BIC all geared up for first Open Track Night of new season

The on-track action is back at Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) starting this weekend, with the first Open Track Night of the 2018-’19 season taking place on Friday, September 28.

Open Track Night is one of the most popular activities on offer for motoring enthusiasts at BIC. It is a non-competitive event that allows drivers to come and explore their very own car’s or motorbike’s performance in a safe, controlled and professional 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.

The event attracts some serious sports cars and bikes that you rarely ever see hitting the streets. Many of the participants come from outside Bahrain, including speed enthusiasts from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman and the UAE.

This Friday’s Open Track Night will be held under floodlights along the world-renowned 5.412-kilometre Grand Prix track of “The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East” – the same track raced on during the Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix. Action will begin at 4pm and continue until 11pm.

Participants can choose between driving for the full night at BD105 per person, or for just half the night at BD75. A single session can also be availed for BD40.

Friends or family members accompanying drivers also have a chance to be a part of the action as a passenger. The fee is BD12.

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.

As a part of Friday’s Open Track Night, speed enthusiasts will also have the option of trying out a pair of exciting passenger rides in a Renault Clio Cup sports car and/or an SR3 prototype race car. The Clio Cup passenger ride costs BD25, while the SR3 ride is BD35.
