    Default Formula 1 - ALL WALKABOUT TICKETS SOLD OUT

    Well as a general shout-out....


    I was shock to be down at less then 2pm and all tickets are sold out not just for today but tomorrow too for all WALKABOUT TICKETS if you can believe it. They some how still have alot of $400-$600 for you t buy if you want as they will be pusing that to you when you go down.

    Anyway...hope you guys and gals can find an alternative way to shoot your shots... but from what I recce...they have the place very well barricaded or way too far to shoot nice shots well the stretch I was at from Raffles Place and also from City Hall when I was scrambling to a few booths ( Gate 1,2 5, 6 ) via MRT trips to look for even one ticket.

    No more tickets for TODAY and TOMORROW. Unless you want to pay for those more pricey ones.

    It is funny how they ran out so fast of walkabout tickets which should be more abundant then the grand stand which I thought were sold out. Ticket booth open from 12pm only and yet so fast sold out.....Nothing we can do I guess... sad man.

    I read it was not sold via the internet but at the booth located at the parks at various gate. I can not find anywhere it stated online that it sold out. That was the first thing I check 2-3 days back and again last night and today before i go down.

    As I read they say it is only available for sale offline...so when I saw the ticket online booking it list it as not available...I did hot think it means sold out. Now if sold out or "not available" means sold out or not for internet ordering...then here is the more funny thing. It is stated all GRAND STAND are "Unavailable" too .... so is that meaning..sold out?

    So how come just now girls at the ticketing booth were offering me $400 and $600++ grand stand tickets? They were suppose to be sold out...their website flash that if you look at it.

    Anyhooo...this is not going to solve nothing...I just want to tell people if they are looking for the walkabout tickets....just note there is no MORE for sale.

    trust me, it is much better to watch TV in terms of views, coverage and comfort..

    if u want to go in, get into the Grandstand Pit else u can forget abt the rest..

    fyi, drinks and food are expensive inside, mineral water $3, canned drinks $4-5, only fastfood outlets kept prices unchanged, for some.. they had a menu printed specially for F1 days.

    have lah but it is not branded ads but other cable tv shows..that is still ads what heheh... but it is alot shorter then Channel 5 for sure and well more professional and done by the foreign commentators who KNOWS THE F1...not like the local broadcast ones which are so .... DUH!.... I am sticking to my Cable TV telecast for sure.
