Traditional Arabian dhows carry the banner of a new F1 race to be held annually in Abu Dhabi starting in 2009. The promotional festival brought together F1 teams and their drivers for a mock race on the city’s streets and was open and free to the public. Fast cars are a common sight in the UAE’s capital city which is also home to a Ferrari themed amusement park.
