Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Aditynath on Friday unveiled the tickets sales for the premier two-wheel racing competition to be held at the Buddh International Circuit from September 22 to 24.
As reported by PTI earlier this month, the lowest denomination of tickets are from Rs 800 in order to cater to the mass audience. The Main Grandstand ticket prices range between Rs 20,000 to Rs 30,000, depending on the tier a fan would prefer with a centre stage view.
A more plush and exclusive experience can be had with a ticket in the Platinum Corporate Box which is priced at Rs 40,000.
The Indian promoters of the event, Fairstreet Sports, also honoured the UP CM, who has been instrumental in paving the way for MotoGP's smooth ride to make its maiden entry into the country, with the first ticket of the historic race event.
"MotoGP is the world's biggest, fastest, and oldest bike racing competition. It is a matter of pride and joy that for the first time India will be hosting MotoGP," Adityanath was quoted as saying in a press release.
On behalf of MotoGP, the organisers also gifted the CM a helmet of the renowned Italian rider Enea Bastianini.
"The use of 30 per cent ethanol in the bike used in the competition is commendable. It is helpful in reducing the carbon footprint. Uttar Pradesh is the largest ethanol-producing state in the country. From this point of view, organising this grand event is important," Adityanath said.
MotoGP Bharat will be the biggest motorsport event to take place in India since the Formula 1 Indian Grand Prix.
"It's a moment of great pride and exhilaration for us at FairStreet Sports as we open the ticket sales for India’s premier global motorcycling event MotoGP Bharat.
"This event will catapult India on the world map of motorcycling excellence where the world’s best riders and machines compete for supremacy on the tarmac.
"The race, in more ways than one, is a corroboration of a lot of belief, collective efforts and a latent need for global sports popularity in the ‘New India’ we all are so proud of," said Pushkar Nath Srivastava, Chief Operating Officer of FairStreet Sports.
The tickets went live from Friday on BookMyShow.
