Are you extremely fond of supercars? Do you find them strikingly fantastic? Are you a fan of racing? If you answered yes to all these questions, then visiting Bahrain is definitely for you. More so, Bahrain International Circuit is the venue for numerous motorsport events, and is primarily used for drag racing and the yearly Bahrain Grand Prix.
In addition, last April 6, 2014, BIC honored German Michael Schumacher as part of its 10th year anniversary. BIC has named the first corner of its track after him, recognizing all his achievement to racing. Schumacher won the Bahrain Grand Prix in 2204 and has since then, became a huge influence to race car drivers not only in Bahrain, but throughout the world. He is tagged as the greatest Formula One driver, who has at least 7 world championships. What an inspiration!
