Abu Dhabi: Yas Marina Circuit appoints Al Tareq Al Ameri as new CEO

UAE National Al Ameri previously ran the commercial division at the Circuit and will now take forward the business as a whole

Abu Dhabi, Yas Marina Circuit, Apr 2nd 2014) – The Board of Abu Dhabi Motorsport Management has announced that Mr Al Tareq Al Ameri has been officially appointed Chief Executive Officer of Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi.

The UAE National previously ran the commercial division at the Circuit and will now take forward the business as a whole.

Mr Al Ameri was part of the team who have, in the last five years, developed Yas Marina Circuit into not only one of the world’s most iconic motorsport venues, but also a dynamic community hub for thousands of residents of Abu Dhabi, as well as a venue for significant global gatherings.

Every month, Yas Marina Circuit welcomes an average of 25,000 people who take part in a range of activities, including go karting and track cycling nights to healthy lifestyle programs and special events.

Yas Marina Circuit Chairman, HE Khaldoon Al Mubarak, said: “With the success of the past five years as a catalyst, I look forward to Al Tareq leading the further growth of this business, which encompasses both meaningful social engagement and sustainable commercial outcomes.”

Mr Al Ameri began the handover from departing CEO Richard Cregan at the start of the year and is determined to build on the strong foundations of the last five years. Richard Cregan will retain an advisory role at Yas Marina Circuit reporting to the Board, and will now lead the F1 Russian Grand Prix.

From hosting incredible F1 weekends that have set new standards in the world of motorsport to the launch of a full calendar of community events, Yas Marina Circuit is now a market leader.

Mr Al Ameri, 34, said: “Since coming to Yas Marina Circuit to lead the commercial division I have been bitten by the motorsport bug – and that will always be our core business.

“The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is an iconic fixture on the F1 calendar and that alone is a truly fantastic achievement for everyone involved.

“The Grand Prix will always be the focus but we must keep driving forward what we do throughout the year – from exciting motorsport racing to bringing even more fantastic events to the circuit.

“In 2011 and 2013 we hosted the World Economic Forum which shows we are so much more than just a racetrack. That strategy will continue and we will be fighting for business in the market.”

Prior to taking the role as Commercial Director at Yas Marina Circuit in October 2012, Mr Al Ameri’s career developed at Abu Dhabi Aviation.

He added: “Yas Marina Circuit is truly passionate about motorsport – here in the UAE, in the region and globally.

“I understand that passion and I am also ready for the challenge and responsibility of developing all areas of the business.”

What a race it was brilliant and exciting Max is so exciting to watch

Interlagos has always produced a great race since it’s current version was first used in 1990. Can only imagine how the 2017 onwards cars would’ve looked/performed on the original 5 mile layout, used between 1973-1980

Still think HAM should have kept 3rd place. ALB left the door wide open, realised it and tried to make up for his mistake and close it. Turned in too late and got it wrong!

Not much focus on Gasly here. It was an amazing podium for him this one. Showed all the potential pressure from RedBull wasted last season.

Fantastic to hear the comments on Max from a UK channel, they understand and accept his dominance in this sport. If you listen closely they even make it look if there own countrymen Lewis is really no match when both drivers have an equal car. #independentskysports

Best 10-15 laps in F1 I have seen during last 20 years. Purely awesome.

Not even in the highlights Carlos is shown

One of the best races in 2019 ❤️

When Riccardo hit Magnussen Martin Brundle blamed Ricciardo (which was correct) But when Hamilton tried a similar move on Albon Brundle blamed him for leaving the door open 🤔

Would be an even better watch without David Croft shouting at everything.

Everyone noticing vettel-leclerc move, but did anyone notice leclerc-norris one at the end of first lap ? What if Norris didn't move ?

And the highlights of Carlos Sainz? He was the second best of the race

I'm in love with Max's driving style. Brilliant racer. Vettel showed why he should be kicked out from Ferrari.

Best race of the decade! Best of Max!

Vettel once again make a stupid move..

Brilliant driver Max Verstappen

VTEC kicked in for Max and Gasly...

Kevin Magnussen wheel to wheel with Fernando Norris

On the coming days max is gonna be the strongest one from anyone

Disaster for Ferrari...

What is Kubica and Williams hurrying FOR??? LOL!

Seems like this page has been obsessed with this race for the past 48 hours....!!😜

Leclerec vettel 😡😡

Oh Max !! We need more of you!

Kevin Nash Jordan Duller this got my heart racing!! I miss it😭😭

I was fortunately there to see that historic win by petruix. I will never forget the crowd and how wild they went 😁

Overtake 2 ducatis in one shoot but his fan says honda is the big problem bike on grid

Two for the price of one. Cheeky, but a nice move.

I have the entire 2019 season recorded and am sitting here watching the Catalunya race as I type. Mugello was a great race, well done Danilo!!

20 year dream was supposed to be coming true right now! 😭😭😭

Is that it... And nobody else has ever passed two riders in one move. Happens early laps, mid pack, every other race.... Move on

One of the best wins ever!

Great race 👌🏁

what an exciting moment!

Bashed poor old dovi( who was being an old woman b t w) out and stuffed the maggot well and truly, if that happens in every race, by any rider(even his bro) my legs will ache from jumping up and down and my throat WIll be sore from shouting approval, and the neighbour's will think I've flipped

Do we have a date set for the first live race of 2020 yet?

..... and sacked....
