Good seats still available at selected Grandstands

Singapore, 20 Aug 2008 - Ticket sales for the 2008 FORMULA 1™ SingTel Singapore Grand Prix continues to be brisk as the countdown clock hits the 39-Day mark.

"More than 95% of the tickets have already been sold, with 40,000 of the 100,000 tickets available per day, or 40%, sold to purchasers outside of Singapore," said Mr Teo Hock Seng, chairman of Singapore GP Pte Ltd, promoter of the world’s inaugural night Formula One race. "Over the three-day event, over 300,000 spectators will get to enjoy this unique race".

The strong sales performance is impressive, given that Singapore GP initially planned only 70,000 tickets when launched in February 2008. Though this number was subsequently increased to over 100,000 in the last few months, less than 5% of tickets are still available.

Although the larger grandstands are already fully sold out there are still some great viewing opportunities at the Padang, Connaught, Singapore Flyer, Turn 2, and Esplanade grandstands. Walkabout tickets are also fully sold out. General tickets can be purchased via the official website at www.singaporegp.sg or Singapore GP's appointed ticketing outlets in key markets outside of Singapore, including North America, Europe, Australia and Asia. Details of authorised distributors can also be found on the website.

Companies interested to purchase the last remaining corporate hospitality packages can contact the Corporate Sales Department at +65 67315900 or email hospitality@singaporegp.sg.
