70% Of 2011 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Tickets Sold

70% of tickets for November’s Formula 1TM Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix have been sold, with only 3 months to go. Yas Marina Circuit, the event organisers, are confident of another sell-out event. Grandstand tickets for the Main, North and West Grandstands have all sold out, along with the Paddock Club.

“We are pleased with the way ticket sales are tracking and it is shaping up to be another great event,” commented Richard Cregan, Chief Executive Officer of Yas Marina Circuit. "Preparations are in the final stages for our race here in Abu Dhabi. We are confident our customers will enjoy one of the most exciting sporting and entertainment experiences in the world.”

Aside from F1, there will be an array of entertainment for spectators: three support races; Circuit TV broadcast to the big screens; Fan Zones full of family activities, street performers and DJ’s; plus, the concerts that extend each day’s fun into the evening.

“The excitement continues throughout the day and night," Cregan continued. "Rather than it being just a race, we pride ourselves in providing something more like a carnival weekend.”

“Whilst there are still 30% of tickets left, the choice of ticket is becoming sparse. We would encourage anyone interested to tie up their booking now to avoid disappointment.”

Currently, standard tickets are available in the Marina and South Grandstands, with limited tickets in the South Club. For those seeking seats in the Main Grandstand, a limited number of premium “Category 1” tickets are still open.
