Seven days away from the upcoming 2016 FORMULA 1 GULF AIR BAHRAIN GRAND PRIX, Gulf Air, the Kingdom of Bahrain’s national carrier and title sponsor of the event is counting down to the most highly anticipated motor sporting and entertainment event of the year.
“Now in its 12th year, the Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix is one of the strongest events to propel Bahrain onto the international stage,” Gulf Air A/Chief Executive Officer Mr. Maher Salman Al Musallam said. “This race has become a favorite among motorsport fans around the world, and Gulf Air is proud to bring in visitors to the Kingdom of Bahrain to attend the race and enjoy the array of attractions and tourist activities on offer alongside it.”
The 2016 Formula One Bahrain Grand Prix will take place on 1, 2 and 3 April at the Bahrain International Circuit, Sakhir (the only desert Formula One track amongst the 21 races worldwide) which will host its third night race this year. The event boasts an entertainment lineup that includes Grammy-nominated artist and producer DJ Avicii, DJs Axwell & Ingrosso and reggae musician Jimmy Cliff, in addition to a variety of family oriented entertainment throughout each day.
Gulf Air is committed to strategic sponsorships in support of the promotion of the Kingdom of Bahrain and the national carrier’s extensive network. The airline has been the Title Sponsor of the FORMULA 1 GULF AIR BAHRAIN GRAND PRIX ever since it made history as the first Formula 1 Grand Prix to be held in the Middle East in 2004.
