2018 Formula 1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix On Sale From November 6th

Launch of early bird ticket offers – with 20% discounts for F1 fans – announced today

Baku City Circuit logoBaku City Circuit (BCC) today announced that tickets for the 2018 Formula 1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix will be available to purchase online via www.bakucitycircuit.com from November 6th 2017.

The third successive Formula 1 race to be staged on the streets of Azerbaijan’s capital city is taking place on the weekend of April 27th – 29th 2018, the first time the race will be staged in Baku at this time of year.

Furthermore, BCC is offering fans a limited supply of special ‘early bird’ discounts of 20% on the cost of all 4-day tickets. This exciting offer will be available until December 31st 2017, after which the cost of tickets will revert back to their original price. BCC is encouraging people to act fast and book their tickets for the 2018 Formula 1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix as soon as possible while this offer is available.

A 4-day ticket includes grandstand access to not only the three days of racing as well as all accompanying entertainment offerings but also to a special Public Pit Lane Walk on Thursday 26th April. This unique experience was hugely popular last year and saw thousands of fans enter the sport’s inner sanctum where they witnessed the teams’ engineers and mechanics applying the finishing touches to the cars in their respective garages ahead of what turned out to be one of the most dramatic F1 races in recent memory.

The 2017 F1 race weekend in Baku was widely recognised as the most exciting and unpredictable race of the season so far, with the two title contenders, Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel, literally clashing on track in one of the most memorable incidents in the sport’s history. Ultimately, the race ended with Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo unexpectedly securing the win ahead of Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas and the youngest rookie to ever secure a spot on the podium, Williams’ 18-year-old Lance Stroll. It was truly an unforgettable race set against the backdrop of Azerbaijan’s stunning capital on one the most challenging circuits on the F1 calendar.

BCC’s Executive Director, Arif Rahimov, welcomed today’s announcement and urged fans to make sure they don’t lose out on this discount opportunity: “We are delighted to announce the launch of our ticket sales for the third Formula 1 race weekend in Baku this coming April. It is always important to us to offer fans something special ahead of the return of F1 to Azerbaijan and we believe that our early bird discount offering will once again act as a strong incentive for people from both home and abroad to book their weekend tickets as early as possible. Last year’s race was truly spectacular, producing a battle for the ages when our beautiful circuit finally came into its own. With this year’s race scheduled to take place in April –  which can offer unpredictable weather conditions here in Baku –  we are expecting the unexpected when F1 arrives back in town! We are excited to showcase our beautiful city and race track to the world once more and continue to establish this event as one of the unmissable race weekends on the F1 calendar. I would advise fans to act fast and get their tickets while they are still available!”

In addition to the discounted 4-day ticket offering, special ‘Junior’ tickets for children aged 2-15 will also be made available to families travelling to the event together.

Daily Roaming Tickets will also be on offer to those preferring to watch the action from different locations on the track on various standing areas and podiums.

Discounted 4-day adult ticket prices range from AZN160 – AZN560 while the daily Roaming Tickets will range from AZN60 – AZN150 (cost in US$ will be determined by currency rate on day of purchase).

With only 2 months to avail of this special discount offer to witness the world’s greatest race cars once again speed through the streets of this stunning city, the message from Baku City Circuit to the world’s F1 audience is very simple: get your early bird tickets while you still can and join us in Baku in 2018!
