Tickets for Bapco 6 Hours of Bahrain now on sale!
Bahrain International Circuit announced today that tickets to this year’s FIA WEC Bapco 6 Hours of Bahrain are now on sale.
The highly anticipated event, which will mark the ninth and final round of the 2017 FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC), will be held November 17 and 18 at BIC, “The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East”, in Sakhir.
Tickets cost BD10 apiece for the entire weekend while all those aged 12 years old and younger can get in for free. They can be purchased today online at www.bahraingp.com or by calling the BIC Hotline on +973-17-450000.
BIC partner Bapco is the title sponsor of the WEC event for the third year running. Bahrain is the WEC’s exclusive destination in the Middle East. It gives race fans a special taste of the spirit of the legendary 24 Hours du Mans, which is widely accepted to be the world’s biggest and most challenging race while also being the blue riband event of the annual WEC calendar.
Many of the world’s most prestigious brands in motoring will be represented in Sakhir, including Porsche, Toyota, Ferrari, Aston Martin, and Nissan; while many ex-Formula 1 stars will also be behind the wheel competing in a large grid of more than 30 cars.
Race goers will be free to watch all the high-octane action from the Main Grandstand and also enjoy an Open Paddock experience throughout the entire weekend. Watching the event from the Main Grandstand overlooks the start and finish line, the main pit lane and the main straight. Meanwhile, the Open Paddock will give fans a chance to experience what goes on behind-the-scenes in the WEC paddock, where they will likely get a chance to meet one or more of the championship’s star drivers.
This year’s event is the sixth edition of the desert endurance race. The Bapco 6 Hours of Bahrain is scheduled to flag off at 4pm, with the chequered flag scheduled to come down at 10pm.
