Can you think of a more glamorous sport than Formula 1, where teams of daring racers drive in exotic single seat racing cars manufactured by the likes of Ferrari, Mercedes and McLaren? As one of the newest F1 tracks in the world, having only been on the circuit since 2004, the Bahrain International Circuit is one of the best motorsport venues on the planet.

It is sure to be a thrilling race, and will undoubtedly be an important one. The early races establish where the performance of both cars and drivers are in fitting with previous seasons and establish the shape of things to come for the rest of the season. If 2017 was anything to go by, with two Mercedes cars in first and second with the Ferrari of Vettel taking third in qualifying, but ultimately winning the race over 57 laps.
A must see for anyone interested in motor racing, the impressive compound puts on a magnificent show that is the envy of other F1 destinations. The view from all of the stands is amazing, allowing you to take in all views of the track and pit-stops. View the different ticket packages and hospitality options on offer.

Explore the Island Archipelago of Bahrain
There’s never been a better time to visit Bahrain’s capital Manama which was named as the Capital of Arab Culture in 2012, the Capital of Arab Tourism in 2013 and the Capital of Asian Tourism in 2014. This is due to the thriving music scene, a varied and creative art scene and plentiful tasty high-quality selection of food options.
Bahrain is home to just over a million people and covers approximately 295 square miles. It is situated in the Gulf of Bahrain between Saudi Arabia and the Qatar Peninsula. The country was once an archipelago of 33 islands, but this is constantly changing due to massive land reclamation projects and now has 84 islands and counting.
The capital, Manama is home to 157,000 people and is under constant development due to its ever large oil economy. The city has a long and varied history, from being a central trade city for several millennia to become a large financial centre for the Bahrain economy. Even if visiting this city for the F1 event in 2018, there is plenty to occupy visitors. The city has evidence of human habitation from the early bronze era and has been an important port, both commercially and culturally throughout its long history. From Bahrain National Museum to indulging in retail therapy at Moda Mall won’t be stuck for things to do while in this enchanting city.
