The Bahrain International Circuit is a motorsport venue opened in 2004 and used for drag racing, GP2 Series and the annual Bahrain Grand Prix. The 2004 Grand Prix was the first held in the Middle East. Beginning in 2006, Australian V8 Supercars raced at the BIC, with the event known as the Desert 400. However, the V8 Supercars did not return for the 2011 V8 Supercar season. 24 Hour endurance races are also hosted at BIC.[2] The circuit has a FIA Grade 1 license.

A top-class racing circuit located in the middle of sand dunes in near desert conditions doesn't seem very likely, yet this is precisely what the Bahrain International Circuit delivers.

Flashback 2017

The race was won by Sebastian Vettel, who passed both Mercedes cars ahead of him on the grid. Lewis Hamilton received a five-second penalty for retiring Daniel Ricciardo at the entry of the pit lane, but after a strong overtaking race he finished second, ahead of his teammate Valtteri Bottas. Kimi Räikkönen was fourth, ahead of Ricciardo and Felipe Massa. Force India driver Sergio Pérez moved from the eighteenth starting position to the seventh finish position and remained Romain Grosjean. Nico Hülkenberg gained ninth place the first points of the season for his team Renault and the Force India of Esteban Ocon completed the top 10. Toro Rosso driver Carlos Sainz jr. Rode against the Williams of Lance Stroll in the thirteenth round, so they both went out. Sainz received a penalty of three starting places for the next race in Russia. [source: wikipedia]
