The 2009 Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix track is being constructed by ALDAR Properties, one of the UAE's leading property development companies, and designed by renowned Formula 1 circuit designer Hermann Tilke.
Already under construction, the track is situated on a 2,550 hectare, natural leisure island, Yas Island, situated on the east coast of Abu Dhabi and only minutes away from the expanding Abu Dhabi International Airport.
'Abu Dhabi will bring its own unique culture, landscape and fans to the F1™ experience,' said HE Khaldoon Al Mubarak. 'The track design alone is an indication of the visionary approach we are taking and I am confident we will deliver something truly special,' he added.
'Spectators will enjoy high speed action played out on three distinct sections of the 5.6km circuit, including high speed areas ending in tight overtaking turns, a street section and a marina section. Each section of the circuit combines to deliver an unrivalled viewing experience.'
