Abu Dhabi, 1 February 2011 – Yas Marina Circuit is offering two lucky fans the chance to win a trip to Australia in the V8 Golden Tickets competition to celebrate the arrival of the V8 Supercars Championship at the Real Action Heroes weekend in Abu Dhabi on 11 and 12 February.
Winners will receive two VIP tickets to the Gold Coast 600 race at Surfers Paradise in October 2011 or the Sydney 500 in December in Australia. Both prizes include return flights with Etihad from Abu Dhabi, five nights’ accommodation, two tickets to the V8 Supercars Paddock Club, a garage tour, pre-race grid walk and tickets to the driver’s lunch or breakfast.
The winning tickets will be drawn at a special event on the rooftop of the Yas Marina Circuit media centre on the Friday and Saturday of the Real Action Heroes event. Entry to the draw is through the official Yas Marina Circuit Facebook fan page (www.facebook.com/yasmarinacircuit) and the competition runs from 2 to 10 February.
“We always like to recognise and reward our fans, who are the lifeblood of motorsport,” said Peter Rae, Communications Director, Yas Marina Circuit. “Our first Golden Tickets competition for last November’s Formula 1 Grand Prix was a great success and now we are delighted to launch a similar competition for Australian V8 fans. The V8 Supercar Championships offer some of the most exciting racing around, and our competition will give two lucky fans from the UAE the chance to see these cars compete not only here at Yas but also on their home ground in Australia.”
The V8 Golden Ticket winners will also be invited as VIP guests to the Formula Drift event (25 February), Drag Racing Festival (4-5 March), and the GT1 World Championship (25-26 March) at Yas Marina Circuit. The Australian races take place at Surfers Paradise from 21-23 October and Sydney from 2-4 December 2011.
