Discovery Day

  • Discovery Day 2018 (in partnership with Department of Culture And Tourism - Adu Dhabi)

    Attendees had the opportunity to experience the newest attractions that Abu Dhabi has to offer, starting with panoramic views of the Abu Dhabi corniche then moving to the Yas Island for activities and the Welcome Reception. You can see everything that was on offer below.



    Go-karting on an 800m track was included in the itinerary of activities on Yas Island. The beauty of karting is that you don’t have to be a professional racer to quickly get a feel for the sport. We especially encouraged beginners to take part!


    Drag Racing

    Attendees had the opportunity to participate in drag racing in the Chevrolet Camaro SS, fitted with a 400-horsepower 6.2-litre V8 engine and automatic transmission. They experienced the high-octane adrenaline rush of this car as it ran from zero to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds and through the quarter-mile in 13.3 seconds.


    Pit Stop Challenge

    Quick thinking and teamwork were key to this exhilarating team-building exercise, which offered a different take on the racing experience. Individuals had to work together to complete a pit stop tyre change in the fastest time possible. Succeeding here required high levels of communication, decision-making and co-operation.


    Venue Tour of Yas Marina Circuit

    Attendees explored one of the world’s most advanced Formula 1® circuits from the inside out. On a guided Venue Tour of Yas Marina Circuit, exhibitors and buyers immersed themselves  in a world usually seen only by race drivers and their teams.
