Let’s be honest here. Now that the Eid buzz has died down, it’s all about the Abu Dhabi Formula One F1 Grand Prix this weekend; the Flash Entertainment concerts and the hot racers burning rubber on the Yas Marina Circuit from November 11.
But while all roads are leading to the capital, there are those who don’t understand what the fuss is all about. And just for you, Emirates 24|7 has brought you gripping action and cultural delights in your own backyard.
