2010 Canadian Grand Prix Packs Sold-Out Circuit Gilles Villeneuve
Montreal, June 10, 2010 - Octane Racing Group, promoter of the Canadian Grand Prix, is happy to announce that this weekend's event will held in front of a sold-out crowd. At 3 p.m. today (Thursday), the box office closed operations for the most important sporting event in Canada. On Friday June 11, tickets for the 2011 Canadian Grand Prix will go on sale at the Grand Prix box office. In other good news, fans will not only be offered a great selection of available seats by ordering immediately, but tickets will be obtainable at the same 2010 price, which were the same as 2008. Organizers of the Grand Prix are extending this special offer to their customers until July 31 inclusively. Afterward, ticket prices will be adjusted.
"We are of course very pleased with the public response," said Francois Dumontier, President of the Canadian Grand Prix and of Octane Racing Group and promoter of the event. "Local fans, obviously proud of their Grand Prix, were quick to respond when we announced ticket sales last December, and we soon realized that they were not going to stay away from something they appreciate. Then, over the course of the following months, we received huge fan response from abroad, which pleasantly surprised us. Our ticket sales in Europe were exceptional, and this is a testimony to the appeal of our event in traditional Formula 1 markets. There are thousands of connoisseurs who have for years watched the Canadian Grand Prix broadcast from Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, and were now ready to cross the ocean to witness a Formula 1 Grand Prix, Montreal style. We are going to welcome them, as we do with all other fans, with warmth and enthusiasm. And I invite Montrealers to do the same."
Starting tomorrow, Friday June 11, race fans will be able to purchase tickets for the 2011 Canadian Grand Prix at either the Grand Prix box office located next to Metro Station Jean-Drapeau on Ile Sainte-Helène, by calling 514 350-0000 or by going online to www.circuitgillesvilleneuve.ca. Fans who purchase their tickets before July 31, 2010 can save between $10 to $45 on grandstands tickets and $5 on general admission.
