Akram_saheed posted a blog entry in MyAutoBlogEarly bird ticket sales for this year's Formula One Singapore Grand Prix have officially begun through various sales channels including its website, the ticketing hotline (+65 6738 6738) and all Sistic outlets. The early bird phase runs from now until the 30th of April, before prices revert back to normal rates from the 1st of May. Three new Combination Packages this year To cater to the increased demand for the popular Combination Packages introduced last year, Singapore GP has added three new combinations packages. The new Combination Packages offer a mix of Pit Grandstand, Padang Grandstand and Bay Grandstand and brings the total number of Combination Packages to seven, with prices ranging from $498 to $888 during the early bird phase. Group Booking Specials extended to two additional grandstands The Group Booking Special, which was first introduced in 2011, offers fans savings when they purchase four or more tickets in a single transaction. For better savings, patrons who purchase eight or more tickets in a single booking can enjoy more than 25 percent off a single regular priced ticket. Better still, this offer is extended to the Pit, Padang, Connaught, Esplanade Waterfront and Bay Grandstands. In addition, Esplanade Waterfront Grandstand tickets are cheaper by 14 percent - compared to 2013. Single day Zone 4 Walkabout tickets released earlier For the first time, single day Zone 4 Walkabout tickets are released during the early bird phase. They cost $68, $158 and $188 - for Friday, Saturday and Sunday respectively. Additionally, a limited number of Friday Zone 4 Walkabout tickets will be available at a promotional price of $38, exclusively for Singaporeans and Singapore residents. This promotion is only available for over-the-counter purchases at all Sistic outlets in Singapore, with a maximum of four tickets allowed per transaction. Zone 4 Walkabout tickets are ideal for patrons to catch the race up close at strategic locations, performances by international headlining acts at the Padang Stage as well as other entertainment acts within the zone. Stand a chance to meet your favourite Formula One driver In addition to cost savings, 15 lucky fans stand a chance to win a pair of exclusive passes for the Formula One Drivers' Autograph Session and pre-event cocktail reception on 18th September, with the purchase of any pair of Singapore GP tickets before the 1st of May. To participate, early-bird ticket holders need to register their ticket transaction number on the official Singapore GP website before 1st of May, 11:59pm, local time.
The end of the Singapore Grand Prix also marks the end of a very hectic week for all in the automotive and media industry. Over the past couple of weeks, we have been swamped, with numerous events and press conferences to attend in the lead up to the big race here. While some might be sad after the night race, I'm sure more than a few others would breathe a sigh of relief at the end of the crazy schedule that we have to contend with lately. Over here at sgCarMart, we are no less busy, with the unprecedented number of events stretching our resources to the limits. And, being short of manpower, we had to sacrifice a few of these as we simply could not split ourselves into multiple parts to be at various places at the same time. Nevertheless, we endeavoured to bring our readers as much as we can, to the best of our ability. We were there, for example, to catch Michael Schumacher's first public appearance in Singapore. Then we caught up with David Coulthard, and some of the Red Bull Racing team, at the Infiniti Dynamic Drive event at Changi. We also dropped by the TechArt Party by Autovox, where Force India driver Adrian Sutil made an appearance, unfortunately too late for us to take a photo. But there were lovely Porsches around nonetheless. As the race weekend neared, the events started to ramp up, and we were lucky enough to visit The Podium Lounge at the Ritz Carlton just before the race, thanks to Aston Martin. Finally, one day before the race, we managed to catch Lotus-Renault GP's press conference, with the team consisting of Vitaly Petrov and Bruno Senna, test driver Fairuz Fauzy, team principal Eric Boullier, and Lotus chief Dany Bahar. And of course, the race itself. Obviously we didn't manage to catch every single event, because as mentioned, we only have so many of us, but still, all in all, it was an exhilarating experience. A bit like a roller coaster ride actually. Or an F1 race.
The organisers of the Singapore Grand Prix are looking for the World's Biggest F1 Fan, with prizes such as a hotel stay at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore as well as Hospitality Suite tickets to this year's race up for grabs. This is the second year that the contest has been running now, and the organisers have now opened it up to the rest of the world, instead of just Asia, so competition will be stiffer than ever. There are two contests that participants can enter in, with both offering a tough challenge as well as fantastic prizes. The first, and main, contest is called "Are You The World
