Tickets for the 2014 Shell and Pennzoil Grand Prix of Houston presented by the Greater Houston Honda Dealers, taking place Friday through Sunday, June 27th through 29th at Reliant Park, go on sale March 15th.
The IndyCar Series event will once again be a “doubleheader,” with two points-paying races, one each on Saturday and Sunday. In addition to IndyCar, the Grand Prix will feature a full schedule of support races including The Mazda MX-5 Cup and Pro Mazda Championship; these events will be announced at a later date.
“The Grand Prix made a successful return to Houston last year, and we are looking forward to continuing the tradition in 2014,” said Chuck Kosich, general manager of the Grand Prix. “It’s equally exciting to have title sponsor Shell Oil Company and presenting sponsor the Greater Houston Honda Dealers both return to make the event possible.”
Ticket prices start at $10, with reserved grandstand seats starting at $45; three-day Premium Reserved tickets are $135. Individual pit passes start at $10 and are only available to fans 18 and older.
The Grand Prix will also offer a wide variety of activities including live music, race team paddocks open to all fans, exhibits and interactive games. Grand Prix sponsor Ace Hardware will provide cooling zones throughout the venue featuring refreshing misters and shade. Fans will also be permitted to bring one 20 oz. bottle of water per person into the event. Reliant Arena will be open for more indoor fan activities including interactive games, expos, an exotic car show and the Family Fun Zone.
“The Grand Prix is the most family-friendly major sporting event in Houston. Kids 12 and under are free all weekend and adult ticket prices start at just $10,” said Austin Crossley, managing director of the Grand Prix. “With the kids out of school for the summer, we are offering an affordable option for families.”
Tickets will be available through Ticketmaster outlets, online at www.grandprixofhouston.com, by phone at 1-800-745-3000, or in person at the Reliant Stadium South ticket windows inside Budweiser Plaza.
