SPIRIT MEETS SPEED AT YAS MARINA CIRCUIT
YAS CELEBRATES 41st U.A.E. NATIONAL DAY
Abu Dhabi 2 December, 2012: Over 200 staff members Yas Marina Circuit congregated on-track this week to celebrate the UAE’s 41st Anniversary with a commemorative photo in front of a Formula Yas 3000 from the circuit’s own fleet of racing vehicles.
Following the fourth consecutive sell-out for the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, a race that many F1 fans and commentators have called the race of the 2012 season, this year’s National Day was a particularly meaningful occasion for all.
“As we take a moment to reflect and celebrate the UAE’s many achievements over the past forty one years, we are also taking a moment to reflect upon our own journey,” said Richard Cregan, Chief Executive Officer of Yas Marina Circuit. “We are proud of our contribution to the UAE, and as a circuit for and by the people of Abu Dhabi, we wish to thank all members of the community, from our leadership, to our own dedicated staff, to the men and women of the UAE who have supported us from the very beginning. It is with their support that we look forward to the future.”
