On Sale: 2012 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Tickets

Yas Viceroy Hotel, Formula 1 racetrack in Abu Dhabi

The big event may not take place until November 2-4, 2012, but there’s already a lot of excitement about the Formula One Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Tickets are now on sale, and a sell-out crowd (over 50,000 spectators) is expected at the event, now in its fourth year. The Yas Marina circuit and Etihad Airways, the national airline of the U.A.E., have created a number of all-inclusive flight, hotel and race weekend packages for avid motorsports fans. Not that the event is limited to Formula 1 addicts. There will be high-profile concerts aplenty (past acts have included Paul McCartney, Beyoncé, Kings of Leon, Aerosmith, Britney Spears and Linkin Park). For more information or to book tickets, visit www.yasmarinacircuit.ae.
