Bahrain F1 Circuit

The F1 circuit opened 2004. We were lucky to get a guided tour of the facilities thanks to an Arabic speaking colleague.

 

Me on the top floor of the tower where admission is around 10000 US$ for 2 hours during a F1 race.

Control room.

 

We got a ride on the track. Although it was in a Toyota van, it was fun to try the "g-forces" in the curves.
