A GP2 race is to be contested under the night sky for the very first time in Abu Dhabi next month.

The initial schedule for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend show the GP2 Feature Race penciled in after F1 Qualifying at 18:40 local time on the Saturday evening.

GP3 took this slot last year and held its first night race at the same time.

GP2 has ran under floodlights in the past; in Abu Dhabi last year for Qualifying and in Bahrain earlier this year for Qualifying also.

The Qualifying session for the Feature Race will also be held at night on the evening prior to the Feature Race.

The schedule for the weekend is, of course, subject to change.
