But as many bros here like to say, "do your research." This spot is right on the track. And, if you walk around or look hard enough; wait, in fact don't look hard at all because it is obvious.

    This one so good, I know for sure the race officials must have overlooked it. It's not in a restricted area and I promise, you guys have probably all seen this place and I will reveal it after the F1 for those that don't believe me. If you find it before the race, join me

    I will give 3 hints, "The name of a planet, something with a lot of eyes, pinball"
    If you guess those three you are well on your way. I cannot reveal the place because if i did, well, we know how a mass of csers looking for a freebie are.

    happy guessing!
    Bro, go and take a look at the place again. It will be sealed up before the race. the setup is not ready yet. Go down tonight and see. I saw them fixing up the fence this morning.

    Your hint is so obvious and why not share with the bros here..

    those who want to get the ans, do not pm me. I am not the thread starter.

    OT a bit

    A: Hey, I know a great model to shoot, but I am not telling you who. She has 2 eyes , one nose...blah blah
    B: What the ^%$^. Why did you mention if you did not want to share

    A: Can someone critic my picture
    B: Go read up on your manual to learn how to operate the camera function first. Oh yea. I learn how to reply from this thread. Great isn't it?

    Talking about a community

    Sigg...
    i did not share because i see a lot of times of people will jump on someone asking a question and say "go do your own research." And what you said is precisely right, if it is a community then we should be helping each other.

    Therefore, I at least gave a hint so at least I am making an effort to meet csers half way who have a bit of imagination

    to answer another question no it's not esplanade.

    to answer a further question, yes, they are gradually sealing it up and when they complete it, i am 99.9% sure they will not have touched this area. It's really not a secret and quite obvious.

    Another hint to go with the other three... "can be on grass"

    Well, either say it out loud if you wanna share, else zipped. Reason being, you invite questions from ppl when you just hint as ppl will tot that u will share, but in fact, u did not wanted to, which only god knows that.

    Anyway, thank you for hinting ya...not going to guess or think so hard for the answer, as I have 3 good full-days to explore.

    Good Luck to all those who can find a good spot..have fun shooting...rain or shine...
    Life is short, enjoy it!;)

    Cameras and Tripods

    Thanks for your feedback here and again we have some positive changes to report. The restriction on lens focal length and tripods (including monopods) has been removed. However, tripods and monopods may not be used in grandstands or in locations where they may block other spectators views. All are now allowed subject to a strict personal use policy. The rights to all images belong to Formula One Management Ltd, and cannot be used for any commercial purpose without the express approval of the company. By agreeing to enter the circuit, you have agreed that the images captured are solely for your personal (amateur) use only. We reserve the right to remove any photographic/videographic equipment from the park should we feel are meant for commercial purposes.

    why should i zip?
    for bros with a little imagination this will be like gold for them. and like i said, if i tell it openly here, or to one person who then tells another and another, then it will be ruined for others so I am trying to make it fair. some of you guys really like baby, want to be spoonfed.

    this place will not be fenced off because there is no way to fence it off. like i said for bros with some imagination, some creative thinking, they will be rewarded. for those that only get pissed cause i won't spoonfeed, well, such is life. afterall, it's not like i am trying to exploit anyone here for money in exchange for me to tell them.

    Thanks for sharing this one!

    In terms of spectator safety, there will unlikely be any spots without a fence. Except those small little holes thich u can stick a camera lens thru-which could be for the FIA photogs. In general, a good shot can be taken from most grandstands which are near/inside the corners.

    Outside of corners should be harder to take good shots.

    I'll be heading down later when the rain stops.. Hopefully by 4pm.

    there are indeed areas without chicken wires. quite a few actually.
    if u are lucky enough to find a spot in that place, u don't even need a very long lens, and the lightings is really bright.

    this is from using 100mm FF equivalent.
    Is it legal to post these photos during the F1 GP...

    Better bring a poncho to stand-by. Weather looks un-promising so far...

    Can we do multiple entry? I mean if I have to leave.. can I re-enter again?

    Let's say I would like to shoot from 2:00pm-6:30pm and then have to leave but wants to return again at 8:00pm, am I allowed to re-enter?
