    Was there last year, If you can get tickets for Zone1, the grandstand right at the end of the pit straight into turn1 should still have a accredited photographers enclosure from where they can shoot, during Fri and Sat test sessions, you can walk right on up, stand next to the "fenced" area or occupy a vacant seat and shoot without any obstacles in you path as you're on an elevated position.

    During the race itself, after about 10laps the ushers couldn't be bothered to keep turning away more and more photogs that were showing up and generally causing a nuisance, so they let us into the "enclosure" as the all the press photogs left by lap3 to scout out better locations on ground level.

    Heres some shots I took with a 400D + EF 70-200 f2.8 IS L

    That's quite a lapse in security. Over at our turn, we strictly forbid ticket holders onto the marshal areas, only accredited photographer or media people are allowed.

    By marshal areas do you mean on ground level, right next to the fence, beside the video crews? Because the photog area I was talking about is actually cut out from the top levels of the Grandstand itself, unless you're willing to throw your lens onto the track which I am inclined to believe, is highly unlikely, its hardly a security lapse.

    The press photogs were gone, there were a growing number of photographers congregating around that area with the intention to get shots as the cars came down the pit straight and obstructing the views of some, furthermore there weren't enough police to actually enforce the place so, the handful of ushers just gave up in the end.
    Let the public photogs in, no increase chance of bodily harm from a car crashing into a wall, no more complaints from seated spectators, happy photographers, ushers can go back to "observing". Win-Win situation.

    To clear ppl worried about lens, I have raised the qns to them and below is their reply

    Dear Mr Tan,

    Thank you for your interest in the 2009 FORMULA 1T SINGTEL SINFAPORE GRAND
    PRIX.

    We appreciate your transparency regarding the equipment you intend to bring
    into the circuit park. Our main concern, and that of Formula One Management,
    is that all equipment brought into the circuit park should not be for
    commercial purposes. If your equipment is deemed to look professional, you
    may be required to fill out a form at the entry gate stating that it is
    purely for personal use.

    Additionally, we would like to stress that the enjoyment of other spectators
    should not be impeded and we therefore urge patrons with photographic
    equipment to show consideration. Tripods and monopods will only be allowed
    in the general walkabout areas and not into the grandstands

    In conclusion, we do not see a problem with you bringing the equipment you
    have mentioned to the race. However, you may experience slight delay at the
    entry gate subject to filling out the form mentioned above.

    We look forward to welcoming you in September.

    Hi all, tickets on sale today onwards,

    had walkabout tickets last year..thinking of getting grandstand tix this year..
    no $$ for the more ex tickets, so looking at
    Bay Grandstand $248(earlybird) $298(normal)
    Padang Grandstand $498 $598
    Esplanade Waterfront Grandstand $498 $598
    though I am leaning towards bay grandstand,

    it it worth the extra $$ for the Padang and Esplanade grandstand?
    And for bay grandstand, being so big, how do we know which seats (high or low level) we will get?

    Thanks!

    Check the row number. View the PDF file and verify which block of seats are your seat in. I managed to get 1 row 10 seat in yellow block. Just one only.

    thanks for the effort wwjd82. my friend was actually asking me whether he could bring a 300mm into the walk about area.

    will have to wait till 20th for the walkabout tickets to be out then.

    The lower level seats are nearer to the track. Beyond row 30 it is very difficult to see the giant screen TV captions, digits, etc and you are unable to follow the race.

    I will post some photos taken from a point and shoot camera last year from around row 10.

    During the race i was seating at row 50 and i did not need ear plugs the moment the cars are spaced out.

    Photographers camp around the top of the grandstands at the back to get a clear nice shot, and security was quite relaxed so i'm sure people are able to move around.
