“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 Dh1,800 for two days and Dh2,000 for three days, with the same pricing for all seats. The circuit is offering a 20 per cent discount for a limited period, with tickets selling at Dh1,440 and Dh1,600 respectively until May 31.

Premium “Category 1” tickets: Available at Dh4,250, 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 Dh16,900, 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.
