Getting to Istanbul Formula 1 Track

You have to take a flight to the Ataturk International Airport. This is an hour's drive from the Formula I racing track in Istanbul and 30 minutes from the city. You can take a hired car or an airport bus or a taxi to reach the town. During the Grand Prix weekend all the traffic moves towards the circuit, so you should start early to get to the circuit in time. Special buses also ply to Istanbul from Taksim and Levent and from Kadykoy on the Asian side.

You can purchase a gold, silver or bronze grandstand ticket according to your preferred position, view and price. Being a new circuit, grandstand tickets are easily available. However, one advantage of the undulating landscape of the track is that even a general admission ticket will give you a good view. Do not forget to tip the services, as this is a norm in Turkey. Tipping is usually done by rounding off the change.
