It will come as no surprise to anyone who likes F1 that the marina circuit is exactly as you see on TV, what you don't appreciate until you go on it though is how narrow it gets in places and how hot it is.

An amazing experience to drive in the Yas Circuit, if you are looking for adrenalin it is the right place! To drive the Aston Martin GT4 with a trained instructor to advice you in the laps it's very helpful, due to the fact that it involves a lot of technique. Going from the 6 gear (over two hundred km/h) to the 2 gear (something around 100 km/h or less) in a few seconds to make the turn it is amazing. Totally worth it and I advice to do it, one of the greatest things to do in Abu Dhabi.

Amazing experience. They open up the circuit for fitness once a week. We hired cycles from the site which were cheap and had loads of fun. Being an F1 fan it was amazing to experience the circuit.

If you're a petrol head then Yas Marina Circuit is the place for you!

My first encounter with the venue was taking my son for the "hot laps" experience, you are taken out on the circuit in a Le Mans style race car by a professional racing driver and you're certainly given the ride of your life! It can be pricey but if you have Abu Dhabi Entertainer vouchers it's very affordable.

Of course you HAVE to go to the one event that the circuit was built for - Formula 1 weekend. The entire 4 day event is an experience to behold. From gates open to gates closed each day plus the after race concerts is an action packed event. There is always something happening on the track, guaranteed, 40 minutes after the end of one event the next one starts. Everything is well planned and coordinated, all running like clockwork.

One would think that with an event of this size traffic and getting to the venue would be a nightmare, not so at all. Parking is provided a fair distance from the track and a few meters from your parking bay you hop onto one of the hundred or so busses that drops you at your designated entrance gate in a matter of minutes.

From when you jump onto the bus in the morning till you stumble wearily off the bus late at night, it is non stop action.

The staff are well trained and answer any queries you have in a heartbeat. As soon as you step through the gates they are there helping you and directing you to where you need to be.

It's a fantastic experience, and yes, we already have our tickets for this year's event!
