Three-day tickets for the 2018 Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg go on sale tomorrow (November 15) at 10 a.m. EST at gpstpete.com or by phone at 877-725-8849. The 14th edition of this annual racing festival returns to the downtown streets and picturesque waterfront of St. Petersburg, Fla., March 9-11. Renewal customers have until 9 p.m. EST tonight (November 14) to renew their same three-day grandstand seats as last year.
All three-day ticket options will go on sale to the public which include Reserved Grandstand, General Admission, and Paddock and Pit Access. Pricing remains unchanged for the 2018 event for all tickets.
"Is it March yet? The countdown is now officially on for the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg with the launch of public sales," said Kim Green, co-owner, chairman and chief executive officer of Green Savoree Racing Promotions, organizer of the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. "We're excited to offer the Champions Club again for the second year. Fans buying weekend grandstand tickets get the first chance at premium access and unique experiences that you can't typically buy, through the Champions Club upgrade."
The Champions Club is available at a special price of $50 with the purchase of a three-day grandstand ticket option through December 1, 9 p.m. EST. It offers exclusive benefits and event access, including a souvenir credential with lanyard, complimentary Firestone IndyCar Paddock passes, access to the pre-race grid walk, discounts on official event merchandise, an opportunity to win a two-seater Indy car ride on the track, and many other experiences. Additional discounts and surprise benefits will be revealed leading up to the event.
The Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, an annual spring break tradition in the Tampa Bay area, will again serve as the opening race for the Verizon IndyCar Series season for an eighth consecutive year. Both the drivers and fans will have an increased level of anticipation for the start of the 2018 season. The temporary St. Petersburg circuit will debut the new, sleeker Indy car aerodynamic body kits into competition. Reminiscent of and inspired by the popular open-wheel cars from the early 1990s, it is a more aggressive-looking Indy car designed to be bolder, safer and even more thrilling to watch.
Three-day tickets to the event start at $55 for General Admission and $105 for Reserved Grandstand (tax included). Junior pricing is available for those fans age 12 and under. For full pricing information and to buy tickets, visit gpstpete.com or call 877-725-8849.
