Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

25.11.16 - 27.11.16
Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi

This glamorous new motorsport venue launched with the grand finale of the 2013 F1 Grand Prix season.

The track is situated on the 2,550-hectare Yas Island, which is adjacent to Abu Dhabi international airport. It features the 5-star Yas Marina hotel, which straddles the racetrack, a marina and yacht club.

The vision of renowned designer Hermann Tilke, the track is overlooked by completely covered grandstands - a world first. There are three distinct sections of the 5.5-km circuit, including high-speed areas ending in tight overtaking turns, a (non-permanent) street section and a marina section. Each section of the circuit combines to deliver an unrivalled viewing experience.

The circuit brings drivers within 5 metres of the water's edge as it snakes around a spectacular marina, and will boast an average track speed of 198 km/h.
