Track of The Month – November 2018
Yas Marina, Abu Dhabi
November’s Track of the Month at The Race Centre is the Yas Marina circuit in the United Arab Emirates.
A 3.4-mile circuit, Yas Marina has been the season-ending race on the Formula 1 calendar since 2009, meaning this years race will be the 10th edition. Designed by German Herman Tilke, the 21 corner circuit is a real challenge for both car and driver. The first sector is full of high-speed cornering sequences, the middle sector combines straight line speed with heavy breaking, and the final sector containing multiple slow and technical sequences. Make sure to come down to The Race Centre to test yourself at Yas Marina this month!
Have a look below for an onboard lap of Yas Marina with the Mercedes of Valteri Bottas, who set the fastest lap in last years race.
We hope you enjoy this fantastic circuit and the cars we have chosen!
