Yas Marina Circuit will attract its largest ever crowd for this weekend's race
This weekend’s Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand
Prix will record its highest ever attendance, with all 60,000 tickets sold out,
it was announced on Wednesday.
This year’s daily allocation is an increase on last
year, which attracted 55,000 F1 fans.
The nail-biting conclusion to the F1 season will
see Mercedes’ drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg battle it out for
Rosberg’s recent victory at the Brazilian Grand
Prix brought him within 17 points of championship leader Hamilton, setting up
an exciting showdown at Yas Marina Circuit this Sunday, November 23.
“With all the tickets now sold out, we can
officially say that the 2014 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is
going to be bigger than ever before,” said Al Tareq Al Ameri, CEO of Yas Marina
“The demand has been unprecedented, locally and
internationally, and the atmosphere in the stands is going to be fantastic. The
F1 championship has come down to the wire, and people can’t wait to see the
champion crowned right here in Abu Dhabi.”
I am confused by the numbers, Montreal a Modest City by world standards here in Canada host a Grand Prix F 1 race each Summer with attendance over 300,000 thousand paid attendance, so am I misreading unprecedented international ? Just sayin eh.
