Overview

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, the last race on the Formula One calendar, is held at the Hermann Tilke designed Yas Marina Circuit. The inaugural race on November 1, 2009, was Formula One's first ever day-night race. Located on the spectacular Yas Island, a 25.5 Sq Km island on the east coast of Abu Dhabi, the venue has floodlights illuminating the circuit from the start of the event to ensure a seamless transition from daylight to darkness. One of the very few anti-clockwise racing tracks, the Yas Marina Circuit also boasts of the longest straight on the F1 calendar. All these factors combine to provide spectators with a truly memorable viewing experience. With the 2014 edition of the race carrying twice as many points as compared to the other races you are sure to have a cracker of an experience!
