Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) has announced the launch of ticket sales for the 2017 Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix.

The race will be held from April 14 to 16.

Tickets are being sold from Monday with an ‘early bird’ discount of up to 20 per cent. The offer is available only until January 27 and it covers tickets to BIC’s Main Grandstand and Turn One Grandstand.

There is also a 10 per cent reduction on ticket prices to the Batelco Grandstand, University Grandstands and Victory Grandstands. Children aged 12 years old and younger can get their tickets for half the price.

The Bahrain Grand Prix is set to be the third race on the Formula 1 calendar for 2017 and it will be the fourth Grand Prix hosted under floodlights in Sakhir.

BIC chief executive Shaikh Salman bin Isa Al Khalifa said: "The 2017 Bahrain Grand Prix is right around the corner and we can already feel the anticipation of the fans across the country. We are delighted to be able to offer them early access to tickets with our ‘Early Bird’ discount.

"We have been overwhelmed by the support for the Grand Prix over the years, but it is clear that the night race has brought in a new breed of racing fan to BIC.

"As our fourth night race, we expect the tickets to be more popular than ever, and we urge fans to get booking quickly to avoid disappointment, as our most popular grandstand tickets sell out faster and faster every year."

All ticket prices offer three-day access to the Grand Prix weekend, which, aside from Formula 1, will include racing from other major international and regional championships.

In addition, BIC will be presenting its usual selection of family entertainment, including world famous recording artists, as well as music stars and extensive fun throughout the weekend.
