If this is your first Singapore GP, worry not. We have the best 6 tips you must do to get the most of the unforgettable night :
Just as with any other big event, it is important to be early and ready. Tickets go on sale online on the Singapore F1 Grand Prix website months prior and there is a discount for early bird special. Once you have secured your access pass, make sure you are also early to the venue. This way you can pick the best vantage point to get all the hot actions.
Singapore gets humid and hot even in the evenings, so it’s best to dress comfortably. Similarly, you want to limit what you bring and downsize your belongings. It is also adviseable to bring a light rain coat and ear plugs to anticipate the loud sounds.
Additionally, to avoid the traffic you can always opt to take taxi or commute by MRT instead!
Equip yourself with some general Grand Prix’s information, which is usually available in the brochures and circuit map. Take some of the leaflets and study the overall situation so you know your way around better.
The Singapore Grand Prix’s concerts is another important highlight besides the race with power performances from the best musicians in the world. So spare your energy and make sure to plan well for the concerts!
If you time to spare, check out the merchandise and fun booths spread around the venue. There’s also the famous Singapore Flyer for that extra heart-pumping ride. Lastly, stay put longer and catch the magnificent fireworks to end the night.
You may want to lower your expectation with your camera. Fast cars and nighttime are not exactly the best combination for the best photography results. If you still want to preserve your Grand Prix memory, bring your trusted traveling photography along to enjoy the moment to the fullest.
