    Become an official photographer and you dont have anything to worry about. Free all access pass to the whole circuit. Thats the best way to go.

    Anyway this is stupid. Wonder if those pay $5000 can bring 1200mm f5.6 anot -.-
    It says here "all telephoto camera lenses must have a focal strength(sic) of greater than 200mm". Unless this is a typo, your 24-70 isn't allowed into the circuit park!

    Maybe the organizer knows that anything less than 200mm will not make good photos so they ask everyone to bring lens greater than 200mm, for good will.

    They do check bags entering F1 races. In Sepang, they check for dangerous weapons. In Singapore the checklist will be longer.

    i heard from a semi pro racer driver that the lighting will be brighter than those i had experience at the location infront of SCC during Chingay08. i shot Chingay with iso1000, f5.6, 1/60.

    with f2.8 lenses should be ablr to get 1/250.

    With a olympus dSLR and a 200mm lens, it would be 400mm!
    Then plus a 2x it would be 800mm!!
