Singapore GP launches Phase One of General Ticket sales on 14 February 2008
Singapore, 14 February 2008 - Three-day passes to the 2008 FORMULA 1™ SingTel Singapore Grand Prix will be officially launched for sale by race promoter Singapore GP on 14 February 2008, 0900 hours (Singapore time GMT+8).
A total of 70,000 tickets will be available in this first release. This will comprise 15,000 walkabout passes and 55,000 grandstand seats strategically located around the circuit. Tickets will be sold on a first-come-first-served basis and each customer will be allowed to purchase a maximum of eight tickets. This is to ensure that as wide an audience as possible gets to enjoy the inaugural Grand Prix as tickets are expected to be in high demand.
The three-day passes are priced from S$168 for a walkabout to S$1,388 for the premier Pit Grandstand (see Annex A for complete three-day pass pricing). These passes include a separate ticket for each race day at a special package price that offers savings of at least 15% over buying individual day tickets. A three-day pass can be used by three different people over the three days. However, tickets will not be interchangeable on the same day. All prices include the relevant processing fee and Goods and Services Tax (GST).
For security reasons the physical plastic commemorative tickets and lanyards will only be available for collection from June 2008. All patrons will however receive a printed confirmation at the time of booking.
