    Still need tickets to the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach? Here’s how much they cost
    • April 6, 2023

    Attending the 2023 Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach doesn’t require breaking the bank — but you could if you so choose.

    The Grand Prix has myriad ticket packages for the more than 180,000 people expected to attend the event, which will run from Friday to Sunday, April 14-16. You can be thrifty — or extravagant.

    If you like standing on the side of the track or sitting on metal bleachers, there are packages for you.

    If you want to hang in the paddock, you can — for a price. For those flush with cash, you can even attend exclusive clubs — for an even steeper price.

    All told, tickets to the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach can run anywhere from $38 to $1,125, depending on which day or days you attend, as well as which package you choose. (You can also attend Friday for free if you pick up the Sunday, April 9, or Friday, April 14, print editions of a Southern California newspaper and look for a general admission ticket.)

    Below is a breakdown of available ticket packages and their cost. To buy tickets, go to

    General admission

    General admission tickets come with unreserved seating on the first two days of the Grand Prix, but not during the Sunday finale. Tickets:

    Friday: $38.
    Saturday: $77.
    Sunday: $82.
    Three-day package: $112.

    Reserved seating

    The Sunday tickets for this package vary based on where your seats are, though children 12 and under get a discounted price. Tickets:

    Saturday: $84 for adults.
    Sunday: $92 or $107 for adults, and $67 or $81 for juniors, depending on the seats.
    Three-day package (no reserved seating on Friday): $124 or $175, and $95 or $135 for juniors, depending on the seats.

    Paddock access

    These packages provide access to the NTT IndyCar Series paddock. But they do not provide admission to the circuit, so you have to buy those tickets as well. Tickets:

    Friday, Saturday or Sunday: $30.
    Three-day package: $70.

    Super Photo Ticket

    This is the package for you if you want to take great photos of the racing.

    The Super Photo Ticket includes three-day admission, paddock access, access to three special photo locations and limited access to the racing pit during practice and qualifying.

    Minors aren’t not allowed, however, and there are other conditions. For more information, go to

    This package costs $340.

    Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. One Turn Club

    With this Sunday-only package, you can hang out at the iconic restaurant during the races. Bubba Gump Shrimp, 87 Aquarium Way, has views of multiple turns, and will also have television screens broadcasting the action. The package also comes with free buffet breakfast and brunch.

    This package costs $260 for adults and $165 for juniors.

    Club C300

    This club is hosted by the Committee of 300, a nonprofit that has worked to benefit the community for more than four decades.

    The club has a live television feed of the circuit, a dance floor, free breakfast and lunch, and other amenities.

    This package, like the Bubba Gump Shrimp one, is an add-on, so you must first buy a reserved ticket. Tickets:

    Saturday: $192.
    Sunday: $220.
    Three-day: $390.

    Hospitality clubs

    OK, here’s where we start talking about some serious dollar signs.

    There are three clubs from which to choose — Vista, Seaside and Pit Lane.

    Here’s how to get free tickets to Day 1 of the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach

    The Vista Club is on the 17th floor of the Hyatt Regency Hotel and offers a view of the pits, the oceanfront straightaway, and turns 1 to 6, as well as the harbor and Long Beach skyline.

    The Seaside Club is on the Seaside Way back straight and is usually the first to sell out, according to the Grand Prix Association of Long Beach website.

    The Pit Lane Club is the most-exclusive, putting you right above the pit and the straightaway. It also comes with limited pit access.

    While the complimentary meals vary at each club, all three offer a full bar with complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks on Saturday and Sunday.

    But you can’t buy these tickets the way you do the others. Instead, you must fill out an order form, which is available at Tickets:

    Vista Club: $400 for Friday or Saturday only; $460 for Sunday only and $760 for all three days.
    Seaside Club (all three days): $760.
    Pit Lane Club (all three days): $1,125.
