The Yas Island Marina Circut, the new venue that will hold the first ever Abu Dhabi Grand Prix next year, has been unveiled. This track looks to be even more lavish than even Monaco or Singapore. It has a pit road that actually passes under the main track and a hotel that straddles the track.
For the 2009 F1 season, this new 3.4-mile, 21-turn track will replace Brazil’s Interlagos as the location for the final race of the year. The seating capacity is strangely low, only 50k. Although every single seat in the stadium is covered by a large shade, the first of it’s kind on such a large scale.
Check out the pictures:
It’s definately a beautiful track; and the long, wide back straightaway should make for some exciting F1 racing, since they’ll have lots of room to try to pass. Hopefully next years season will as tight or tighter than this one’s was, so that the final race has some meaning.
