ABU DHABI

11-12 Mar

The Corniche area of Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi will host the Red Bull Air Race for the ninth time in 2016, once again setting the scene as the action-packed opener for a brand new World Championship season. The Red Bull Air Race will kick off in style, offering fans the perfect racing destination with plenty to see, do and experience outside of the aerial racetrack.

With the racing taking place over the Arabian Gulf's sparkling blue waters, fans can witness all the action from the purpose-built race village on the Corniche breakwater. With unrivalled views of the race and the UAE capital's impressive skyline, the arena will be an entertainment focal point for all the family.

When the high-speed, low-altitude racing is over for the day, Abu Dhabi still has plenty to offer – from the multi-experiential Yas Island, home to the iconic Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and Arabia's award-winning mega waterpark, Yas Waterworld, to authentic desert experiences, majestic pearl journeys, championship golf courses and unrivalled shopping destinations.

Accommodation options abound with a wealth of world-class hotels and resorts operating across the city, each offering diverse cuisine experiences and with many providing a chic and relaxed setting to watch the world's top pilots battle it out in the skies above.

And for those wanting to get up close to the action, Abu Dhabi's Corniche boasts eight kilometres of pristine beachfront, giving fans a front row seat in breathtaking surroundings. So spread your wings and take off on the ultimate Red Bull Air Race experience with Abu Dhabi.
