Motorsport fans can now purchase single day tickets for the 2012 Formula 1 Indian Grand Prix. Prices range from Rs. 2,000 to Rs. 12,000 for Race Day, October 28
At this year’s Formula 1 Indian Grand Prix, to be held between October 26 and 28, fans can buy single day tickets along with the usual three-day season tickets.
The single day tickets have been introduced to make F1 races more affordable to motorsport enthusiasts who wish to witness the action live at the venue.
The most affordable ticket now comes for just Rs 2,000 for a single day (Race Day, October 28) for the natural picnic stands while the same ones cost Rs. 3,000 for the three-day season ticket! The most expensive single day ticket (again for the Race Day only) can be bought for Rs. 12,000 for the Main Grandstand while the season ticket is priced at Rs. 21,000. Every ticket carries a parking permit for one vehicle within the premises of the Buddh International Circuit.
For the record, the cheapest ticket at last year’s F1 race was Rs 2,500 while the Main Grandstand carried a whopping Rs 35,000 price tag though organisers had later slashed it to Rs 15,000 for just the Race Day following poor sales.
“We are glad to announce the exciting one day passes for the second edition of the Indian Grand prix. F1 fans can avail these much awaited single day passes to experience the thrill and adrenaline of the race day. With the special prices and much improved facilities of the BIC, we believe that motorsport fans will enjoy the high paced excitement of the sport.” said Sameer Gaur, MD & CEO, Jaypee Sports International Limited.
The single day tickets for Race Day, October 2012, are available on the bookmyshow website and are also on sale at select outlets across key metro cities. Bookmyshow also has details regarding ticket outlets, parking charges, location of stands and information about shuttle services from NCR.
