Open track and passenger experiences set for spectacular Saturday at BIC

Thursday, Feb 7th 2019, 8:27 am | Category: Open Track

A sensational Saturday (February 9) of non-stop thrills awaits motorsport enthusiasts at Bahrain International Circuit (BIC). One of the most popular activities on offer at BIC, Open Track is a non-competitive event that allows drivers to explore their very own car's or motorbike’s performance within a safe, controlled environment. Driver etiquette is of ultimate importance, so there is no close or aggressive overtaking. Overtaking is by invitation between corners and driving is monitored, with poor or dangerous driving dealt with swiftly by officials. Saturday’s Open Track will be held from 12noon to 7pm around BIC’s 4.512-kilometre Grand Prix track, the same raced on annually by Formula 1’s biggest stars. Participants can choose between driving for the full event at BD89.500 per person, or for just half the day at BD63. A single session can also be booked for BD26.500. Friends or family members accompanying drivers also have a chance to be a part of the action as a passenger. The fee is BD10.500. Those who book in advance can take advantage of reduced rates. Many exclusive sports cars and bikes that are rarely ever seen on the streets are set to hit the tarmac, many coming from outside Bahrain, including from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman and the UAE. All vehicles must first go through scrutineering before being allowed to take to the track. Participants must also be wearing the appropriate clothing, which includes closed-toe footwear. Also as a part of Saturday’s Open Track are a trio of adrenaline-pumping experiences. The Jaguar Experience is perfect for driving enthusiasts who want to sample a true British sports car on the most challenging circuit in the Middle East. It is an adventure that is fast-paced and exhilarating, and its unique, tailored drives are conducted in two vehicles of Jaguar’s most popular model, the F-TYPE. The Jaguar Experience costs BD63 per person. Fans can also choose from passenger rides in a Renault Clio Cup sports car or an SR3 prototype race car. The Clio Cup passenger ride costs BD26.500, while the SR3 ride is BD37. All prices mentioned above are inclusive of Value Added Tax.
