The most exclusive VIP experiences, hand-selected by Elite Traveler
November 2-4, 2012
From November 2 to 4, the Yas Marina Circuit will host the F1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
The city’s inaugural Grand Prix was named 2009 Event of the Year by FIA, the ruling body of motor sports, setting standards high for future editions of the celebrated racing weekend. The circuit itself was designed by the world-renowned Hermann Tilke, and the venue boasts covered grandstands and a full range of pit and paddock lounges uniquely arranged along the marina waterfront. The Shams Tower is reserved for the royal family and their guests; if you don’t get an invite, opt for The Formula 1 Paddock Club, located above the pit garages on the main straight.
Friday, November 2, from 11pm to dawn
Sunday, November 4, from 11pm to dawn
