Yas Marina Circuit all set for bumper fifth anniversary celebrations
Abu Dhabi, UAE. Monday 14 October, 2013: With this year’s FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX now fewer than three weeks away, ticket sales have entered the final straight, with Yas Marina Circuit announcing that fewer than 2500 tickets remain.
Excited fans gathered today in Khalidiyah Mall’s Etihad Store in Abu Dhabi, to get their hands on some of the last remaining tickets for this year’s FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX which promises to be a spectacular event, with bumper entertainment planned for the fifth anniversary race weekend.
“With fewer than three weeks to go and only one more race before the teams arrive in Abu Dhabi, the excitement is certainly building”, said Richard Cregan, CEO of Yas Marina Circuit. “We’re expecting more fans than ever before this year. As we look forward to another sell-out event, we encourage customers to book their tickets as soon as they can”.
For those F1® fans eager not to miss out on the on and off-track action, Yas Marina Circuit has advised that tickets are still available in Marina and South Grandstands, but with very limited availability.
Following Fernando Alonso’s fourth place finish in the Japanese Grand Prix, the Formula 1 Driver’s Championship is still open. In fact, Sebastien Vettel may well end up clinching his fourth consecutive title at the 2013 FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX.
Off-track, the entertainment promises to bigger and better than ever before, with four After-Race concerts exclusive to F1® ticket holders: Amr Diab, Elissa, and Hussain Al Jasmi on Thursday night, rap legend JAY Z on Friday, MUSE on Saturday and Depeche Mode on Sunday.
Yas Marina Circuit’s Oasis entertainment areas will also play host to driver autograph sessions and a variety of performers, including musical acts, capoeira maestros, DJs, visual artists, the ever popular human statue and many others.
