Bahrain GP 2022 Ticket Prices
Bahrain produces exciting racing under lights and with a low spectator capacity of approximately 30,000 fans. The trackside experience is refreshing.
Choosing where to sit at Sakhir is easier than at most circuits; there are just five different grandstands available. Prices are relatively affordable, though have increased around 10-20% over the past few years.
All grandstands are covered, but this is less of a factor as most of the action in Bahrain happens at night, when temperatures are cooler.
The tickets are at 100 BHD ($265 USD) for three days. The three days include three practice sessions, qualifying, and the race. Discounted tickets for children aged 3-12 are available, priced at 50% of the regular adult price.
New for 2022, you can also purchase access to a hospitality tent for the race weekend, priced at $199 USD. This shaded enclosure has big-screen TVs and dedicated food and drink (additional cost).
3-Day trackside parking passes are available for $32 USD. One complimentary parking pass is provided for every three hospitality tent tickets purchased.
