Offering superb accommodation in great location, Yas Island Rotana is a 4 star deluxe hotel, consists of 281 rooms and 27 suites designed with International flair, modern accessories and contemporary style for guests seeking privacy and personalized service. Adjoining Yas Island Rotana and providing guests access to deluxe facilities is Centro Yas Island which is a modern, stylish and affordable business hotel brand. This 259 room hotel meets the demands of a new generation of traveler, seeking finesse and functionality at reasonable rates.
Commenting on this agreement, General Manager of Yas Island Rotana & Centro Yas Island Mr. Patrick Martinez said, “We wanted to capitalize on sports and what is better than racing sports on Yas Island home to major International, Regional and National events.”
“This sponsorship will be a strategic pace to trigger Rotana brand recognition and loyalty internationally. In addition, it will contribute to an effective communication between the brand and the motorsports lovers,” added Martinez.
Young Driver AMR is well prepared for the second season in the World Championship and enters the season opener at the amazing Yas Marina Circuit with two Aston Martin DBR9. The two V12-engine powered Aston Martin will be driven by Tomáš Enge (CZE)/ Alex Müller (GER) and Stefan Mücke (GER)/ Darren Turner (GBR).
One year ago, the inaugural race of the GT1 World Championship was also the premiere race for Young Driver AMR. With one season under their belt, the team builds on their experience in the second season on the GT1 World Championship.
“We are really looking forward to the first race at Abu Dhabi,” team principal Hardy Fischer says. “During the last month, we prepared both cars meticulous for the new season, using all the experience we collected during our first season with the Aston Martin DBR9. We are very well prepared for the new season and our goal for the first race will be to collect some good points.”
The season opener in the United Arab Emirates will be a compact two-day event. Unlike usual GT1 race weekends, the Qualifying Race and the Championship Race will be held on Saturday.
Special excitement is added to the Championship Race, as it will be held under floodlights after the sunset. This year, also a shorter version of the Yas Marina Circuit will be used, which will add even more
excitement and action to the race. Not only racing in the darkness will create a special atmosphere, also the paddock will certainly differ to usual events. The GT1 World Championship will be held together with the Abu Dhabi Yacht Show, which takes place at the marina in the paddock area and will sample some of the world’s most exclusive super yachts.
