Tickets for the 2017 Formula 1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix were bought in 57 countries, Commercial Director of Baku City Circuit (BCC) Bulent Ozerdim said in Baku on May 30.

Ozerdim noted that the number of countries, citizens of which bought tickets, increased as compared to 2016 and this is very encouraging.

“Tickets for some grandstands are sold out, and there are very few unsold tickets for a number of others,” he added.

Baku, located on the western edge of the Caspian Sea will for the second time host the famous race on June 23-25.

The fabulous summer atmosphere in Baku will provide the perfect backdrop for the event that will allow spectators to enjoy a truly unique live sporting experience.

Overall 18,000 spectators are expected to watch from the grandstands, and a minimum of 10,000 spectators will enjoy the race from the standing areas.

Unlike 2016, this year Azerbaijan joins the race with a different name, as Formula 1 Grand Prix in Baku was renamed to the Grand Prix of Azerbaijan.

A variety of ticket options are on offer for the 2017 Formula 1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix, while the 4-day tickets include grandstand access to not only the three days of racing as well as all accompanying entertainment offerings but also to a special Pit Lane Walk on June 22.

Earlier, the organizers said that the majority of tickets are bought from Russia, Great Britain, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Arab countries.
