F1TM tickets go on sale for 2011 Grand Prix

Abu Dhabi, UAE (27 April): Tickets for November’s Formula 1TM Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix go on sale this Thursday (28 April) as Yas Marina Circuit prepares to stage its third sell-out race weekend. The race will take place at Yas Marina Circuit on 11-13 November.

Tickets will be available from a wider range of outlets than ever, including selected Etihad Airways shops, Virgin Megastores across the GCC, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi YMC kiosk, the Yas Hotel and Yas Marina Circuit itself. They are also available from the 800 YAS (927) call centre and from the website at www.yasmarinacircuit.ae.

“The Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is already an established part of the UAE’s sporting and social calendar,” said Richard Cregan, Chief Executive Officer of Yas Marina Circuit. “And this year’s Grand Prix takes place during the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the UAE, so we hope that people will embrace the Grand Prix as part of their 2011 National Day festivities.”

The 2011 Formula 1TM Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will offer three ticket categories:

Grandstand tickets: These tickets will be priced at last year’s level of AED 1,800 for two days and AED 2,000 for three days, with the same pricing for all seats. The circuit is offering a 20% discount for a limited period, with tickets selling at AED 1,440 and AED 1,600 respectively until 31 May.

Premium “Category 1” tickets:  Available at AED 4,250, also unchanged from last year, these three-day tickets offer the chance to enjoy balcony seating, air-conditioned lounges with food and beverage service, and complimentary parking.

Paddock Club tickets: Starting from AED 16,900, these prestigious two- or three-day tickets enable race-goers to enjoy a full VIP experience.
“This season is already proving to be the most exciting in recent F1 history,” Cregan said. “We have plans to make the Abu Dhabi event even more exciting than before, so I believe race-goers are in for a real treat at Yas this year.”

The inaugural 2009 Formula 1TM Etihad Airways Grand Prix was named Event of the year by the FIA, the ruling body of motorsport. Abu Dhabi TV was named Broadcaster of the Year by Formula One Management for its coverage of the 2010 event. Both events were sold out and the races were viewed by a global TV audience of hundreds of millions.
