Headlining these events will be the Red Bull Air Race, which forms part of the Abu Dhabi Aerospace & Aviation Week in March.
n addition, the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in November will see Formula 1 race car drivers reaching speeds of more than 300kph as they battle each other on the Yas Marina Circuit for the closing race of the 2016 Formula 1 season.
The Abu Dhabi Classics, which run until 10 May is an eight-month-long event featuring 26 classical concerts and performances by musicians, orchestras and Western and Eastern classical music. These performances will take place in the UAE capital, Saadiyat Island, Liwa desert and Al Ain.
Sultan Al Mansoori, GCC Country Manager, TCA Abu Dhabi, said: “The UAE’s capital of Abu Dhabi continues to live up to its well-established reputation as a preferred and sought-after destination for exciting family-oriented fun and entertainment.
“For 2016, we have worked even harder to bring bigger and better events that offer more fun and excitement. Accordingly, we would like to encourage families and tourists from the GCC to carefully plan their year-long calendar in order not to miss out on their favourite events.”
