oh dear

May 23 (GMM) The Abu Dhabi grand prix could be staged at night, because the new Yas Marina circuit will be equipped with floodlighting, boss Philippe Gurdjian revealed at Monaco on Saturday.

This year's November season finale in the United Arab Emirates capital is scheduled to take place in daylight.

But when asked about emulating the success of Singapore's night race, Gurdjian said: "We have the possibility to do it.

"(Artificial) light will be in place," he added.

Well, the circuits is amazing according to these photos. I have realized that the pit exit goes under the race track and one of the ways out (after the loooooooooooooooooooooong straight) is under the tribune. It will be great for spectators who seat there because they will be nearer to the track than other tracks

Tried it on all three browsers I have... On IE it crawls to load, skips the audio and doesn't work. Firefox and Chrome it does the same. I even tried it on my quad core with 8 gigs of ram and it loads but still doesn't allow any button clicks for "registration" and "race" so all I have is a nice flag whipping in the wind and some engines flying by sounds but no race... Anyone able to play?
