The ‘GP Parks Pass’ is a three-day package and will only be available for purchase until May 31 from all ticket outlets.

The 2017 Formula 1 season is back, and the introduction of new rules governing the design of cars promises one of the most exciting seasons ever. F1 will enter a new era with lower, wider and faster cars making this season possibly the fastest ever and most spectacular for fans to watch. In addition, the leadership of the sport’s new owners Liberty Media will witness a new era of excitement and engagement with F1 fans around the world.

With all this excitement around 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.

All ticket categories for 2017 have been maintained at 2016 prices on established favourites such as Abu Dhabi Hill and the array of five Grandstand options, and 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.

Following Sunday’s thrilling F1 season opener in Melbourne that saw Sebastian Vettel take his first chequered flag since Singapore 2015 and the first win for Ferrari in Australia in 10 years, with Lewis Hamilton finishing second after his pole position start, Yas Marina Circuit has announced that tickets are now on sale and revealed big savings for fans who buy their tickets early.

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 1 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.

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. —[email protected]
