BIC Grand Prix 2020 set to light it up with year’s biggest event

Grand Prix 2020

The highly anticipated start to the weekend’s events in the Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2020 will take place from March 19 to 22 at Bahrain International Circuit (BIC).

The four-day event is set to LIGHT IT UP! with the very best of global motorsport and non-stop family entertainment.

Bahrain Grand Prix 2020 is the second of a record 22 rounds on the 2020 FIA Formula 1 World Championship. It will be the first night race of the season and BIC will be joining Formula 1 and national carrier Gulf Air in commemorating their 70th anniversaries.

Three highly competitive support series will be complementing the weekend’s Formula 1 action. These include the returning FIA Formula 2 Championship and the Porsche Sprint Challenge Middle East. Plus the FIA Formula 3 Championship, which will be making its Bahrain Grand Prix debut.

Headlining the off-track entertainment will be the series of fantastic concerts by three of the biggest names in music today. Kicking off the live performances will be Grammy Award-winning producer, songwriter and DJ Afrojack. He will be on the Friday (March 20) night of the race weekend. Then, on Saturday (March 21), global superstar Khalid and Top 10 DJ and producer Don Diablo will perform. It will be an epic night of music.

Fans are urged not to miss out on this year’s race weekend. Tickets to the Bahrain Grand Prix are selling fast. All those excited to attend are advised to purchase theirs as soon as possible.

All who purchase a Main Grandstand ticket will have a chance to take home a pair of Formula 1 Paddock Club three-day passes. Worth almost US$10,000 in an exciting new raffle. This is the first time this prestigious prize has ever been offered for the Bahrain Grand Prix.

Interested race-goers have until March 7 to buy their Main Grandstand ticket in order to be a part of the draw. Those who have already secured their Main Grandstand seats have also already been entered automatically.
