Bid to turn Abu Dhabi's youngsters into Lewis Hamiltons of tomorrow

Yas Marina Circuit bosses have released a nifty new initiative aimed at developing Abu Dhabi's youngsters into the Lewis Hamiltons of tomorrow.

An electronic handbook called the Junior Motorsport Book is now available for download online and it's packed full of helpful and interesting tips, facts and advice.

It comes as the capital gears up to mark the tenth anniversary of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix tomorrow (Sunday).

Al  Tareq  Al  Ameri,  CEO  of  Yas  Marina  Circuit,  said: “One  of  Yas  Marina  Circuit’s  key objectives  is  to  provide  young  people  with  a  platform  to  enter  motorsport. 

“This  starts with  helping  children  make  a  strong  connection  with  the  sport  from  a  young  age.   

“The  features  and  information  in  the  Junior  Motorsport  Book  will help  young  people  to better  understand  the  sport  and  to  appreciate  the  story  behind  the on-track  action.”

Key  features  of  the  Junior  Motorsport  Book  include  full  team  and  driver  profiles,  a  facts  and  figures  section. 

It also  provides  children  with   a  guide  on  things  to  do  at  Yas  Marina  Circuit,  inspirational  stories  of  drivers  including  Lewis  Hamilton,  and  young  and  upcoming  local  racers  such as  Amna  Al  Qubaisi  and  Rashid  Al  Dhaheri  and  advice  on  how  to  embark  on  your  own  motorsport  careers.   

From  karting  to  regional  youth  championships  to  the  international  stage  of  GP3  and  F2,  the  book  plots  a  course  for  the  younger generation  to  follow  in  their  heroes’ footsteps.
