The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix might be eight months away – but fans can get out of the blocks early to secure their seat for the biggest sporting spectacle of the year.

The F1 season will once again reach a thrilling finale at Yas Marina Circuit on November 25 – and there will be even more high-octane action to enjoy off the track than ever before for the tenth anniversary event.

Not only will petrol heads get the chance to witness Lewis Hamilton’s bid to win a fantastic fifth world title, but some of the world’s top musical superstars will be flocking to the emirate.

A terrific 2017 race saw the likes of Calvin Harris, P!nk, Busta Rhymes and Mumford & Sons take centre stage during a series of FJ sets and gigs held during the long weekend and another high-profile line-up is expected to roar into view this year, too.

With demand for tickets always high, race chiefs are now releasing tickets for the magnificent motoring extravaganza.

Following Sunday’s F1 curtain raiser in Melbourne that saw Sebastian Vettel pip Lewis Hamilton to victory, Yas Marina Circuit has announced that tickets are now on sale with 30 per cent discounts available for those who book before May 31.

Corporate clients will also be rewarded with discounts for early booking of the Circuit’s revamped hospitality solutions available during race weekend.

For the first time ever, a Super Parks Pass will be on sale, which will include access to Yas Waterworld, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and the soon-to-launch Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi alongside tickets for the racing itself.

Using the theme of ‘Swipe Up’, Yas Marina Circuit will this year give fans the opportunity to buying tickets in preferred seats in one of five available grandstands when buying online.

New for the 10th anniversary, the one-day Paddock Club ticket has been created.

Available for Dhs3,450, the new Friday-only ticket package includes exclusive Paddock access, premium food and beverage options, plus the popular Thursday and Friday night After-Race Concerts.

Visitors can also book the new Terrace Hospitality packages in Main Grandstand with views of Turn 1 or North Grandstand overlooking the hairpin and enjoy upscale hospitality located at the ends of each Grandstand.

Club upgrades are available on three-day Grandstand tickets and provide access to an informal club with fantastic facilities including TVs showing all the racing action, outdoor seating, plus a private à la carte restaurant with cash bar.

Lounge ticket holders will be able to watch all the Formula 1 action from a reserved seat in the top level of the North Grandstand or West Grandstand with fantastic views of the North hairpin (North) and long straight (West). Offered as a three-day ticket, The Lounge provides conveniently located food and beverage outlets.

Yas Suites located in West, North and Main Grandstands are available as a three-day package (Friday, Saturday and Sunday), letting guests absorb the thrilling motorsport weekend action from the comfort of an air-conditioned Grandstand suite.

The Super Parks Pass is an upgraded three-day package that allows unlimited access to all three Yas Island Parks – Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Waterworld and Warner Bros. World™ Abu Dhabi – on Wednesday through to Sunday. This special three-day ticket package starts from Dhs1,340 (for Abu Dhabi Hill).

Families can also celebrate as last year’s popular ‘Kids Go Free’ package will return in 2018, providing additional flexibility and value.

With each three-day adult Grandstand ticket purchased, ‘Kids Go Free’. Up to four children under 12 will get free Friday entry to that Grandstand, as well as enjoying free access to the three Yas Island parks offering a real ‘Family Friday’ F1® experience.

Al Tareq Al Ameri, CEO of Yas Marina Circuit, said: “Last year proved to be a very successful weekend for us, with 60 per cent of ticket holders coming to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix from overseas. During our previous nine editions, we have built strong momentum and have set the standard for what an F1® weekend should be.

This year, as we prepare for our milestone 10th grand prix, we look forward to our biggest and best race weekend ever and hope you will join us to help celebrate.”

The whole family will be in pole position for fun with four days of entertainment kicking off with Super Thursday, when race-goers can again get up close and personal with their heroes at the Public Pit Lane Walk and the weekend’s first performance by world-class musical artists at the daily after-Race concert, as well as the opening of the Main Oasis area.

Yasalam, the music and entertainment festival, will be back for the 10th consecutive year. Produced by FLASH Entertainment, the festival will bring race goers four full nights of outstanding performances by globally renowned musical artists throughout the weekend.

Tickets are available online at www.yasmarinacircuit.com and through the Yas Marina Circuit Call Centre (800 927) or (02) 659 9800, as well as through all Etihad Shops and Virgin Megastores, Yas Central Express stand at Yas Mall.
