Yas Marina Circuit
Go wild on our new track
Yas Marina Circuit was unveiled on 30th 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 60,000 spectators.
Our versatile facility opened its doors to the world after two years of intensive planning and construction involving 14,000 staff and 35 million construction man-hours. 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.
Yas Marina Circuit has hosted such events as FIA GTI, Australian V8’s, NHRA Yas Drag Festival, GP2, Abu Dhabi Rally, Ferrari Finali Mondeli and Formula Drift bringing international racing to this world class facility. This though has not overshadowed the growth and support of domestic championships such as Yas SuperStreet Challenge (Drag Racing) and Yas Racing Series (circuit racing) providing local talent the chance to develop their motorsport skills. In 2014, Yas Marina Circuit developed its own race series, the TRD 86 Cup, which has proven to be a great success in its first year where it established itself as affordable racing designed to bring new blood into the sport.
With our new 1 kilometer track, this is your chance to smash it. Race your squad and own the track, on three configurations to run either in parallel or as a combination. The choice is yours.
