Tremendous demand for tickets for this year's Honda Indy 300 has encouraged the earliest "on sale" date in the Queensland event's 11-year history.

Tickets for this year's Honda Indy 300 will go on sale across the country from 9am Monday through Ticketek and one lucky fan and a friend will have the chance to get closer to the action than most at the October 25-28 event.

Any adult fan who buys a four-day ticket before September 30 will go into the draw to watch the race with a friend from the pit bay of one of the leading Champ Car teams.

Honda Indy 300 Chief Executive Officer, Mr Geoff Jones, says that the phone has been "ringing off the hook" with people wanting ticketing details for this year's race, which will again be the penultimate round of the FedEx Championship Series.

"We have never experienced this much interest in the race this far out and so we have decided to go on sale to take advantage of that," said Mr Jones.

"People have their favourite vantage spots all around the track and they want to ensure they get their reserved seats as soon as possible.

"The opportunity to become part of a Champ Car team on race day is an extra bonus which we are hoping will encourage fans to get in early."

This year's event is set become another record-breaking spectacular which will provide a week of entertainment on and off the track on the spectacular Gold Coast.

"The Honda Indy 300 grows bigger and better every year and I am sure this year's event will again provide the world's most spectacular race and biggest party," said Jones.

"We have been flooded with ideas for our off-track event program by tourism bodies, community groups, major hotel, business groups and local promoters.

"Our on-track schedule is also shaping as one of the most entertaining in world motorsports, not only including the Champ Cars, but Australia's own V8 Supercars.

"More than ever, I think we are going to be in a position to provide something for everyone."

Tickets start at just $25.30 (inc GST) for a Thursday general admission ticket, while a four-day flexi ticket will cost $133.10 (inc GST) and will allow access to 12 unreserved grandstands round the circuit.

All your Honda Indy 300 tickets can be purchased through Ticketek on 1-300 303 103.
