Overview

NEW FOR 2018 - Choose to stay in Abu Dhabi or Dubai during the race weekend! 

Each year more and more people are discovering the delights of a Grand Prix weekend in Abu Dhabi. The combination of excellent hotels, amazing circuit facilities and guaranteed sunshine make the 2018 Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix an attractive proposition.

Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates, and owes its existence to the chance discovery of fresh water on the island around 250 years ago. The abundance of this valuable commodity ensured its growth and it is now a thriving modern, commercial city.

Nevertheless, much emphasis is placed on the origins and culture of old Arabia and the Bedouin traditions, which are carefully preserved alongside the new leisure facilities. This means the best of both worlds for our Grand Prix visitors - golf courses, spas and modern shopping malls, bazaars, souks and falconry. All cuisines are on offer in the many restaurants and the temperature averages a comfortable 24 degrees. The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2018 is definitely a winner!

For many Dubai has become a favourite holiday destination and, on our F1 two-centre tour packages, you can experience the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and spend four nights in Abu Dhabi followed by three nights in Dubai with plenty of time to enjoy the best of both Emirates. Boasting a stunning skyline, white sand beaches and calm waters Dubai is a paradise for sun lovers and watersports fans. Shopping is exceptional too with many modern shopping malls and ancient souks selling jewellery and spices. Sightseers can take a desert safari, visit the Burj Khalifa, Al Fahidi Fort and take a boat ride along the creek and through the historic centre of Dubai.

If you want to extend your trip, just call us to tailor-make the perfect 2018 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix holiday!

We were delighted with Grandstand Motor Sports organisation, updates and help with deciding tickets etc. Hopefully we will be planning more trips in the coming years. Abu Dhabi was an amazing experience, the track, the weather, night life at track, after race concerts and the Pit Lane walk were amazing experience. Nik I would just like to say thanks very much to yourself and all the team for a well planned holiday

Have used Grandstand several times to attend F1 events over the past couple of years, the last of which being Abu Dhabi 2013. Great company, great reps who know their stuff, fantastic choice of hotels and everything runs like clockwork. I would particularly like to praise Debbie whom I have dealt with a few times when arranging trips and who was on the Abu Dhabi tour in 2012, such a lovely woman. Will be using your company again next year for Singapore and maybe one or two others (finances depending of course!)
