With just over four months to go before the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix makes its maiden appearance on the Formula One calendar, anticipation is building. And to boost interest in the Yas Marina circuit all the more, race organisers have unveiled an online ‘Virtual Driver Experience’, which gives fans the chance to enjoy a sneak preview of the new track.

“There is so much interest in the Yas Marina Circuit and the race here in Abu Dhabi that the Virtual Driver Experience is a great opportunity for motor sports fans to get as close to the action as possible before race day,” explained Richard Cregan, CEO of Abu Dhabi Motorsports Management.

“It is simple to use but a challenge to master. Whether you are accelerating down the straight, skidding off the track under the grandstand, tackling the tricky Marina and Yas Yacht Club corners or driving beneath The Yas Hotel, every lap offers a challenge.”

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will take place from October 30 - November 1. Click here to test drive the new circuit.
