Salam Baku – Hello Baku!
In recent years, Baku is famous for international sport events that are organized here. Therefore, the city has become one of the hottest destination in Europe during those events. One of those prominent events is Formula 1, which was held in Baku for 2 years and is going to be held in 2018 as well. Thus, if you love adrenaline and racing, then Baku is inviting you to watch F1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix 2018 and feel the speed. Apart from the race, you can enjoy so many activities during the event such as autograph session, pit lane walk, entertaining activities inside the city circuit and great concert shows every night after the race.
Let’s have a look at the program of 2018!
An interesting fact about Azerbaijan Grand Prix is that the city itself is used as a track. In other words, The Grand Prix (called Baku city circuit in Azerbaijan) encircles the central streets of Baku. Hence, the city starts to change its look and become a racetrack approximately one or two months before the actual race day. Baku becomes not only a racetrack, but also an entertaining place that allows tourists to enjoy different shows and facilities.
Well, in 2018 the race days cover the dates from 26th of April to 29th of April. The F1 journey of four days starts with practice sessions, where you can see the pilots from the competing teams, take a lot of selfies and cool photos on the track and enjoy the show. The second day is considered as free time for teams and you will have the chance to discover Baku. The third day is the qualification day and you will be able to watch amazing part of the race. Moreover, the last day – 29th of April is the actual race day, which promises a spectacular and super cool race with full of adrenalin. In addition, I would like to mention that Azerbaijan Grand Prix 2017 was considered as the most interesting race of the year.
Besides an amazing race, you will have a chance to meet popular world stars such as Dua Lipa, Christina Aguilera, Martin Solveig, Jamiroquai, Afrojack during race days. Each star will be on stage on various days of the race. Wonderful concert shows will make your evening and F1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix unforgettable.
