Bahrain to build new grandstand for F1 race

Construction of a new grandstand on the pit straight of the Bahrain grand prix circuit will begin next month, according to a report in Gulf Weekly.

The additional seats, to boost maximum capacity to 44,600, is a response to the sellout race-day crowd of 2007, and the increased interest in the upcoming formula one race scheduled for early April.
