Royal Drive 2010 Event Schedule & Highlights:

Royal Drive 2010 kicks off on Thursday 18th of march when the drivers gather at the 5 star Yas Hotel at Yas Island, Abu Dhabi. Yas Island is host to the Yas Marina F1 track that hosted the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix for the first time this year. The hotel is integrated with the track as the race track runs more or less through the hotel. Later this year the F1 track, multiple marina’s and golf courses on Yas Island will be accompanied by the first Ferrari theme park in the world: Ferrari World.

After a gala-dinner on the opening night the participants can have good nights rest for a track day at the Yas Marina Circuit the next morning, Friday 19th march. Thousands of horses will be unleashed on the fresh asphalt of the F1 track, something that will be viewed and enjoyed by spectators and press!

After lunch at the track the teams pack up and leave Yas Island for a brief visit to Abu Dhabi’s Corniche, the famous beach boulevard of the UAE’s capital. This boulevard also featured in the Top Gear episode where Richard Hammond races the Lamborghini Murcielago LP670 SV vs the McLaren SLR 722 Edition.

After a long night, the final day of the event will be very relaxed. A scenic route will take the supercars and their owners to Dubai Marina. The route will go over Sheikh Zayed Road (or ‘skyscraper alley’ as we like to call it), past the Burj al Arab and the Palm Jumeirah (the first man made island in the shape of a huge palm tree).
