Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Tuesday, 7 April 2009

Ticketing for the 2009 Formula 1 SingTel Singapore Grand Prix are to be released in two installments, each starting with an early bird release, both of which offer significant savings over regular ticket prices.

All grandstand tickets, except for those of the Bay Grandstand, will be released for sale through selected channels during part one of the ticketing launch on April 9th 2009.

 This will be followed by part two on April 20th 2009, where the Bay Grandstand and three-day Walkabout tickets will also be released for sale island-wide.

In all, a total of 72,000 tickets will be released. This represents an increase of 2,000 tickets when compared to the previous years initial release.

The early bird release will distribute up to 50% of the available inventory for grandstand and walkabout passes. Once the early bird allotment in each area is taken up, the balance in the respective category will be offered at regular 2009 rates.

We are fully aware of the need to reflect the realities of the current economic situation. Our objective has always been to make the race as accessible as possible. Singapore GP remains committed to this and therefore we will continue to offer various pricing points. For 2009, we have introduced our lowest prices ever and held or bettered 2008 ticket prices, said Mr. Teo Hock Seng, Chairman of race promoter Singapore GP Pte Ltd (SGP).

During the first early bird release, fans will have the opportunity to purchase tickets for Turn 1, Turn 2, Stamford and Pit Grandstands with savings ranging 7% to 14% when compared with last year. These prices also represent, on average, a 15% discount on regular 2009 prices.

Tickets for the three-day Walkabout, Padang, Connaught and Esplanade Waterfront Grandstands have been held at the same price as last year during the early bird release of the first installment, offering savings of 12% to 29% over regular 2009 prices.

This year, the Bay Grandstand will hold only one price category, instead of different pricing points for the upper and lower seats as applied in 2008.

The configurations of the Marina, Raffles and Turn 3 Grandstands are being studied so as to maximise viewing opportunities following the recently announced changes which include revisions to the Pit Lane Exit and Turn 14.

Currently, only three-day season passes are available for grandstands. However, SGP does not rule out the possibility of releasing single day grandstand tickets closer to the race weekend, pending the take-up of season passes.

Tickets released in part one of the launch will be available for sale from April 9th 2009 using two channels: online ticketing (http://tickets.singaporegp.sg) as well as the SGP ticketing hotline: +65 6738 6738.
