  • Singapore GP Press Release -EXTRA GRANDSTAND SEATS ADDED AS TICKET SALES HIT 80%
    The increased momentum in sales as the race dates approach is something that we expected might happen as other FORMULA ONE circuits traditionally experience the same buying pattern Whilst we never thought we would eclipse the remarkable attendance of our inaugural race we are delighted with such positive sales and we still have a little under a month to the race said Mr Michael Roche Executive Director for Singapore GP SGP Industry observers point out that established circuits often experience a decline in attendance ranging from 20 30 between the inaugural race and second year We did factor in this phenomenon when budgeting for this year s race It was one of the main drivers for ensuring the entertainment options from Backstreet Boys to Travis were considerably beefed up from last year It is clear that the renewed interest in the championship and the strong entertainment line up both around the circuit and in Singapore as a whole is a strong draw All said it does look like we are on track to exceed our expectations added Mr Roche Nearly 1 000 seats will be added to the Pit Grandstand as well as the Turn 3 Grandstand thus bumping up the overall number of tickets on offer to around 83 000 With slightly under four weeks to go before the race SGP is not discounting the idea of adding in more seats as they did in 2008 as seating within the Marina Bay Street Circuit is built to order For corporate hospitality 83 of the available corporate inventory has been taken up in the Club Sky and Green Room Suites as well as the Formula One Paddock Club About the FORMULA 1 SingTel Singapore Grand Prix The inaugural FORMULA 1 SingTel Singapore Grand Prix took place on 28 September 2008
