Regarding the 31 thousand tickets (almost sold out), about eight thousand were purchased by people who do not live in Sao Paulo. According to Luiz Sales, director of SPTuris, the debut of the Brazilian driver Rubens Barrichello, who just quit his career in Formula 1, helped to sell more tickets this year. It was much faster than the two previous editions.
