If you happen to be in Abu Dhabi when one of these events is happening make sure you buy yourself a ticket and experience the speed and thrills offered by the superb circuit. Additionally, the circuit is open for amateur drivers to test their speed and driving skills on this challenging race track. You can just go to the circuit and sign up for the classes offered by the officials to get the opportunity to drive on the track, and even learn how to drive a Formula 3000 car!
