This weekend’s Las Vegas Formula 1 Grand Prix is struggling to fill the stands according to reports, with some 10,000 unsold grandstand seats.
According to the Daily Mail, Oversteer48.com found 10,000 unsold grandstand seats near the recently opened Sphere venue, in the circuit’s East Harmon Zone, after analysing Ticketmaster data.
A Formula 1 spokesperson told MailSport that organisers are expecting to sell out the event, and are planning for roughly 100,000 people to attend each of the three days.
The price of tickets for the Las Vegas Grand Prix has been a regular talking point since the race was added to the schedule for this year.
Earlier this month, MGM Resorts revealed its high-end packages for the race, with prices as high as $11,247 (£9,000/€10,000).
In June, organisers released hospitality options including Heineken House, Club SI and Club Paris. Heineken House was priced at $8,000, while Sports Illustrated’s Club SI cost $7,000. Club Paris was slightly cheaper at $5,500.
It will be the first time since the 1982 Caesars Palace Grand Prix that Formula 1 will race in Las Vegas.
