    Yes, I'm flying in by budget air on Saturday, got tickets at the K1 section, hope I'll get a decent view from there.

    What sort of itinerary are you guys looking at? (ie drive up and down on the same day? Stay 1 night?)
    Have been once before and don't mind going again just to watch the race and hear the roar of the V8 engines @ 19000rpm
    Might be fun to go in a group. I can drive up.
    If I go (and I don't promise anything yet), I would be interested in the covered hillstand section, which is going for RM120 (according to the website).
    Exploring! :)

    ZCA, glad to know you're interested! Any idea when you can be sure that you can make it?

    So far my schedule is ok. I don't think I wanna watch more than 1 day of racing. So for me, Sunday is sufficient.
    The only issue is the traveling time and possible jams.
    I would probably choose to spend Sunday night in Malaysia, on my way back, and cross back to Singapore on Monday.
    So Sun early morning head north.
    After race head south and stay 1 night (maybe Malacca), then back to Singapore maybe Monday morning.

    I will most likely to take an evening coach up to KL, take a break, go to the circuit on Saturday for the qualifying, Sunday for the race and return only on Monday. I think it's abit too rush and stressful to carry bags and cam around the circuit.

    By Coach, Luxury Tours and some smaller official travel agency (mostly run by Malays - pls pardon me, not being racist yah?! lol) will package Hotel/Ticket and transfers.

    For the past years, I have stayed in various hotels in KL - from 5 stars to 3 stars hotel (well, I used to bring avid F1 fans up to Sepang)..and I'm actually quite comfortable staying in Radius Int'l just for sleeping. It is located near Jln.Alor (famous food street) in KL, abt 5 mins walk. And abt 10 mins walk to Sungei Wang and other shopping centres.

    For me to rent a 8-seater van is not worthwhile. Better off to rent a car and travel together. Car rental + Insurance will be about S$120 a day (for M'sia use). Carpark Pass is between RM50 - RM150 (depending where is the carpark location...) for 3 days.

    Tickets, of course sold separately. I have so far only watched from the Mall area and Grandstand F. Fav is Citrine as I get a good view of half of the circuit. K1 Platinum (unless you get almost the next blk to K Gold) you get a good view of the starting grid and T1 and T2.

    The other popular seats are the K2 Hillstand RM60 (non-covered grassland) & C2 Covered Hillstand RM120 (grassland, which is pretty useless if it's gg to rain heavily like last year!!!) which are the cheapest.

    If anyone's interested to go as a group, you can PM me. See if I can put together something.

    Cheers Peeps!

    Happy Rabbit New year!!!
