Promoter Grand Prix of Russia talks about whether Sochi Autodrom and the city of Sochi is expected at the may holidays to the full house.- To evaluate the effect of the transfer of the weekend Formula 1 from October to may, we can only at the end of the Grand Prix - said Sergey Vorobyev. - Are we going to do this, including, and on the basis of feedback from the audience. However, preliminary data suggest that the results of the experiment, which was made possible by the Administration of Krasnodar region and Bernie Ecclestone is interested in may's date of the Russian Grand Prix, excellent. At the moment the pace of ticket sales is better than in the same period for the Grand Prix 2015.For those who came to Sochi in previous years, one of the main difficulties was the price of the tickets. In 2016 the situation is much better. First, in connection with may holidays in Sochi in Russia is much larger than the base of the flights, plus, the airlines finally realized, what effect does the Grand Prix of Russia for the flow of passengers flying into the resort town, and put on their flights the planes have more capacity. In connection with these two circumstances is now still available tickets at affordable prices. Something has changed in the habit of Russians to make a decision about the trip at the last moment- Current Grand Prix - the third, has already formed a large group of fans who regularly visits the home race of Formula 1, but even among the most loyal fans the tendency to care about tickets in advance is formed more slowly than we would like.Our database of our regular customers there are groups of people from 30-50 people, organized who come from other cities. Even they, knowing that a bus or a half plane will arrive at the Grand Prix 2016, I'm writing - we got together and after a week or two will buy our precious tickets. It seems that the desire to postpone all on then with labor skorenko We are ready for and accept as a given.- And Sochi Autodrom is ready to house- A full house in the stands at the us two years in a row Sure, there will be a third time. But we have a dream - until 2020 to come to take on race day 100 thousand spectators. We are moving towards that goal. Of course, it will be a serious burden on the Olympic Park, all transport infrastructure in Sochi, so we do not make any sudden movements, and gradually increase attendance. Believe in the incarnation of our dreams- The arrival in Sochi of a large number of fans of Formula 1 in combination with may holidays is the peak load for the city as a whole- Sochi, post-Olympics in its current form, is a resort, which, I believe, have to live in the mode of peak load at least 8 months of the year. Infrastructure built for the winter Olympic and Paralympic games in 2014, is in great demand, including through the holding of Grand Prix of Formula 1.In 2014, the arrival in Russia of the "Big prizes" seemed a fantasy, utopian, unrealistic, and someone caused a rejection. Now, I think the skeptics were very few. Sochi Autodrom has become the Central object of the Olympic Park, main venue of the Olympic heritage. Events are held year-round on it and almost non-stop.In General, interest in Sochi is constantly increasing. We see a marked increase in the booking of the tickets from abroad. For the city is only a beginning, and therefore, the more guests will be at the Grand Prix, the more people will come to Sochi again. Because every guest is at least 5-10 people that will hear the enthusiastic story about how cool it was in Sochi. We believe in it and are not afraid to invite more fans. Support us in this and administration of Krasnodar region and the city of Sochi.We work together to ensure that the Olympic legacy was just the way it was conceived back in the mid 2000-ies, when decisions were made regarding the application of Sochi to host the winter Olympic and Paralympic games in 2014.
