Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) announced today its highly anticipated launch of ticket sales for the 2017 Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix.

Only 110 days remain until the spectacular night race, which is scheduled to be the major highlight of the weekend of April 14 to 16 next year.

Tickets are being sold from Monday (December 27) with an ‘Early Bird’ discount of up to 20%. The offer is available only for the next month (until January 27, 2017), and it covers tickets to BIC’s Main Grandstand and Turn One Grandstand.

There is also a 10% reduction on ticket prices to the Batelco Grandstand, University Grandstands and Victory Grandstands. Children aged 12 years old and younger can get their tickets for half the price.

The Bahrain Grand Prix is set to be the third race on the Formula 1 calendar for 2017 and it will be the fourth Grand Prix hosted under floodlights in Sakhir. With the previous night races hailed as the most enthralling and action-packed ever seen at “The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East”, the exciting build up for next year’s event has already begun.

BIC Chief Executive Shaikh Salman bin Isa Al Khalifa commented:

“The 2017 Bahrain Grand Prix is right around the corner and we can already feel the anticipation of the fans across the country. We are delighted to be able to offer them early access to tickets with our ‘Early Bird’ discount.

“We have been overwhelmed by the support for the Grand Prix over the years, but it is clear that the night race has brought in a new breed of racing fan to BIC.

“As our fourth night race, we expect the tickets to be more popular than ever, and we urge fans to get booking quickly to avoid disappointment, as our most popular grandstand tickets sell out faster and faster every year.”

Starting from Monday until January 27, 2017, ticket prices will be reduced by up to 20%, offering fans the chance to snap up an early bargain for the race weekend.

All ticket prices offer three-day access to the Grand Prix weekend, which, aside from Formula 1, will include racing from other major international and regional championships.

In addition, BIC will be presenting its usual selection of family entertainment, including world famous recording artists, as well as music stars and extensive fun throughout the weekend. More details on the racing and entertainment programme will be announced soon.
