Yas Marina Circuit has given a new lease of life to surplus motoring parts from Yas Racing School by upcycling items such as disused crankshafts, tyres, oil drums and signage to create bespoke furniture which is now being enjoyed by thousands of race goers at the Main Oasis area at the 2016 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
