Bahrain International Circuit (BIC), "The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East", announced today that it has completely sold out its Main, Beyon and Turn 1 grandstands for the Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2024.

With the racing and entertainment extravaganza just over two weeks away, interest from fans is at an all-time high, and BIC is getting all geared up for another sensational turnout this 29 February to 2 March in Sakhir, for Bahrain’s first every Saturday night race.

This year’s race will be the first of a record 24 rounds on the 2024 FIA F1 World Championship. It will be an extra-special occasion, celebrating “20 Years of a Modern Classic” as the Kingdom of Bahrain showcases its landmark 20th anniversary in motor racing's top flight.

BIC’S announcement today of the Main, Beyon and Turn 1 grandstand sell-outs follow the recent news of the F1 Paddock Club and the circuit's Corporate Lounges also completely selling out. There is now only very limited availability on tickets to the University and Victory grandstands, with BIC’s two other hospitality options, The Dome by F1 Experiences and The Champions Club, also having some availability.

Those who are eager to attend the F1 weekend but have yet to purchase their tickets or hospitality packages can do so today online at bahraingp.com, by calling the BIC Hotline on +973-17450000, or at the BIC stand at City Centre Bahrain.


Also taking place in support of F1 throughout the race weekend will be the first rounds of 2024 in the FIA Formula 2 Championship and the FIA Formula 3 Championship, as well as the fifth and penultimate round of the 2023/2024 Porsche Carrera Cup Middle East.

Off the track, BIC has lined plenty of attractions in its biggest-ever grand prix entertainment programme for the whole family to enjoy. These will be headlined by live performances by world-renowned artists, including a post-race concert by superstar DJ and producer Diplo.

The attractions also include roaming performers; carnival rides; kids’ shows featuring some of their favourite Nickelodeon characters such as SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer, Paw Patrol and Shimmer and Shine; an extreme circus; an F1 Fanzone with many activities offering a genuine F1 experience, and so much more.

All these will be available on all three days in the circuit’s vending area.

Prior to race week, BIC is also set to host three days of F1 Aramco Pre-Season Testing 2024 from February 21 to 23, with public access available on 22 and 23 February. Access for pre-season testing is free for all tickets purchased prior to 1 February, whilst tickets are also available at just 5BD per day on BIC’s website.
