Countdown to the 2013 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Begins


Ticket delivery to the 2013 FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX has officially begun. Promising to be the biggest and best Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to date, this year’s ticket packages feature a unique pop-up design incorporating a sampling of activities on Yas Island during the F1 weekend including Yas Viceroy, Yas Marina, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and the new Yas Waterworld.



“Our ‘pop-up’ design is intended as a celebration of all the attractions on Yas Island and across Abu Dhabi for our Grand Prix fans,” says Richard Cregan, Chief Executive Officer, Yas Marina Circuit.  “This year’s ticket provides a fun souvenir as well as a reminder for our increasingly international audience; we are expecting 42 percent of visitors to be from outside the UAE this year, of what they might expect when they arrive in Abu Dhabi for their memorable weekend.”

Tickets to the 2013 FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX will reach more fans than ever before due to a range of new ticket categories introduced for the first time this year. These include the Abu Dhabi Hill, the Trackside Terrace, Marina Boxes (2-3 days), Yas Marina Tower, Yas Marina Bay Suite and the first ever Grand Prix Brunch. Alongside fans who purchased tickets for one of the new categories at Yas Marina Circuit, F1 tickets will also be issued for the first time to fans that have purchased special F1 packages at the Yas Marina, as well as those who purchased F1 hotel packages from Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi.

“As the only 5 star hotel in the world that is situated on an F1 circuit, the iconic Yas Marina Circuit, we are in a unique position to offer guests both amazing views of all the race action as well as glamorous and exciting entertainment and dining experiences which will ensure a memorable weekend for everyone,”  said Oliver Bruns, Hotel Manager of Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi.  “As ticket delivery commences, we look forward to working with partners, Yas Marina Circuit and Yas Marina, to welcome and to offer the ultimate Race Weekend experience to even more race enthusiasts and fun-seekers this year who want to be part of the exhilaration for the fifth year running.”
