Indian F1 Grand Prix tickets still up for grabs

New Delhi: If you are trying to get your hands on a Formula 1 ticket, the good news is that 20 per cent tickets are still waiting to be sold. What's more, a lukewarm demand may have prompted the organisers to change their selling strategy. Instead of full season they have now given an option of only final race day tickets which has bringing down prices by almost 60 per cent.

The much awaited Indian Formula 1 race starts on Friday at this new state-of-the-art Buddh International circuit, but only about 80 per cent of all tickets have been sold. Official ticket partner 'bookmyshow.com' is hopeful of selling out the remaining tickets.

Founder & CEO, 'Bookmyshow.com' Ashish Hemrajani said that by the last day rush will be more.

Unlike normal tickets, which are valid for three days, the special offer tickets are valid only for the final day. Instead of shelling out Rs 35,000 for a three-day combined grandstand ticket, you can watch the main race on the final day for Rs 15,000. Classic stand tickets are now being offered for Rs 4,000 instead of Rs 6,500 and picnic stand tickets for Rs 3,000 against the actual price of Rs 6,000 for the final day race.

About 80,000 tickets have been sold out so it's a good time to grab yours as organisers have slashed prices in an effort to fill the 120,000-capacity circuit.
