Exclusive GP Announces Superyacht Charter for F1 Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi

F1 Grand Prix in Abu dhabi

With the annual 2017 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix fast approaching, Exclusive GP is offering an exclusive superyacht package in coordination with its recently gained position as the only UK-based F1® Experiences Partner to operate worldwide.

As the main authorized partner of F1® Experience packages for UK tourists visiting Abu Dhabi to attend the upcoming race on November 25th, Exclusive GP has arranged a broad variety of packages for UK residents planning on attending. The company is known for giving its clients unparalleled access to racetrack events.

During the 2017 Formula 1 United States Grand Prix in October, Exclusive GP succeeded in arranging to have one of its guests, Martin Richards, to be present next to the podium when Lewis Hamilton won the Grand Prix. Thanks to his placement on the podium, Richards unexpectedly got to be the person who handed the Union Jack to Hamilton before the national anthem played.

Martin Richards, British F1 supporter traveled with Exclusive GP to the United States Grand Prix. The image of an excited Richards handing the Union Flag to race victor Lewis Hamilton was captured on TV and one of the most widely circulated press images from the event.

Martin Richards said; “I am Lewis Hamilton’s biggest fan, so to have the opportunity given by Exclusive GP to stand right next to the winners podium was unbelievable. As you can see from my face, for Lewis to run over and grab the Union Jack from me before the National Anthem is a proud memory that I will cherish all my life! If it is at all possible, I was even prouder when he handed it back to me and shook my hand.”

The image of Exclusive GP client Richards handing the flag to the Grand Prix winner is one of the most widely circulated press images from the entire event.

“Enabling F1 enthusiasts like Martin Richards to get so close to their heroes and take away memorable experiences is exactly what F1® Experiences was set up for. The Austin Grand Prix was a huge success for all those who attended with us and we look forward to repeating this in Abu Dhabi.” Brian Learst – CEO, F1® Experiences

Now, in Abu Dhabi, Exclusive GP in conjunction with F1® Experiences, offers full weekend hospitality packages that include watching the Grand Prix from the comfort and luxury of a chartered superyacht, enjoying unlimited open bar access, a walk through the Pit Lane, and Meet and Greets with F1 drivers such as Esteban Ocan. Exclusive GP also offers premium access to the Paddock Club Party, attended by F1® racers like Stoffel Vandoorne.

Joe Sapak, Managing Director of Exclusive GP says: “Abu Dhabi is a firm favourite with British F1® fans. It is undoubtedly the combination of it being the finale of the F1 season, the stunning setting of the Yas Marina circuit with its yachts and floodlit racing and of course the glorious Abu Dhabi November sunshine.”

“Exclusive GP has been taking clients to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix since the inaugural 2009 F1® race at Yas Marina. That year we were privileged to charter a yacht and host the Yas Marina circuit designer Hermann Tilke and 78 members of his design team and clients.

“It has been very exciting to watch how Formula One has developed F1® Experiences to provide fans with unique benefits and access not available anywhere else. In July 2017, Exclusive GP was proud to be appointed the only Official F1® Experiences Partner in the United Kingdom.”

In addition to ultimate access to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and its related after parties and events, Exclusive GP also offers complete luxury transportation services for concurrent Abu Dhabi events. This includes VIP access to local concerts scheduled for late November – Calvin Harris, Mumford & Sons, Kendrick Lamar, and P!NK will all be performing in Abu Dhabi.
