Only 10 days remain until the global spotlight shines on BIC in Sakhir for the biggest weekend of the year: the Formula 1 2018 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix.

Taking place April 6 to 8, the highly anticipated desert racing spectacle marks the second of 21 rounds in the 2018 FIA Formula 1 World Championship.

The Formula 1 family is now headed to the Kingdom of Bahrain following the season-opening round in Melbourne at the Australian Grand Prix this past weekend.

The upcoming on-track events at BIC will be highlighted by the 57-lap night race. Off the track, live performances by legendary musician Carlos Santana, singer-songwriter Benjamin Booker and popular electronic dance music duo Disclosure are set to headline all the family entertainment.

Aside from Formula 1, there will also be plenty of racing in the FIA Formula 2 Championship and the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East.

Off the track, race-goers will have a trio of extreme rides to choose from, including a Reverse Bungee, a SCAD (Suspended Catch Air Device) Freefall and a Sky Coaster. Further entertainment will be seen at the Circus Stage, and from the Roaming Acts and Street Musicians and Dancers.

Young children will be able to enjoy a wide selection of engaging activities, all within a massive tent erected in BIC’s Formula 1 Village. Within this marquee, BIC has created four zones allocated for Circus Shows, Theatre Shows, a Candyland Interactive Zone and a Play Ground.
