The inaugural Abu Dhabi Grand Prix has been allocated an October race date for 2009, it has emerged.

The largest of the seven United Arab Emirates last year penned a minimally seven-year deal for a race, to be held on the man-made Yas Island located to the east of Abu Dhabi island.

"Spectators will enjoy close, competitive racing played out on three distinct sections of the 5.6km race track. These include high speed areas ending in tight overtaking turns, a street section and a marina section, all of which combine to deliver an unrivalled Formula 1 viewing experience. It will be one of the longest and most demanding tracks in the world, and will include an iconic grandstand hairpin for the ultimate in spectator entertainment," reads an Abu Dhabi Grand Prix press release.

The Daily Telegraph newspaper this week revealed that the 2009 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, title-sponsored by Ferrari backer Etihad Airways, will be held in October next year.

It was previously believed that the race could be given an early spot on the 2009 calendar.
