Abu Dhabi GP a sell-out, organisers say

The inaugural Abu Dhabi Grand Prix at the stunning Yas Marina Circuit next Sunday is a sell-out, organisers have confirmed.

Around 50,000 tickets have been sold for the event, which will be Formula One first twilight Grand Prix, with the race starting around dusk at 1700 hours local time and finishing in the dark under floodlights.

“We’ve had an amazing response locally, nationally and internationally and every ticket has been sold,” confirmed Richard Cregan, CEO of Yas Marina Circuit.

“This will be an historic race of firsts: the first F1 race at Yas Marina Circuit; the first day into evening F1 race – with only one driver who will forever be recognised in F1 history as the winner of the inaugural Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

“For all the fans attending the event, we aim to give them a truly memorable experience.”

Organisers are also offering an array of F1-related entertainment activities for residents in Abu Dhabi.

“This free programme ensures that everyone in Abu Dhabi is able to experience the excitement of the race as they watch it live at the city’s Corniche beach,” Cregan added.
