Yas Marina Circuit
Yas Marina Circuit is the United Arab Emirates’ most exciting sporting and entertainment multi-purpose venue. Located on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, the circuit is home to the annual FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX and much more. In addition to the extensive year-round program of professional and grassroots motorsport events and experiences including Drag and Yas Track Nights, the circuit has emerged as a thriving hub for entertainment and community events in the UAE.
As the region’s most technologically advanced facility, the circuit is also a leading MICE venue, regularly hosting a diverse range of corporate meetings, conferences and events. Whether you want to experience the thrill of karting at our Kartzone, driving an Aston Martin GT4 at over 200km/hour on an F1 circuit, work towards your racing license at the Yas Racing School, get fit at TrainYas or GoYas, participate in one of our many sporting events, or simply catch up with friends at Yas Central, Yas Marina Circuit truly is The Meeting Place of Champions.
Yas Marina Circuit was unveiled on 30 October 2009 with the final race of the Formula 1® World Championship – the inaugural FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX – to a crowd around 50,000 spectators.
After two years of intensive planning and construction involving 14,000 staff and 35 million construction man-hours, our versatile facility opened its doors to the world. The United Arab Emirates was eager to take in the beautiful landscaping and traditional Arabic hospitality alongside sensational on-track action. Yas Marina Circuit encourages the growth of sporting culture in the UAE and prides itself on being the centre for motorsports excellence in the Middle East.
As a training ground for motorsports success in the Middle East, and our commitment to creating a sustainable motorsports community throughout the region, it is our ambition to have a UAE National Driver competing in F1® within 10 years.
