Tickets for the 2012 Abu Dhabi Formula One Grand Prix will go on sale on Sunday, said organisers who are expecting a 50,000 sell-out crowd.

The race weekend at Yas Marina Circuit takes place on November 2-4 and organisers have promised an expanded programme both on and off the track.

They added that GCC citizens and residents are being offered a 20 percent early bird discount when the tickets become available on Sunday.

"We work very hard to raise the bar every year," said Richard Cregan, CEO, Yas Marina Circuit.

"For 2012, we are offering new ticketing and entertainment options that allow spectators to customize their weekend experience based on their needs and interests."

He said race-goers are being offered a variety of seating and hospitality upgrades available for the first time, allowing them to tailor-make their race weekend experience - including Marina Club and South Club upgrades.

Beyond the on-track action, F1 ticket holders will be able to enjoy a wider entertainment programme in the Oasis areas behind the grandstands, while the Yasalam after-race concerts will again deliver world class acts, organisers added.

Previous Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekends have seen the likes of Sir Paul McCartney, Beyoncé, Kings of Leon, Aerosmith, Britney Spears and Linkin Park perform to crowds in excess of 30,000 per night.

In a first for 2012, the popular Australian V8 Supercars series will be the official F1 support race.

Tickets will be available through selected Etihad Airways shops, Virgin Megastores across the UAE and GCC, the Yas Hotel and Yas Marina Circuit itself.
