Very nice Ro.Bi

You must be involved in this project in some way or another. What's your opinion on how much will be ready on time? Anything you think won't be completed? Interested to hear your thoughts, I hope it all runs smoothly.

No, it's a old render.
Here's how the landscaping looks at the moment.

lol No, aravinda, just a render. Actually, with just a couple of months to go now until race day, the landscaping should be going down within a few weeks ... if they want a "green" race of course??

Yes, it was mentioned here already (previous page). Personally, I'd rather the F1 season finish in Brazil, but never mind, I'm sure Abu Dhabi won't disappoint.

It won't be pretty come October, but I guess it can be done by then.

Either way it still is mighty impressive even though overall it's no where complete.

Well basically they've got just over 7 weeks to get as much done as possible.
However the pace that this project has been going over the last few months I'm sure that everything needed for race day will be finished.

Notice it's started to go green as well

Yeah I figure that too. But I don't see all the landscaping getting done by then.

Wow, thanks Ro.Bi. Yes, the circuit is certainly looking very close to being up to racing standards now. So cool to see actual testing going on now also. I guess just as long as they have everything in place that they will need for race day then everything will be fine. Next year of course things will look a whole lot prettier, with the landscaping, etc and general area completed.

Wonder who the drivers are doing the testing here at Yas?

Only 47 days to race day!!

Yas Marina Circuit ready for racing

ABU DHABI // The Yas Marina Circuit was handed over by its developer to the organisers of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on schedule yesterday, two and a half years after construction started and six weeks before the track’s first race. Bruno Senna, nephew of the late racing champion Ayrton Senna, marked the occasion by completing the first official lap of the track in a Formula One car.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, attended the festivities.

The new racetrack will host the first Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on November 1. The final event of the 2009 Formula One season is expected to attract almost 60,000 fans to Yas Marina to see a field of drivers that will include the current points leader, Jenson Button, the reigning world champion, Lewis Hamilton, and two-time world champion, Fernando Alonso.

The new track is “an impressive example of the home-grown initiatives taking place in Abu Dhabi”, Khaldoon al Mubarak, the chairman of Abu Dhabi Motorsports Management (ADMM), said in a statement. “We congratulate Aldar Properties on delivering one of the most sophisticated motorsport circuits ever built.”

It took 14,000 workers more than 35 million man hours to build the 5.55km circuit. It is covered with 720,000 square metres of asphalt, and was constructed with 225,000 cubic metres of concrete and 25km of electrical cables.

The race weekend will run from October 30 to November 1 and include three support races: the Porsche Mobil1 Supercup, the Chevrolet Supercars Middle East Challenge, and the GP2 Asia Series.

Richard Cregan, the chief executive of Yas Marina Circuit and ADMM, said 90 per cent of the tickets for the Grand Prix had been sold. The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will be Formula One’s first dusk-to-night race, starting at 5pm and running under floodlights until after dark.

Future events at Yas Marina include a race for Australia’s V8 Supercars on February 18-20.

Yes, I do believe we can stick our necks out now and "dare" to say those magic words we've all been longing to hear.

Nice shots
