will be battling it out in some of the most iconic and technologically advanced Hybrids and sportscars.

This weekend’s event marks the season-ending round of the 2023 FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) and it promises a show like no other ever witnessed at the world-class Sakhir motor racing track.

Tickets to the Bapco Energies 8 Hours of Bahrain remain available and fans are urged to purchase theirs today for this unmissable occasion at BIC.

Tickets cost just BD5.500 for adults and BD2.750 for kids for the two-day weekend programme. They can be bought online at BIC’s official website bahraingp.com or by calling the BIC Hotline on +973-17450000. Tickets are priced as one of the most affordable ways to witness a world championship motorsport event.

Hospitality packages are also available for the Spirit of Le Mans Club, where guests can experience exclusive cuisine and incredible views in BIC’s Paddock hospitality. Packages are also available to purchase online or via the BIC Hotline.

This year’s Bapco Energies 8 Hours of Bahrain will be the 12th time the WEC will be racing in Sakhir, and the fifth time the event is taking place in its current eight-hour format.

The WEC’s protagonists will be tackling BIC’s 5.412-kilometre track from day to night, making for a brilliant spectacle that flags off under the afternoon sun and wraps up beneath the stars while being brilliantly lit by BIC’s state-of-the-art floodlights.

A record number of 12 Hypercars flying the flags of eight teams and six manufacturers will be lining up on the grid, making for the largest-ever entry in the WEC’s top-tier category to hit the tarmac at BIC.

Aside from the WEC action, there will also be top-class racing from the region’s leading one-make series, the Porsche Carrera Cup Middle East.

There will also be loads of family entertainment, plus a WEC-exclusive Open Paddock experience—a unique feature which allows fans to enjoy behind-the-scenes access, getting right next to the teams’ garages and possibly see some of the sport’s star drivers in person.

Furthermore, following the tremendous success of the ground-breaking Green Ticket initiative introduced for last year’s WEC race, BIC and Bapco Energies, in cooperation with the Government of Bahrain, are bringing it back for the 2023 event.

For every WEC ticket sold, a proportion of the revenue, matched by Bapco Energies, will be donated to a fund which will directly support the planting of new Mangroves in Bahrain. This programme supports the national target of quadrupling mangrove coverage across the Kingdom by 2035.

All this and so much more await race-goers at this coming weekend’s Bapco Energies 8 Hours of Bahrain.
