The Bahrain official track website is a delight. It has an amazing seat viewer section that was created and made by geniuses!
I wish every track website was that good, but… some are terrible. Anyway – this one is actually the best. You can click the grandstand, select every individual block and then get a view – with near 180 degree panning left and right, to clearly see what view you will get.
Not being the most popular, the tickets are cheaper than other Grand Prix. The main grandstand is a rip-off as usual, but turn one and the university grandstand provide excellent views – I’d say turn one is probably the best seat, for price and view – you can see the cars coming all the way down the pit straight, and then far into the distance after turns 1 – 2.
Pretty much every visitor says that you should really buy the Gulf Air ‘tent’ / VIP area tickets. For about US$ 100 for the weekend, it is the only air-conditioned, beer-serving area, and has the usual big-screen coverage etc.
How to get there – staying in Manama means that your hotel will likely provide a free bus to and from the track. Being a less popular destination, getting in and around the track has less congestion than all other circuits, and you may be able to walk very close to the pit area, despite not having paddock tickets.
