Pro-democracy protesters are scheduled to launch demonstrations in the vicinity of the Bahrain International Circuit on Sunday.

For the first time the threat of trouble has been mentioned with regard to the race, given previous rallies have been confined to villages and townships.

A risk assessment group, however, are suggesting the dangers that could lie ahead, both at the circuit and also Bahrain University, which lies two kilometres away.

It’s a question of what level of protest unfolds, as security will be at its tightest on race day.
