In recent weeks, the promoter of the Turkish Grand Prix of Formula 1 He confessed that he wants to have more than 100,000 people in his stands. It is for this reason that in recent days they had put on sale “the cheapest F1 ticket in the world.” The race will take place on November 15 and will be at Istanbul Park.
Vural AkCEO of the company that owns the circuit, announced the number of tickets sold so far in marketing. The businessman showed that the number of entries so far was 40,000, something impressive for a country that is not so well known for its love of cars.
The Turkish property has capacity for more than 200,000 people. This is why the government of that country allowed only 50% of the stands to be enabled and that each fan is with the corresponding distance to avoid contagion. The last winner in Turkey was Sebastian Vettel, with Red Bull.
“We could sell the 220,000 tickets, but that will not be possible due to COVID-19. That is why we hope to have more or less 100,000 people. We are prepared for anything, if the disease worsens then maybe the race will be without spectators. We will always comply with the rules of social distancing, “Vural Ak told a press conference.
At the time, from the organization, they had advanced that: «In Formula 1 it normally has certain standards and ticket prices are at a certain level. However, we are not looking to profit financially from this and the government has encouraged us. Ticket prices are 3 Euros per day ».
