Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) is one of the world’s premier motorsport facilities – a modern, user-friendly and exciting venue in the high-speed, high-tech, high-adrenaline industry of motor racing.
Having hosted the Formula One World Championship for over 10 years now, the world-class circuit has firmly established itself as “The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East”.
Aside from Formula One, BIC stages several international, regional and national racing championships throughout the year and regularly hosts corporate, community and charity functions, making for a packed calendar of more than 300 events per year.
2014 was a particularly special one for BIC, as the circuit celebrated 10 years since its opening in 2004. BIC also proudly held its 10th edition of the Formula One Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix.
To commemorate the milestone anniversary, the Kingdom’s Formula One race was held at night for the first time, making for a unique, floodlit spectacle.
Countless memories have been made over the past decade at BIC – each as valuable and irreplaceable as the next – and the unveiling of the track lighting system was just the latest and it signaled in a new era of night racing in Sakhir.
Through the inspiration of His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and Deputy Prime Minister, and behind the leadership of the BIC Board and Management, the circuit has become one of the most valuable stops on the calendar of the FIA Formula One World Championship.
