    Thanks, for the race would you recommend Turn 1 or 2 as being the best?

    Turn2block A2 Row 10 and above are the prime seats with best view. You are however further away from the cars here than anyone her grandstands.
    If you want to be closer to the cards goes for Turn 1 Blocks A4-6.

    Thanks again, Have booked Turn 2 Block A2 and Row 19 for the weekend. Couldnt resist getting the view straight down the pit straight and turns 1 and 2. Turn 1 looked good but guess you’re mainly viewing the back of the cars through turns 1-3.

    Justified it as a one off expense to pay the extra as not going to do it again so might as well get good seats!

    The strength of the SG$ is a worry this year. A couple of years ago it was 25% in my favor. Last year it was virtually 1:1 (after fees) and it looks like the same this year. Any one thinking of waiting to order tickets, you can still get good T1/2 tickets right up to August in my experience but the early bird rate is tempting (ends in May I think).

    Yeah did do a quick check against the Singapore Dollar vs Pound Sterling before i booked. Luckily for me its the best rate for about 3 years ($2.10 to £1) but has generally been pretty steady at around 2:1

    Not long to go now, just got notification of the ticket collection point. Its the same as the last few years… Raffles City convention centre.

    Hey, just joined the group and have tickets for the Singapore race – a first for me and the wife. So, apart from ear defenders, radios, what advice for us from others who have been before? Clothing wise, are shorts tees and lightweight wet weather gear enough? 26 degrees in the evening doesn’t sound too bad. What are prices like as we are on b&b only – and any suggestions for eating places that won’t kill us budget wise. And anywhere to visit on our ‘day off’?
    Thanks in advance.
