Abu Dhabi GP tickets selling out fast
6 June, 2010
Jun.06 (YallaF1.com) More than half the tickets for November’s Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix have been sold within two weeks of going on sale – well ahead of results for the same period a year ago for last year’s sell-out event.
Tickets went on sale for the UAE community on 16 May and globally on 17 May, and 52% had been sold by yesterday, with the bulk of buyers to date living in the UAE and Europe.
“We’re delighted with the initial sales success,” said Richard Cregan, Chief Executive Officer of Yas Marina Circuit, which will host the race on 12-14 November. “This is a reflection of the following and interest that the event has generated. I believe that our policy of charging the same price for all grandstand seats this year is resonating with fans.
“We still have tickets available in all the grandstands, but they are selling fast. Now is the time to buy, before people find their preferred area is no longer available.”
The 2010 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix offers three ticket categories:
Grandstand ticket: These tickets are priced at AED 1,800 for two days and AED 2,000 for three days, with the same pricing for all seats. A 20% discount is being offered for a limited period, with tickets selling at AED1,440 and AED1,600 respectively.
Premium “Category 1” ticket: Available at AED4,250, or AED3,400 with the 20% limited-period discount, these three-day tickets offer the chance to enjoy balcony seating, air-conditioned lounges with food and beverage service, and parking.
Paddock Club ticket: Starting from AED14,480, these prestigious one, two or three-day tickets enable race-goers to enjoy a full VIP experience throughout the race weekend.
