'Sell-out' sign goes up for 2010 FORMULA 1 SINGTEL SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX
23 September 2010 – Race promoter Singapore GP is delighted to announce that the 2010 FORMULA 1 SINGTEL SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX is a sell-out.
All released tickets were sold out late on Thursday afternoon and the online ticketing service was shut down, although a few hundred tickets will be available on a first come, first served basis at selected gates around the Marina Bay Street Circuit on Friday morning.
These tickets were deliberately held back as a means of combating secondary ticket-selling and will be released for sale at 14.00 hours on Friday September 24 at major gates and at the main ticket sales centre at the Raffles City Convention Centre (RCCC) at Level 4. The breakdown of available ticket categories is as follows:
Turn 2 Grandstand: available at Gate Ticket Booths 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 10 and RCCC
Stamford Grandstand: available at Gate Ticket Booths 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and RCCC
Padang Grandstand: available at Gate Ticket Booths 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and RCCC
Bay Grandstand: available at Gate Ticket Booths 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and RCCC
Friday and Saturday Walkabout: available for sale at Gate Ticket Booths 3 and 7 and RCCC
Michael Roche, Executive Director of Singapore GP Pte Ltd, said: “We are delighted to see in our third year such a positive, enthusiastic and overwhelming response to the total offering of Paddock Club, hospitality suites, grandstands and walkabout tickets. Fans of the event at all price levels have come back and endorsed what we hoped would be another great year in the history of the Singapore Grand Prix.
“Overseas interest has significantly surpassed last year’s and local interest saw a strong surge once the broader entertainment line up was announced.
“Our ticketing and overseas travel partner officers are flat out fulfilling demands on last-minute interest and we are assured now of a full house and 'Sell Out' for what promises to be another superb weekend of racing on our Marina Bay Street Circuit.”
The number of tickets available for each of the three days of the event was 81,350 per day, or approximately 244,000 over the race weekend.
