Tremendous demand for tickets to the Lexmark Indy 300 on the Gold Coast has organisers confident of surpassing 300,000 spectators at the October 23 to 26 event in 2003.

Tickets for this year's Lexmark Indy 300 are now on sale through Ticketek representing great value for a massive four days of entertainment for the whole family.

The 13th annual Lexmark Indy 300 will feature a round of the Bridgestone Presents the Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford and V8 Supercar Championship Series, in addition to a packed on and off track entertainment program.

Queensland's premier Event in the tourism mecca of the Gold Coast has developed into an Australian social and sporting icon and grown into one of the world's leading motor sport spectacles.

Lexmark Indy 300 General Manager James Ashworth said early indicators pointed towards a record crowd in excess of 300,000 over the four days.

"The Event has grown every year since 1995 and attendance would have reached 300,000 last year if the weather was kinder," said Ashworth.

"When the Lexmark Indy 300 surpasses 300,000, it will have doubled the attendance from the inaugural year in 1991, again highlighting the Event's growth.

"The phone has been 'ringing off the hook' from people wanting ticketing details for this year.

"The interest for this time of year has been great and the past few years shows the success of an early ticket sale date.

"We are finding that many of the people chasing ticket information attended for the first time last year, had such a great time, they want to get in early to ensure a good seat at their favourite vantage point."

Prices start at just $28.00 (incl GST) for a Thursday General Admission ticket, while a four-day flexi ticket will cost $142.00 (incl GST) and will allow access to 12 unreserved grandstands around the circuit.

Tickets for the Lexmark Indy 300 can be purchased through Ticketek on phone 1300 303 103.
