    Yes, u can. It's open to all spectators. No entrance fee, so far. It's like the motorcross event.

    judging from the amount of dust/mud/dirt thrown up by these.. i think i'll go with a PnS.. maybe S5IS.. too risky for DSLR..

    Don't worry, use tele can liao. Based on my driving experience, u stand around 5 meters away should be safe. But when the cars run on gravels/stones, don't stand behind it cos stones will fly.

    Should be the same. If not, look out for Modded 4X4 or those with stickers. Cars like Toyota Rush, Prado, Rav4, Terios, Suzuki Jimny, Vitara, SX4, etc. will be running around that area.
