In 2011, the Formula 1 Race was scheduled at Yas Island the weekend of my visit to Abu Dhabi. Yas Island is the destination for events, concerts and luxury hotels in town. The track and event was in close proximity to where I worked, so, when asked, I, and a few others, seized the opportunity to sneak a peek of the track and cars in action. It was a pretty cool experience to say the least. The power, speed and decibels that those engines produce is awe inspiring.
