If there is any reason to look at the latest Abu Dhabi properties, it is the absolutely spectacular Yas Marina Circuit which is situated on Yas Island. The island is off the coast of Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE and the largest of the seven Emirates, and is one of the fastest growing tourist destinations in the world. This makes it the perfect venue for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix which takes place there every year. The first race took place in 2009 and brought the Formula One season to an end, while the 2010 race was a typically dramatic affair which saw race winner, Sebastian Vettel crowned World Champion for the first time.
There is no shortage of other reasons why Yas Marina Circuit makes for the perfect end to the F1 season. It is located in the ideal spot, right next to the iconic Yas Hotel, six other hotels, a luxury marina, yacht club, the Yas Island golf links and the recently opened Ferrari World indoor theme park. This means that there is something for everyone, from avid Formula One fans awaiting a nail-biting season-ending race to those who simply want to take in the fantastic atmosphere and stunning views. The circuit is also close to the international airport, while the city of Abu Dhabi can be reached in just 25 minutes.
The circuit itself was designed by renowned Formula One circuit designer, Hermann Tilke, the man behind other recent circuits such as those that host the Malaysian, Chinese, Turkish and Bahrain Grands Prix. It is 5.55km long and has twenty-one corners that twist through the island, passing by the marina and through the Yas Hotel grounds. Sand dunes are a common sight and the racetrack has several long straights and tight corners in addition to a pit lane exit that runs partly underneath the track.
The action can be viewed by around 50,000 spectators from the circuit’s four permanent, covered grandstand areas: the Main Grandstand, West Grandstand, North Grandstand and South Grandstand. As a matter of fact, Yas Marina Circuit is the only motorsports venue in the world that has only covered grandstands. The Main Grandstand accommodates almost 7000 spectators opposite the Pit Building, while the West Grandstand offers a particular treat for fans as it has a spectacular view of the run-off for the cars that fail to negotiate the tight turn at the end of the long straight. This may only be topped by the view from the South Grandstand, which is one of the most stunning panoramas in motorsport.
