Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority launches large promotion and activities for F1 Grand Prix

Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority is offering visitors to the F1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix a wide selection of activities, competitions, and interactive experiences as part of its largest F1 Visitor promotion yet.

The F1 event is currently underway in the capital of the United Arab Emirates and tourists taking Abu Dhabi holidays this weekend can enjoy a variety of activities in the Oasis Fan Village, such as games of golf, F1 simulator experiences, and laser shooting games.

The renowned event runs from 31st October until 3rd November, 2013 and the authority has teamed up with several stakeholders to provide an entertaining experience for visitors in the village.

"Over the years the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix has proved to be a highly successful engagement platform for visitor interaction last year achieving over 30,000 guests over the three race days.

"We have gone all out this year to ensure visitors are made fully aware of the many facets of the destination and the enticing line-up of major events coming our way next year."

Explained HE Jasem Al Darmaki, the Deputy Director General of Tourism and Culture Authority Abu Dhabi (TCA).

When tourists arrive at the TCA in the village, they can practice their golf skills at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship putting green, meet characters from Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and Yas Waterworld, and test their skills in simulators and laser shooting games. Guests will be serenaded by an oud player in the Arabian Nights Village where they can enjoy local coffee and henna painting on hands.

In Abu Dhabi, tourists will have the chance to hop aboard the Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing yacht and take a tour with the Volvo Ocean Racing team's skipper and double-Olympic-medal-winner Ian Walker, and local sailing hero Adil Khalid.

There are plenty of competitions to enter where holidaymakers will have the chance to win prizes including tickets to F1 events, desert safaris, and overnight stays in luxury Abu Dhabi hotels.

The F1 Etihad Airways Grand Prix Abu Dhabi takes place at the Yas Marina Track on the manmade Yas Island which is located approximately 30 minutes from the centre of Abu Dhabi. The track is almost 3.5 miles long with 21 bends, and it runs past the marina, through one of the most unique Abu Dhabi hotels - the Yas Marina Hotel - and along sand dunes.
