With just 24 hours left to take advantage of early bird specials for the 2014 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix, motorsport fans are being reminded to get in quick or risk missing out on a great value offer.
General Admission tickets for the main race day, Sunday 16 March, are $79 until 1 March 2014 and $99 for the final two weeks leading into the event.
The Australian Grand Prix has never been just about cars tearing around the iconic Albert Park track - it’s a value packed festival of entertainment so all patrons get bang for their buck.
The event has something for all ages, and to make sure families attend year after year, children up to the age of 12 will be admitted free of charge to the General Admission area. And great value does not stop there – ticket buyers who purchase online can print their tickets at home for free, unlike many other major sporting events which charge a minimum of $2.50.
Everyone who walks through the gates in 2014 has the chance to enjoy the very best in Australian music, with a line-up headlined by former Powderfinger front man Bernard Fanning, and supported by Aria-award winning artists Megan Washington, You Am I and the Hoodoo Gurus across the weekend. As part of their ticket they can also witness skateboarding legend Tony Hawk perform his world-beating tricks on a massive vert ramp.
Australian Grand Prix Corporation CEO Andrew Westacott said that in a state which is spoilt for choice with major events its paramount fans get a great return for the price they pay.
“We work in an extremely competitive major events environment in Victoria, so the cost of tickets, food or merchandise needs to be competitively priced. We work very hard to ensure we achieve this.”
“A contentious issue around major events is the cost of food and beverage, with this in mind we have conducted a number of comparison studies to ensure our prices are at or below offerings at other events.”
