The organisers of the Bahrain Grand Prix have moved to reassure visitors to the track ahead of next month’s F1 test session and race.

The events have been targeted by anti-government protesters.

Circuit CEO Shaikh Salman bin Isa Al Khalifa, said: “The safety of all Bahraini nationals, expats and overseas visitors is a priority at all times in the Kingdom and, at the Bahrain International Circuit, our focus at the present time is on delivering another successful event in the form of the 2011 Gulf Air Formula 1 Bahrain Grand Prix.

“We are monitoring the situation very closely indeed in association with the relevant authorities, and will respond appropriately to any further developments.”
