    Some tips for the Shanghai Grand Prix 2010

    1. According to my experience, drivers and team boss and staffs will stay in Shanghai Four Seasons Hotel (5 Stars) and Shangri-La Hotels ( 5 stars) instead of the trackside villas. So if you choose these hotels, there are a high probability to meet some famous guys.

    2. The metro Line 9 is completed this year and now you can take it directly from city center to the circuit. I highly recommend you not to take the shuttle bus because you can avoid the heavy traffic and save time if you take metro.

    3. Don’t miss Shanghai World Expo 2010. It will open on 1st.May and just some days later than the Grand Prix. You can visit both Grand Prixs and World Expo and make your trip much more valuable.

      Mark, just to correct you. Googling it, the line seems to be Line 11 rather than 9. This is still excellent news, though. :)

    Hey Guys – I am in China for work and will be heading to the GP. I have not bought a ticket as per the chat on this forum , hoping to pay a guard or buy outside??? I would never normally prepare for a GP like this but China is so empty? Crazy? Stupid? would you pre-buy a ticket? – I also have been lucky to be selected for a McLaren Pit your :)

    Happy to hook up with anyone if you want
    Cheers

    Hi
    Im very excited to be in Shanghai for this weekends race.
    Trying to figure out how to get to the track from central shanghai and am getting conflicting information. There does seem to be a station on line 11 but i have read that it will be closed on race day for safety reasons. Also read that there are shuttle buses although cant seem to find anything concrete.
    Does anyone have any confirmed transport information on the quickest and most cost effective way of getting there?
    Thanks
    Simon

      Please let me know the same as well.. Even I am not sure how to go there on the race day..

      no one here seems to know about the GP – amazing..
      tomorrow I will get a cab there which will not be the most cost effective!! if i can get a train back i will.
      I have seen 1 person with a F1 2010 Lanyard..other than that its non existent
