The demand for Formula 1 Grand Prix tickets in Las Vegas is high, with only 20-30 thousand fans expected to actually have tickets, and hotel prices reaching up to $1,000 per night during the race weekend.
‣ Huge demand for admission tickets
‣ Only 20-30 thousand fans expected to have tickets for the Grandstands
‣ Fewer expected to attend than the Monaco Grand Prix
‣ Tickets for the event are being sold on resale sites for half the original price
Online ticket sales for the Las Vegas Formula 1 event were in huge demand and fans faced long waiting times but ultimately missed out. There has always been secrecy surrounding the number of grandstand seats available, until recently. According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, an estimated 105,000 people are expected in the city for the events. However, only a fraction of people will be sitting in the grandstands. The newspaper reports that 20-30 thousand fans hold tickets to the grandstands. This means that the expected crowds at the 6.1-kilometre circuit will be less than that of the Monaco Grand Prix, which is the least attended F1 race of the season. The Journal’s numbers do not include fans watching the race from special hotels or VIP boxes and resale sites have seen ticket prices cut in half for the Grand Prix event. Hotel prices in Las Vegas, during the race weekend, are peaking to $1,000 a night.
