Are you attending the end-of-season spectacular?

F1 is entering a new era with lower, wider and faster cars making this season possibly the fastest ever and most spectacular for fans to watch.

With all this excitement surrounding the new F1 season, the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix continues to offer its incredible array of ticket packages available to suit fans, families and entertainment seekers ahead of the event.

All ticket categories for 2017 have been maintained at 2016 prices at locations such as Abu Dhabi Hill and the five Grandstands.

This year will see the ‘GP Parks Pass’ return and the new ‘Kids Go Free’ package introduced, providing additional flexibility and value.

With each three-day adult Grandstand ticket purchased, ‘Kids Go Free’. This means that one child under 12 will get free Friday entry to that Grandstand, as well as enjoying free access to Yas Waterworld and Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.

This option will bring the whole family together to celebrate the region’s biggest and best sporting and entertainment weekend.

The ‘GP Parks Pass’ is a three-day package that allows unlimited access to Yas Island Parks – Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and Yas Waterworld – on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

This special three-day ticket package starts from AED1,120 (for Abu Dhabi Hill) and will only be available for purchase until May 31 from all ticket outlets. Please visit the website for more details of all ‘GP Parks Pass’ options.

Those booking before May 31 will be eligible for a 30 per cent discount.

Corporate clients will also be rewarded with discounts for early booking of the Circuit’s wide range of hospitality solutions available during race weekend, with new products announced.

With the 2017 Formula One Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on November 24-26 confirmed as the final race of the 2017 season, fans will not want to miss out on the climax to what promises to be the most exciting championship battle in years.

Al Tareq Al Ameri, CEO of Yas Marina Circuit, said: “Since our inaugural race in 2009, I’m yet to experience as much anticipation for a Formula 1 season. The new technical rules haven’t just changed the appearance of the cars – they have made them faster and much more challenging to drive. As we just saw in Melbourne, the new rules will mean a whole new experience for everyone attending the 2017 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.”

Mohammad Al Bulooki, Executive Vice President Commercial, Eithad Airways, added: “As title sponsor of the Formula One Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix since the inaugural race in 2009, the F1 race has been an incredibly important event for the Etihad Airways’ brand and for Abu Dhabi as a destination.

“Etihad Airways will again activate its global marketing resources to promote this thrilling race to ensure, alongside its partners, that visitors have a truly memorable experience.”

Away from the track, ticket holders are guaranteed a packed four days of entertainment that kicks off with a return of ‘Super Thursday’ following its successful introduction last year.

In addition to the Pit Lane Walk, the day will see the first performance by world-class musical artists at the daily After-Race concert, as well as the opening of the Main Oasis area.
