The Daily Tribune –   

Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) launches its final 30-day countdown to the first open day for fans at the Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2023.

The F1’s season-opening round, will take place from March 3 to 5 at "The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East" in Sakhir.

The circuit will open its doors from the Thursday of race week on March 2, with three-day ticket-holders able to enjoy a behind the scenes view at the Pit-Lane Walk. 

The on-track action will begin on March 3, with the main event, the 57-lap Bahrain Grand Prix, will be taking place under lights on March 5.

All throughout the weekend, there will be non-stop racing from morning to night as a packed timetable will see F1 being supported by the FIA Formula 2 Championship, the FIA Formula 3 Championship and the Porsche Sprint Challenge Middle East.

F2 and F3 will be staging the first rounds of their respective 2023 seasons in Bahrain, while the BIC-based Porsche Sprint Challenge will be holding the fifth and penultimate meeting of its 2022/2023 campaign.

Race-goers will also be able to enjoy all kinds of family attractions off the track, including carnival rides, roaming acts, stage shows, kids’ activities and a spectacular live performance by multi-platinum-selling artist DJ Snake.

BIC’s Early Bird offers have generated its best-ever sales as compared to previous years, and BIC’s Corporate Lounges are already completely sold out.

The pre-season tests will see the F1 teams and drivers out on track together in their new cars for the first and only time ahead of the 2023 season’s start.
