“Good tourist site”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

I go cycling on Yas every Tuesday, few laps on the F1 track. Not many places can offer that.
There is also a Karting track outside for the drivers, which is quite good and alot tougher than it looks !!
I recommend staying in one of the hotels over the track to see it from another angle also.
Worth the visit

“Interesting site, average tour”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

This track raised the bar for all others, as there is little the petromonarchy hasn't done to make it unique. For instance the tower control is replaced by numerous high resolution cameras, and tire protections are replaced by more advanced less dangerous but highly more expensive materials.

The tour (paid) is however not excellent. Though the tour guide gave all is heart to it, half his speech is boring promotional talk intended to sell more goodies and track experiences. Taking a minibus you will be taken to a seat section where you can get an inside view of the track (and be recommended to purchase tickets in advance...), then to F1 teams on-site facilities, pits and the control room.

Overall the tour is just lightly informative. Still a nice place to visit for car race fans, and a little less for the others.

I did a drivers experience day here, I highly recommend it. Best 20 mins I spent in a long time... and the shortest day!

“If you are an F1 fan - Its great”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Its an F1 track - so you need to be an F1 fan for the effect - that being said, the Karting here is good - Tuesday evenings keep fit walk around is excellent idea (you must register online first)

“A must see if you're a sporting fan...”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

I have been lucky to not only visit the F1 track but cycle and run around the venue while taking part in both the Yas Triathlon and Abu Dhabi Triathlon this year. The track is open to all runners, cyclists, walkers and rollerbladers every tuesday and this is the best way to experience it. Enjoy...
