BIC to giveaway premium F1 passes

Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) is offering the unbelievable 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. All those who purchase a Main Grandstand ticket to the Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2020, on or before March 7, will be entered into a draw.

Those who have already secured their Main Grandstand seats have also already been entered automatically. The grand prize of two Formula 1 Paddock Club passes will give the winners access to one of the most exclusive locations from where to enjoy this year’s Bahrain Grand Prix, which takes place March 19 to 22 at BIC.

There, they will be able to watch all the racing in a luxurious, first-class setting and indulge in a wide variety of premium food and beverages throughout the whole three days of F1. Plus, they will have a chance to rub shoulders with a whole host of VIPs, and without doubt will get to see Formula 1 star drivers from past and present. Only Main Grandstand ticket-holders will be entered in the raffle. Winners will be announced within the week follow March 7.

Those who have yet to purchase their tickets must do so at the soonest in order to be eligible for the draw. A fourday Main Grandstand seat costs BD150. The Main Grandstand offers a spectacular view of the race track, including the Grand Prix circuit’s start and finish lines, its main straight, the Formula 1 Pit Lane and the podium. Tickets to this year’s Bahrain Grand Prix have been selling fast but are still available.

They can be bought online at BIC’s official website www.bahraingp. com, through the BIC Hotline on +973-17450000, or at BIC’s City Centre Bahrain stand located on the ground floor near gate number three in the West Court. Aside from the Main Grandstand, tickets can also be purchased for four other grandstands, but they will not be entered into the raffle. A Batelco Grandstand ticket for all four days is BD120, while there are also Batelco Grandstand tickets for only Saturday and Sunday priced at BD100 apiece; and also Friday-only tickets at BD60 each.

Furthermore, a four-day ticket to the Turn One Grandstand costs BD100; whereas University and Victory Grandstand fourday tickets are BD60 apiece. It is worth noting that Bahrain Grand Prix tickets are among the most affordable on the Formula 1 season calendar. BIC has also covered the Value Added Tax (VAT) on all event tickets, saving fans from any additional expense. This year’s Bahrain Grand Prix 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.
