OK so now I've got tickets - where do I go? Lighting is prob a smaller issue so can use the longer lenses either a 300mm or 400mm f4-6 should be ok with iso bumped up if necc.

Surely there must be areas that can afford a chicken wire free vantage point?

Anyone?

Cannot use more than 300mm lenses at the track.

Thanks, dude! So we can all now carry Super-duper lenses into the area. The walkabout area is pretty large. From the look on the map, walkabout tix holder cannot go to the Pit-stop and VVIP area at the start-end points. Anywhere else should be ok.

depending on wat u wanna shoot, there are a few nice locations from wat i assessed. The War memorial area is one where u can haf both direction of the track in near vincinity. I was hoping to snap some with the Esplanade as backdrop. But actual location still haf to be on-site to verify.

Let's all go and try our luck. =D

I got my walkaround vantage point... no wire or anything just a clear view and FREE!!! In fact, 70mm is just about right so can use 24-70 or 70-200, or anything at 50 - 85mm is pefect. But as many bros here like to say, "do your research." This spot is right on the track. And, if you walk around or look hard enough; wait, in fact don't look hard at all because it is obvious. :)

This one so good, I know for sure the race officials must have overlooked it. It's not in a restricted area and I promise, you guys have probably all seen this place and I will reveal it after the F1 for those that don't believe me. If you find it before the race, join me :)

I will give 3 hints, "The name of a planet, something with a lot of eyes, pinball"
If you guess those three you are well on your way. I cannot reveal the place because if i did, well, we know how a mass of csers looking for a freebie are.

happy guessing!
