British couple say trip to Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will be 'honeymoon they never had'

Luxury trip was won at this weekend's British Grand Prix and includes return flights to Abu Dhabi, luxury hotel stay and all-access passes to Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

ABU DHABI // A British couple who run a nursery school by day will be treated to the high life in Abu Dhabi in November after winning a luxury trip to the grand prix.

The Thompsons found their winning ticket in one of 20,000 gift bags distributed to campers at a site near Silverstone circuit this weekend.

The ticket entitles them to two return flights to Abu Dhabi, four nights' stay in a luxury hotel and weekend access to the F1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, including the after-race concerts by bands such as Muse and Depeche Mode.

The couple, who is celebrating their tenth wedding anniversary next month, said the Abu Dhabi trip would be the honeymoon they never had.
