Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) is inviting all motorsport fans to enjoy thrills like never before in the season-opening round of the 2019 Ferrari Challenge Europe, the most admired one-make car race series globally. 

Fans will be able to enjoy a second full day out at the Sakhir track on Saturday (February 16), with hundreds of Prancing Horse enthusiasts from across the Middle East and Europe taking part in this true Ferrari festival. 

Entrance is absolutely free. Gates open at 11am on Saturday and close at 11pm. 



Those with tickets to the Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2019 will also get exclusive access to the Paddock and enjoy an all-new experience at “The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East”. 

The Ferrari Challenge is a one-make championship with a legacy dating back to 1993, and is making its debut in Bahrain this weekend. It places dream cars and very special customers on the most beautiful racetracks in the world, featuring to date over 1,000 drivers globally, as well as many memorable races and thrilling performances. 

The series of activities at the action-packed Ferrari Racing Days include the F1 Clienti and XX Programmes events that follow a separate calendar, occasionally overlapping with the dates of one of the Ferrari Challenge. These global initiatives provide Ferraristas a platform to race in their single-seaters or “XX Programmes” laboratory cars on exciting and challenging tracks like BIC. 



The Ferrari Challenge is divided into three continental series: Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific. The European 2019 season commences at BIC, before heading to Valencia, Spielberg, Le Mans, Nürburgring, Imola and the Finali Mondiali in Mugello. 

This highly competitive racing series is sanctioned by the International Automobile Federation (FIA).
