2011 FORMULA 1TM ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX NEARLY SOLD OUT
Yas Marina Circuit urges people to hurry with only 4000 tickets left
Abu Dhabi, 12 October 2011: With just under a month to go before the 2011 Formula 1TM Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix only 4,000 tickets remain on offer. Confident of a third successive sellout, Yas Marina Circuit is urging fans to purchase tickets now to avoid disappointment.
Peter Baumgartner, Chief Commercial Officer at Etihad Airways - the event’s title sponsor, commented, “When you think that around 4,000 people arrive by plane in the UAE every 30 minutes, these tickets are going to go fast.
Whilst Etihad Airways is looking forward to welcoming thousands of travelers to the UAE for the Formula 1TM Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, it would be disappointing to see residents miss out.”
Priced at AED 1,800 for two days and AED 2,000 for three days, Grandstand tickets are still available in the following areas:
South Grandstand: Encompassing a spectacular backdrop of the marina and Yas Hotel, and uncompromised views over several of the circuits challenging turns and corners.
Marina Grandstand: Situated in close viewing proximity of the support race Pit Lane, the Marina Grandstand provides continuous views of the drivers racing around the south section of the circuit, including the famous pass under Yas Hotel.
Nick McElwee, Marketing and Communications Director of Yas Marina Circuit said, “The excitement at the circuit is mounting daily as we count down the days. The racing is always world class and the drivers will be racing hard to ensure they have drives for next season. It is going to be another year of celebrations on and off the track, and with such a small quantity of tickets left, I can’t stress how important it is to secure yours today.”
