UAE residents and citizens can get an early bird discount of 20 per cent.

ABU DHABI // Motorsport fans in the UAE are being offered a 20 per cent "early bird" discount on tickets for this year's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The discounted tickets cost Dh1,500 for two days and Dh1,665 for three days, with the usual prices being Dh1,875 for two days and Dh2,080 for three days.

The discount is not applicable for upgraded tickets and some VIP packages, which can cost as much as Dh16,900 per person.

The race weekend is expected to have an expanded programme of activities and post-race events.

Events are scheduled to begin on November 2 and culminate with the race itself on Sunday, November 4.

The Abu Dhabi GP will be the third-last event on this year's Formula One calendar, followed later in November by races in the United States and Brazil.

F1 ticket holders in Abu Dhabi will be able to enjoy a wide entertainment programme in the Oasis areas behind the grandstands, in addition to the Yasalam after-race concerts, which in previous years featured acts such Sir Paul McCartney, Beyoncé, Kings of Leon, Aerosmith, Britney Spears and Linkin Park.

Tickets are available at Etihad Airways shops, Virgin Megastores, Yas Hotel and Yas Marina Circuit, by calling 800 927 or at yasmarinacircuit.ae.
