Abu Dhabi Grand Prix timetable

Hi.

(first off appologies if this isn't in the right place - I had a look and couldn't decide on anywhere better!)

Does anyone know what the support races are going to be for the Abu Dhabi grand prix this year? Is there a timetable published anywhere yet? I'm going and getting a bit excited now!

(Incidentally - why is it called the Abu Dhabi GP, and not the United Arab Emirates Grand Prix?)

Cheers!

My guess... They don't want to promote the regions around them because they have put a trillion billion dollar sportscomplex there and it would be a bit silly to promote the UAE instead of Abu Dhabi.

Still, isn't that like having the Texas Grand Prix instead of the US Grand Prix?

Abu Dhabi is the capital of the UAE, so that's probably why they wanted to name the GP after the city.
