Check second post of this thread, names of who will be attending.
Im pretty sure also King Abdullah will come with one or two of his brothers and not alone.

I like how Sheikh Mohammed briefed the King and not anyone else, it shows how much he knows and the two are quite interested in the event.

Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed was driving the President Sheikh Khalifa.
I dont think it was just a hangout but an opeing of a huge event.
Personally I dont think you can focus for about 2hrs on cars going round :biggrin: Well, I couldnt (I attended) maybe because I wasnt so interested.
Thanks for the video.
