Families of frontliners get grandstand seats during Formula 1!

Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) has announced that this year’s Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix and Formula 1 Rolex Sakhir Grand Prix will take place predominantly without spectators. 

There will, however, be a limited number of grandstand seats allocated for the races for families of frontline health workers and first responders in Bahrain, to recognise their incredible contribution and commitment in responding to the pandemic in the Kingdom.

Planning is already well underway for the two race weekends, scheduled for 26 to 29 November and 4 to 6 December. The BIC is working closely with Formula 1, the FIA and the relevant Government Ministries in Bahrain to ensure that the race proceeds with all necessary health protection measures in place, based on detailed and established protocols.
