Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) brings the thrills back to motoring fans this weekend with two exciting days of adrenaline-pumping events, including Open Track and the Ultimate Track Experience.
These are two of the most popular activities at ‘The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East’ as they put speed enthusiasts in the heart of the action. Open Track will be held tomorrow while the Ultimate Track Experience takes place on Saturday. Both offerings will be held along BIC’s 2.55-kilometre Inner Track.
Tomorrow’s Open Track is scheduled from 9 am until 5 pm. It is expected to draw in scores of participants and their sports cars or motorbikes, some of which are rarely ever seen hitting the streets. Many of these top-of-the-line automobiles will be coming from all over the Gulf.
Also set to be held as part of the Open Track Day are the Jaguar Experience, and passenger experiences in a Clio Cup sports car and Radical SR3 prototype. Delivered through a unique and tailored drive, the Jaguar Experience has been designed to ensure that all guests are given a dynamic, hands-on and memorable time in a Jaguar F-Type.
The Clio Cup is a Renault-manufactured racing machine that features a 1.6-litre Turbocharged engine that can generate up to 220bhp and 6,000rpm. The Radical SR3 boasts an RPE-Suzuki Generation 1,340 DOHC engine. It can go from zero to 100kmh in 3.4 seconds and has a six-speed sequential gearbox and paddle gearshift system.
Meanwhile, on Saturday, the Ultimate Track Experience will be held from 8am until 4pm.
