Singapore F1 2008 GP tickets. Priced from S$50 to S$7,000!

Tickets will be on sale from this November onwards. Corporate tickets first, and then sales to the public in mid-December.

Prices will range from a measly S$50 for the "trial races" (I think they mean the practice sessions or support races) - to a testicle-shrinking $7,000 for a paddock pass.

I've heard talk that hotel rates for track-side rooms will top US$1,000 per night. And that doesn't even include a 16 year old hooker to blow you while you watch the cars roar past.

SINGAPORE: Formula One fans will be able to get their hands on tickets to Singapore's first-ever Formula One Grand Prix by the end of the year. Corporate ticket sales will begin on 28 November, while public ticket sales will start in mid-December.

Singapore Grand Prix, the organiser of the race, said ticket prices would be kept affordable to ensure that many people would be able to enjoy it. Responding to Channel NewsAsia, Singapore GP, which controls 100 percent of the hospitality rights, said the cheapest ticket is likely to be around S$50 for the trial races.

During the actual race day, tickets will cost around S$100.

And for the exclusive paddock area, tickets will cost a whopping S$6,000 to S$7,000 each.

Singapore GP said it is fine-tuning the details, adding that mid-range packages would be made available.

These packages could include exclusive use of sky lounges for companies. There could even be an outdoor party, similar to a mini Zouk-Out, within the circuit park.

Some 80,000 to 90,000 people are expected to get a taste of the F1 action in Singapore. - CNA
