The first Abu Dhabi F1 GP was held in 2009 at the Yas Marina Circuit and will continue to be held there until at least 2030. It is one of F1 showcase events and being the final race of the year it is often the series decider.

The race starts at dusk and is run under lights and like Monaco, it is possible to view the race from boats moored trackside if your budget will stretch to that. And the paddock? It’s one of the best and comes alive at night.

General admission tickets are on the high side (5th most expensive on the calendar) but that does little to dampen demand and come the end of the season, many turn up to this race just for the atmosphere and social scene.

KYM'S TIP

If you have time, rent a 4WD and head to the Rub Al Khali where you’ll find one of the largest sand hills in the world along with a spectacular road that winds through these shifting sand dunes.

The place to be seen is the beautifully lit W Hotel which is part of the track. Come race weekend it’s thumping and pumping. If you’re a light sleeper this is NOT the hotel for you but if you like to party and have deep pockets, you’ll lap it up!

Not too far from the W is a collection of 4 star hotels that are popular over the race weekend albeit at prices 5-8 times higher than normal and one of the newest properties is the Hilton Yas Marina, it looks impressive.

If you have a car or are happy to taxi/Uber to the track there is a bevy of top quality hotels towards the city and traffic normally flows freely.

The Abu Dhabi GP is a showcase for the sport and scrubs up well on TV. If you can get here and you have the budget, book an F1 Experiences package for an unforgettable weekend.
