    Its a bit hot, I once got off a plane there and it was 105F, it was midnight.
    It is a very amazing place though.

    I had the pleasure of being in Abu Ahabi when they had the festival of speed afew years back. This was the promotional event in order to try and get the Grand Prix at AD. They staged a mini circuit along the Corniche and round the Emirates Palace and up to the Marina Mall. It was brilliant to say the least and all free......Nice!!!

    I went to the race last year and watched Hamilton win there. Such a good track and atmosphere was awesome. Not sure if you get it with other tracks, but when buying the full 3 day pass you get a few other perks.... pit lane access on the Thursday. 3 free concerts. Got to meet a few of the drivers as well.
