Yas Marina Circuit unveils timings for f1 activities

Today Yas Marina Circuit announced the schedule for the upcoming Formula 1TM Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, including an array of activities and entertainment for all the family.

Spectators will not only enjoy the thrill of seeing the F1 World Champion being crowned in Abu Dhabi, but will also have the opportunity to see very close racing in the supporting GP2 and Porsche events and sample a wide range of off‐track activities from breakdancing and skateboarding workshops to bungee trampolines.

Other family activities at the circuit will include karting for those aged 18 and under, the F1 Village, BMX bikers, food and beverage stands, an autograph zone, live music, a climbing wall, an arcade gaming zone, nail art stations, kids zone and entertainment from the Swat Crew, Killa Kela and Acrodunk basketball players.

Ticket‐holders will have the opportunity to attend the live concerts by Kanye West on Friday the 12th, Linkin Park on Saturday the 13th and Prince on Sunday 14th of November. Concert access will open every evening at 18.30 until midnight.

“There is a huge variety of activities and entertainment available this year to suit all age groups and interests, in addition to one of the most compelling races of 2010,” said Richard Cregan, Chief Executive Officer of Yas Marina Circuit. “It is a great honour for Abu Dhabi to be the deciding race of the most exciting F1 season in recent years, and the excitement and anticipation is mounting. Combined with all the additional off‐track entertainment, I believe race‐goers can look forward to an amazing weekend."

Families and racing fans will also be able to experience the highly anticipated, multidimensional and newly opened Ferrari theme park, situated right next door to the circuit.

Away from the track and in the heart of Abu Dhabi is the F1 Fan Zone on the Corniche which will provide everyone, whether they have a ticket for the race or not, with the opportunity to experience the F1 buzz and excitement, buy racing experiences, and enter Yas Marina Circuit prize draws.
