    I find St. Kilda convenient for access to the track. If I’m flush it’s the Cosmopolitan though I have stayed at the Acland St. Easystay. Acland St. has plenty of cafés and restaurants . I stay in the Clarke stand. That way I get the 16 Tram to St.Kilda in St. Kilda Rd. which avoids the Canterbury Rd.crush.

    I have to collect my tickets in the morning. Weird arrangement for ticket collection.
    I’ll find out where I am then

    I’m settled in at the Radisson. I can walk to the nearest Metro station in 12 minutes. I have tickets for Grandstand F. I was also at Austin but had 2 nights in Buenos Aires in between. I wish I hadn’t in a way. I’m a bit worn out not helped by the traffic from the airport to my hotel.

    Mid level Turn 15 for me. Traveling from Australia for the race, trying to economize on the tickets seems pointless. Done my ticketing for Sao Paulo as well now so lots of long haul flying to do.

    I’ve just printed off my vouchers for 6C.
    We’re staying in Milan ( Hotel Cavour). Compared to commuting to Suzuka from Nagoya last year this should be OK.

    If it’s four or five star you’re after, Orchard Rd is the best value. Marina Bay, Clarke Quay, City Hall jack up the rates too much. I stayed in Geylang for my 09 return visit. The Fragrance Emerald. Handy to Kallang shuttle bus and cheap, less than$100/night. It is in the red light district but like Singapore, quite safe.

    Thanks Mick. What’s the food like at the track. I’m used to Melbourne where the food is fairly good, Singapore which is good in places, Japan which is OK and Korea, vile.

    I’m currently deciding on what stand to sit in. At the moment I’m favouring one of the Alta Velocita 6 stands . I’ve just done my seat for Spa, Eaurouge Gold 3. This will be a pretty memorable trip, with a stop in Mulhouse between Brussels and Milan to see the car museum.

    I’ll be back again in 2012. Prost Premium stand. Staying again at Easystay 65 Acland St. St. Kilda ( much easier to get to the track than the city).

    I’ve just decided to go to Spa and Monza next year. Haven’t really decided on a stand, & have no idea where to stay or how to get to the circuits. Recently returned from Singapore ( easy), Japan ( arduous) and Korea ( testing) and have decided to do some European races.
