    It is easy to get around the circuit, you can catch a bus which goes all the way round, although we have also walked around the circuit as well. You have to go around the outside though, you cannot walk around the inside to get to the different grandstands.

    I went last year and will be going again this year. Was excellent last year and was really well organised which is very rare in the Middle East.

    I live in Dubai but will be staying in Tourist Club area in Abu Dhabi.

    Can’t wait!

    It depends where you guys are from re costs. We are from the UK so compared to prices here taxis are cheap. First year out we quibbled over a taxi fare on the Saturday as it had gone up from the Friday and then realised it worked out that it had gone up by £2.50! Alcohol is expensive but food, depending where you eat is like anywhere else, you can eat on a budget or have a blow out. We are staying in Abu Dhabi and a lot of the hotels have a variety of restaurants to choose from. Unless they have improved things not a lot of choice at the circuit and in the stadium for the concerts burger and chips is about it at a set price.

    Hey everyone! Super stoked to get in on this chat! Came all the way from Calgary Canada for this race! Ask my if I’m excited! I’m arriving in Dubai tonight and looking to see if anyone is down for a beer or for a meet up?

    I don’t have any plans and not sure how I’m getting to the track at the moment. I’ve seen suggestions of Renting vehicles. I’m willing to split/help pay! My personal email is ccolanto@gmail.com feel free to contact me!

    Hope to see you guys out there!
