The Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix Club is an exclusive enclosure offering a range of additional services and facilities at the BIC vending area, which can be accessed by the Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2006 ticket holders for a small additional fee of BD25. The enclosure can accommodate up to 2,000 people.

We came up with the Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix Club idea as an added incentive to motor sport fans, who want something more than just a ticket to watch the race, said Vice President Marketing and Sales Danny Barranger.

Ticket holders will get an access pass to the Club, where a special array of food and drinks from popular outlets await and, comfortable seating from where they can watch live broadcast of the races on screens installed in the Club premises. They will also receive a copy of the official programme and ear plugs free.

Not just that; those who buy the Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix Club access pass automatically become members of the Bahrain International Circuit Motorsport Club and can enjoy the following additional privileges;

- A one year subscription to BIC's newsletter
- A 10% discount on all BIC Race tickets (except the F1 2007 event)
- A 10% discount on all BIC products (Open Track and Open Bike)
- A 10% discount on BIC merchandise.

The season opener at the Sakhir track will showcase new regulations, new teams and drivers along with a new qualifying format and many other changes. It will be a fantastic race and one not to miss.

This year we have focused on added value entertainment and have created many attractions for the whole family said BIC General Manager Martin Whitaker.

The Gulf Air one-day package to watch the final race on 12 March has become very popular and is selling out fast. The package includes return economy class air tickets, meet and greet service at Bahrain International Airport, transfers from the airport to the Bahrain International Circuit and back, entrance tickets to the Grand Prix on Sunday 12 March and, a souvenir bag.
