Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix a sell-out

Official: Around 50,000 tickets have been told for the inaugural F1 Etihard Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, the final round in the 2009 FIA F1 World Championship.
Yas Marina Circuit, the organisers of the first ever F1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, today announced that the event is sold out.

"We've had an amazing response locally, nationally and internationally and every ticket has been sold," confirmed Richard Cregan, CEO of Yas Marina Circuit.

"This will be an historic race of firsts: the first F1 race at Yas Marina Circuit; the first day into evening F1 race - with only one driver who will forever be recognised in F1 history as the winner of the inaugural Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

"For all the fans attending the event, we aim to give them a truly memorable experience."

Approximately 50,000 spectators will be hosted in grandstands around the 5.5 kilometre F1 track.

Meanwhile organisers claim that the wider Abu Dhabi community can also 'take advantage of one of the most diverse and ambitious city-wide entertainment programmes ever seen by a F1 host city'.

"This free programme ensures that everyone in Abu Dhabi is able to experience the excitement of the race as they watch it live at the city's Corniche beach," added a statement to the press.

This is what frustrates me as a British F1 fan .... we could easily get 120,000 into Silverstone on race day, yet we persist in racing in sterile new venues like this .... I'm sure Abu Dhabi is amazing and will put on a great show, but how many more circuits do we have to visit that get sub 50,000 attendances? Turkey spring to mind again? I can't help thinking that BE in his rush to make money has completely forgotten about the real F1 fans.
