The excitement though spills outside the racetrack and miles away from the Formula 1 venue.
The Galleria Al Maryah Island is hosting a host of action-packed activities today until Saturday, 23rd November, from 4pm to 10pm, in anticipation of the upcoming race weekend.
Children from four to 10 years old can buckle up at the Kids Driving School on the ground floor designed with pop up track for a mini racing adventure.
Here, budding little drivers will be taught driving and safety basics before making their way to the mini push bike race-cars. A driving school certificate will be issued for kids to take home.
Meanwhile, teen and adults can step on the gas like a race champ at the Racing Stimulator on the ground floor in the north atrium by Debenhams.
Lewis Hamilton wannabes can choose their preferred car, color and driving method for the exciting race.
More action awaits at the Racing Game – a thrilling competition where two players can race miniature cars around a track using bike pedal power to outlast opponents.
Guests can also pose beside a life-size F1 racing car for that #AtTheGalleria photo opportunity. This is great for all selfie fanatics out there.
