    The Hillstand C2 is also a good location for shooting. Especially the turn 9, 10 and 11, it should provide you good opportunities to capture some photos. But you need a longer lens to shoot here, at least a 400 mm, you need to set up a bit higher on the hill in order to avoid the fencing wire.

    I bought 2 tickets this year a K1 and the C2. I plan to shoot at C2 on Friday during the morning practice session, it should have plenty of actions here.

    Hi Richard,
    Looks like we were sitting quite close, last year !!!

    I shot the start of the race at a shorter focal length.



    And here's a closer look at the McLaren vs Ferrari battle...

    The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt....

    During the F1 weekend, hotel prices skyrocket. I stayed at Crown Princess - a real dump of a place. But its got free parking and driving to/from the circuit as well as from/to Singapore is very convenient as you can avoid the crazy traffic in KL.

    oh my. you still remember you seat. I think I was seated at C as well, can't remember my exact seat, as I moved to the front row later. The good thing about the K stand is that even from the front row, the barbed fence doesn't obstruct your view - perfect for photo taking.

    shot it with the Canon 100-400mm lens, will have to check the EXIF for the exact focal lengths. update later.

    No lah...it's good that he upload some sample photo from certain seat area in Sepang so that we can know what kind of equipment needed & whether the seat area is suitable for photography or not...not all ppl got budget for expensive seat...furthermore, not all ppl go 400, 500 or 600mm lens...

    BTW, thx for all who share the photo & info...at least now the 1st timer like me know what equipment to bring already...

    Maybe we can meet together n take the same bus together to KL or share car/petrol/toll/parking ...
    We book same hotel n I think it is safer for us to travel together especially some of you seniors have big expensive guns (>400mm lens) around in KL...
    So may we set a time to discuss it together...coz I have problem choosing the right hotel... (need to consider distance vs staying cost)...headache.

    Try locating on http://www.wikimapia.com or http://maps.google.com/ to check the distance

    Sepang Int. Circuit (SIC): 2.760277, 101.736488
    Pudu Raya KL: 3.143901, 101.702156

    If you are traveling by bus to Pudu Raya, to take a taxi to SIC, the fares will be too much. Cheaper to take a cab to KL Sentral, then buy a ERL rail ticket to KLIA, then take cab to SIC.

    Good luck

    Hi, I am keen to go also. I think its best that we all meet up to talk, get familiarised with each other. Also, i wonder if spouses are allowed too? I am ok with both.

    1) di0nysus (can probably try to drive), prefer K1 Gold ticket.
    2) Jace Photo (no car. no preference for transport or ticket but safety first)
    3)
