Where to watch the action at the Bahrain GP
Posted on 27 January, 2024
Taking up its now-traditional spot as the season-opener, the Bahrain Grand Prix™ provides your first opportunity to see the 2024 grid take to the track.
Celebrating its 20th anniversary in March, Bahrain International Circuit in Sakhir has garnered a reputation for exciting, wheel-to-wheel racing with three different drivers, each from different teams, taking the top step in recent years.
With its floodlit backdrop and desert setting providing a visually spectacular scene to kickstart the season, the cooler evening temperatures and superb grandstand views offer a pleasant experience for racegoing fans.
If you’re considering attending this year’s Bahrain Grand Prix™, read on for our guide to the best place to view the action at the Bahrain International Circuit.
The Dome by F1® Experiences
Enjoy 3-day hospitality in the 'The Dome' by F1® Experiences, plus live entertainment, including DJs, roaming entertainers and more in between track sessions.
Also includes access to a dedicated grandstand with seat-back style seating located on the Main Straight. From here you'll enjoy a great view as the cars navigate the final turn and accelerate onto the main straight, plus clear sight of the post-race podium celebrations.
Champions Club in Sakhir is positioned away from the Main Straight, directly below the Beyon Grandstand between Turns 10 and 11. Often the scene of several passing manoeuvres, the drivers accelerate away from the tight and technical Turn 10, before passing a DRS zone on their approach to a fast left-hander.
With a Champions Club Beyon Package, guests can experience this great view with a 3-day seat in the Beyon Grandstand, plus all-inclusive hospitality, appearances by an F1® Media Personality or Driver, a Grid Walk and Championship Trophy Photo, and a Guided Paddock Tour.
Main Straight Grandstand
Offering a prime view of the starting grid, finish line, and team garages, the Main Straight Grandstand is the perfect choice for fans looking to soak up the pre-race atmosphere and a chance to witness the season’s first race winner celebrate atop the podium.
Our Hero Main Package provides you with 3-day access to the Main Straight Grandstand along with a range of exciting insider activities, including a Guided Track Tour, Pit Lane Walk, and access to our Thursday evening ‘Inside F1®’ event.
Turn 1 Grandstand
Positioned at the end of the Main Straight, the Turn 1 Grandstand provides a great view of one of the circuit’s key overtaking spots. Spectators will see plenty of action here as the drivers brake from 320 km/h as they approach the first corner apex.
While seated here, fans can also expect to get a good view of the pit lane exit, further adding to the excitement as the teams execute well-timed pit strategies to gain track position.
A Hero Turn 1 Package includes 3-day access to the Turn 1 Grandstand, plus all the same benefits as listed in the Hero Main Package above.
Located along the back straight before Turn 14, the Victory Grandstand offers a great view of the high-speed approach and technical braking zone through the circuit’s final corner.
Further adding to the excitement for fans, this grandstand is also well-located to witness the final overtaking opportunity of the lap, and the race climax as the leader passes by just moments away from taking the chequered flag.
Fans looking to secure a 3-day seat in the Victory Grandstand can do so with a Starter Victory Package, providing all of the above activities aside from the ‘Inside F1®’ event access.
