    Does anybody have an idea on a good “Premier Walkabout Spot” where I can watch the race from? I have access to all four zones. If so, and you don’t want to make it publicly know, you can just message me.

    Thanks in Advance

    Finally, after going back and forth for 4 years (I’m going, not going, going, not going) I’m “officially” off to Singapore in September for the Race Weekend.

    We’re doing a 10 day trip splitting Singapore w/ Tokyo for 5 Days Each. Can’t wait!!!

    Shoutout to Mankster and the rest of you guys for all your insight over the years in providing insight on the overall game plan with dealing with the Circuit and its variables.

    I was able to hop on the Super Early Bird Special ticketing back in November in which I got the seating in the Pit Grandstand for Friday & Saturday and Premier Walkabout Tickets for Sunday. I’m currently attempting to trade in my Premier Walkabout Tickets on Sunday for Esplanade Waterfront Waterfront Grandstand Tickets. I contacted Singapore GP and spoke with a representative about 2 weeks ago and they said that i couldn’t trade the tickets in even though the Esplanade Waterfront Tickets are valued $100 less each than the Premium Walkabout Tickets. What they told me was I can only “Trade Up” but I can’t “Trade Down”. I found that to be a bit odd since I’m willing to eat the difference in price of the tickets anyway.

    With that being said do you any of guys have any history with being able to trade and/or swap tickets through the ticket office on race weekend? I’m planning to call back once the Early Bird Special they are currently running expires in May and try again. Hopefully by that point, they might be a little more willing to allow me to make the swap.

    Have any of you guys received your tickets as of yet? Per Monza, we should have been able to download them via there website in June, but it’s Mid July and I have yet to have received an e-mail confirming that my tickets are able for download and/or to be printed.

    I shot an e-mail over to Monza two days ago and still haven’t heard anything back as of yet. Hopefully this is just an anomaly and nothing more.

    Thanks Stefan. I’ve decided to jump and get two tickets in Grandstand 26. My question is though, how can I select the actual seats I want? Per the Monza site, I’m only allowed to select the grandstand that I want, but not the actual row and seat. Does anybody know of a way to circumvent this?

    I’ll be staying in Milan Friday – Tuesday before heading up to the Cernobbio for 5 days on the Lake. Can’t wait! (Bart Scott Voice)

    What’s up everybody! So it looks like I’ll be hitting up Monza this year as I booked a deal on a flight that was too good to pass up (Just can’t seem to make it to Singapore).

    Anyways, I’m more of a street course guy (Been to Monaco the past 2 years and hence the infinity for Singapore) though I did do Austin in November.

    I bring this up since Monza is a speed track and the total anthesis of a slow circuit like Monaco. Even at the USGP, we stayed at Turn 1 (General Admission) so the cars weren’t moving at a great rate of speed.

    I think I now want to now get the opportunity to enjoy the raw speed of these cars hence nowhere better than Monza.

    Can anybody advise as to which grandstand is preferable as I would like to see at least some aspect of the pits as well as not be obstructed by the catch fence. How high up would I need to be? All input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I’ve been flip flopping between going back to Monaco next year (Did attend this years GP) or the Singapore GP.

    Money alone, going to back to Monaco will cost me at least an additional $1,500.00 USD but I will be able to slide up to Paris for the French Open which I’ve always wanted to do.

    Anyways, I stayed in Nice (In Magnan) in an apt. that cost me not even $400 for 4 days. I took the advice of some Grand Prix vets who advised I buy my train tickets from Nice to Monaco in advance so that I would not have to queue on race day. Great piece of advice!!! Even though I still ended up waiting in a massive line for about an hour, the line for people without tickets was even longer.

    My advice to the thread starter would be to pop off for Race Day tickets and skim on accommodations if you could. If your just a casual F1 fan, then going to the practice session might make more sense.

    Also, stay in Nice if money is an issue and attempt to buy your sncf ticket in advance “if” your going to Monaco on race day. The train station in Nice isn’t as packed on Saturday as it is on Sunday.

    @mankster Thanks for the insight.

    Final question, what is the Aedes Mosquito situation like in and around Marina Bay and metro Singapore for that matter during Grand Prix Weekend? Me and my girlfriend would be attending the race together and the both of us are terrified of contracting Dengue Fever which apparently remains a problem in the region. We live in The Northeast US and only really travel to Europe when we leave the country so pardon my ignorance when it comes to this.

    We went to Monaco earlier this year and she’s been pretty much begging me to choose Monte Carlo over Singapore due to the presents of these mosquitoes. Though, I don’t want to put either of us in harms way and I know there are no guarantees, I just want to make the best decision possible based on all of the information that I’ve been collecting. Thanks in advance

    @thecollaroyboys Thanks for the heads up. I primarily just want to get the start/finish line, pits, etc for photo ops. I’m just hoping I can get an upper corner in the right side of A3 of the Esplanade so that I can see down the straight.

    Been looking for Video to see exactly what that vantage point would look like, but so far no luck.

    Does anybody have any experience with the Esplanade Waterfront Grandstand??? If so, how was the viewing experience? I’m thinking about jumping on the early bird special for 2014, particularly in a high row of section A3. I’m attempting to obtain a good vantage point of turns 16, 17 and possibility 18 if I can get seats in the that upper corner of the grandstand that looks down the barrel of the straight.

    Between the aforementioned objective, being on the Marina and its ambiance (photography opportunities), and having a screen in the vicinity (I know I’m going to have to break my neck towards the left), it seems as if it’s a better option than the Bay Grandstand with a little more to offer outside of not having Zone 3 access.

    Finally, once the race is finished, will I be able to walk the entire track being that I only have access to a Zone 4 ticket? Or are only Zone 1 and Premier Walkabout ticket holders allowed this privilege? I understand not being able to infiltrate zones during or before the practice session, qualifying and the race, but after these conclude would seem a bit unfair.

    Thanks in advance for any insight.

    Hello everybody

    How long did it take for you guys to receive your ticket through the mail? I ordered my tickets on the 15th of January and still haven’t received them as of yet. I’m just a little anxious about the whole process since on the terms of agreement section of the acm.mc website while purchasing the tickets, they made some sort of reference to the fact that they are not responsible if tickets are lost in the mail. Though I did pay the extra 16 euro for Insurance on the two tickets.

    For the record, I’m in the US if that makes a difference.

    Thanks
