As testing gets underway in Sakhir, fans have been invited to catch an early glimpse of the Formula One action ahead of the Bahrain Grand Prix in April. The public will be able to attend the test during two special open days, to be held over the coming week.

The dates in question are Saturday, February 24 - the final day of testing this week - and Wednesday, February 28 - the start of next week’s three-day session. Children will be admitted for free, while adults will pay a nominal fee of one Bahraini dhinar (roughly US$2.65). Tickets for both days will be available on the gate at the circuit.

The special open days are part of a programme of events being held under the banner of ‘Yalla Bahrain!’ (‘Let’s go Bahrain!’) ahead of the Grand Prix, which will take place on April 13-15.
