Indian GP tickets for Rs 5,000 a pop?
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store.Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
The pricing of the tickets was also revealed to the general public. The tickets will be out soon at a price of Rs. 5,000 to Rs. 30,000 for different locations around the track. There will be 25,000 – 29000 general tickets of the main grandstand for sale.
I doubt the company organizing the race has stuck to its philosophy of ‘making F1 available to masses in India’. While Rs 5000 may not seem much for a F1 ticket, it certainly out of reach for students and college goers who are extremely interested in F1. Probably, they can have a student’s discount 😉
