Only 200 tickets remain unsold for the 2010 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix with just four days to go before the race weekend begins on 12 November. With more than 42,000 seats already sold, the final race of the 2010 F1 World Championship looks set to be played out in front of a capacity crowd.
“We are delighted with the way tickets have sold this year,” said Richard Cregan, Chief Executive Officer of Yas Marina Circuit. “Our inaugural event last year was sold out, andwe expect the final tickets to sell in the next 24 hours.“One factor helping ticket sales this year was charging one flat price for all grandstandseats, regardless of where they are. Another was expanding our oasis areas so we could provide a wider variety of entertainment and leisure activities, and adding our new Kartzone which will be open for the Grand Prix. And we mustn’t forget the added excitement created by the closeness of this year’s title battle.”
Tickets for the 2010 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix went on sale on 16 May and50% were sold within one month. The prestigious Paddock Club tickets, offering a full VIP race experience, sold out almost immediately and attracted a long waiting list. Grand Prix title sponsor Etihad Airways reports that all its flights into Abu Dhabi are also very heavily booked, with aircraft from some cities already full. “We are gearing up for one of the busiest periods of the year at our hub in Abu Dhabi,” said James Hogan, Chief Executive Officer. “We’re looking forward to serving the many thousands of
International visitors who start arriving this week for the second Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.” Hotels too report strong bookings, with all seven hotels on Yas Island already full and others like the newly opened five-star Grand Millennium Al Wahda in Abu Dhabi also booked to capacity.
Among the visitors to the iconic trackside Yas Hotel will be six lucky Golden Ticket winners and their partners, who won “the prize that money can’t buy” when tickets first went on sale. In addition to three nights at the Yas Hotel, they will be enjoying the race from the Paddock Club, having breakfast with an F1 driver, watching race practice from
the team garages and receiving other privileges. “The scene is set for a thrilling race weekend for all the family,” said Cregan. “In addition to the track action, visitors can look forward to the after-show concerts and an even broader range of entertainment than last year. There will be live music, DJs, BMX bikers, acrobatic basketball, breakdancing, skateboarding, a solar artist and much more. We are in for a fabulous festival of motorsport.”
The final 200 tickets are available online at www.yasmarinacircuit.ae, at the call centre on 800 YAS (927) or at selected Etihad Airways shops.Back to news
