    if you expect a good and helpful answer, you should provide more information.

    Are we supposed to deduce:
    1) that your current lens 'arsenal' is stated in your signature?
    2) your intended type of shots (crowd, a group of cars, the driver's helmet close-up, the grid girls.... etc)
    3) your seating position

    just from your one sentence?
    Exploring! :)

    from the way you ask, i assume that you are just going there to random shoot... so just bring ur zoom lens.. go and see got what nice then shoot lor...

    no point think too much at this last minute...

    I think the Sigma APO 200-500/2.8 will be very good for F-1. You get the range and the fast aperture... This lens is simply awesome (in every sense of the word).

    Read the glowing reviews in the second link. Very interesting reads.
