Ticket information

Race tickets overview

Spectators will enjoy close, competitive racing played out on three distinct sections of the 5.6km race track.  These include high speed areas ending in tight overtaking turns, a street section and a marina section, all of which combine to deliver an unrivalled Formula 1™ viewing experience.  Approximately 50,000 spectators can view the action on the circuit from the comfort of permanent, covered grandstands and VIP facilities.  Yas Marina Circuit is the only motor sports venue in the world where all of the grandstands are covered.  You can choose either Main or South Grandstand tickets.  Both grandstands feature giant video screens and fence free uninterrupted views of the circuit.

These two grandstands are simply the best of the grandstands, the views are awesome.  That’s why we don’t offer other grandstands.

Pit lane tour included

Included within the price of your MotoExpress package is the opportunity to access the Pit lane, team garages and meet the drivers.  This fantastic tour takes place on Thursday afternoon.

Ticket types

Main Grandstand

Get close to the cars and drivers and watch the build up to the race, pits stops and podium celebrations.  No other grandstand in the world of motorsport gets you so close to the cars and drivers.

South Grandstand Upper Highly Recommended

Huge panoramic view of the circuit, Marina, Yachts, Yas Hotel and the best overtaking spot on the circuit.  The south area of the circuit has previously enjoyed the best pre-race entertainment shows.  The grandstand is only a short 10 minute walk to the Yas Island Marina with its luxury yachts and stylish bars and restaurants.


Package highlights

Pit lane Walkabout

We have arranged coach transfers to take guests into the circuit on Thursday afternoon for a Pit Lane Walkabout and driver autograph sessions.  Guests should make sure that they arrive at the hotel before midday to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.

Grandstand Tickets

Tickets valid for the entire race weekend.  The Abu Dhabi grandstand tickets are the equivalent of VIP tickets at any other circuit.  We offer a choice of tickets.  However we recommend guests choose either the Main Grandstand which offers incredible views into the team garages, pit lane, start / finish and podium.  Plus you get to see the build up to the race - OR - South Grandstand tickets which offer the most incredible panorama over the Marina and Yas hotel.  Plus the benefit of being in front of the main overtaking area.  We have circuit transfers on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

Ferrari World

Ferrari World is an integral part of the Yas Marina circuit.  On Thursday, Saturday and Sunday guests will have time to visit this incredible motorsport theme park prior to the start of the qualifying or the race day action.  Note that Ferrari World tickets are not included in the event price but can be purchased on the day.

Lavish welcome party with sensational food and drinks included

Ladies put on your posh frocks!  Being that it is Friday and we are in Dubai it’s only right that our party takes the form of that famous Dubai institution, the Friday Brunch.  It’s an opportunity to meet your fellow F1 guests at our welcome reception party.  Enjoy complementary cocktails, fine wines and beers throughout the period of the brunch.  Dine in a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere, whilst enjoying views of Dubai Marina from our private terrace.

The cuisine is stupendous; roasts, steaks and the seafood station includes lobster to die for!  It’s foods from all corners of the earth, It’s unbelievably outstandingly fantastic.  It’s worth a fortune and it’s included in your MotoExpress package

Circuit Concerts

After the racing has finished it’s party time as the circuit puts on a fantastic free concert.  Previous acts have included Lionel Richie, The Who, Paul McCartney, Beyoncé, Prince and Aerosmith.

What you’ve said

Had a great week in Dubai, wonderful hotel and superb racing action. Low stress due to the organising you did, thanks. I am sure we will back in 2013 for at least one event!

Graham Mountford, UK

I had such a good time in Dubai with your tour group I had to write and say thank you for the pleasure and the excellent company I met. The hotel was a very good choice as was my own decision to come a little early and be a tourist in the UAE.

I neglected the opportunity to say goodbye to everyone but I hope a message can get through to all in this way and it would be very nice to see some of them again at a race. The balance of being well organised and yet not too regimented was nicely done and made for a relaxed visit to the track as well as to Dubai and Abu Dhabi, so well done.

David Mingay from Sydney, Australia

I've just finished unpacking, back in Kabul, and wanted to write and thank you for the brilliant time that Sam and I had in the UAE.

Your arrangements were superb - everything went so well. We loved the hotel and thought that the organisation for the Grand Prix couldn't have been bettered.

This is the first time that I have booked a GP visit with MotoExpress - and I have to tell you that I was truly impressed.

Most people would be in awe of Dubai, and the Dubai Marina area in particular. Coming back to the poverty, maladministration and mayhem of Kabul this afternoon certainly is a total contrast and when you talk of the glamour of the venue, I can appreciate what you mean more than most!


Simply GREAT time! As you say simply the Best GP Fantastic photos too!

Thanks for all your arrangements which worked superbly! Here’s to next time!

Ps….hope Prince was good and that you got back. We heard that he was still going at midnight!!

Mark + Jason

Just wanted to say thanks for a lovely weekend, the whole experience was perfect, hopefully see you again next year.

Jill Barthrope

A big thank you for all your efforts and attention at the GP. The upgrade at Gros Ho Ho to a suite and balcony overlooking the marina and sea made it a real treat! We hope you are having a well deserved holiday in Australia.

Look forward to seeing you at Spa next year.

Maureen and Peter Shaw
