Bahrain’s Grand Prix circuit is located just 40 minutes away from the capital city, Manama, making it an ideal destination for enjoying Bahrain’s culture as well as the event itself. It’s important to know how you are going to travel to the Bahrain circuit, and where you will stay for the duration of the event – to help you plan your trip, we’ve compiled a useful Travel & Accommodation guide for you below.
Unfortunately, Bahrain’s public transport network is still in development, and can be subject to considerable delays on a typical day, so this is often not the recommended method when travelling to the circuit as it could take a lot longer than it should.
However, should you still wish to use Bahrain’s public transport, there are bus services that travel to the circuit. You may also find that your hotel offers a shuttle service over the weekend, so it is useful to check with your accommodation first.
The most efficient method of travel to the circuit is by car, providing the quickest travel time out of all options and guaranteeing a speedy exit after each day has ended.
All spectators are permitted 1 free parking pass per 2 grandstand tickets booked, making parking easily accessible for all ticket holders.
If you will not have access to a car or hire vehicle during the event, you can also travel to the circuit each day by taxi. Booking in advance is recommended, however, as there is often a long waiting time for taxis after the race has finished which can cause long delays.
The city capital of Manama is located 30km, or approximately a 40 minute drive, from Bahrain’s
Grand Prix circuit, and this is where the majority of guests will find accommodation over the weekend event.
