SingTel renews Singapore GP title sponsorship...More
65,000 general admission tickets for the 2011 FORMULA 1 SINGTEL SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX will be released for sale on 3 March 2011, 0900hrs (GMT+8). Race Promoter Singapore GP has introduced a number of new ticketing initiatives for the event, which will be held at the Marina Bay Street Circuit from 23 to 25 September.

”Building on the success of 2010’s sell-out, we have again reviewed all ticket prices to ensure they offer not only great value but also an unforgettable experience. In addition to our usual popular early bird ticket prices, we are delighted to offer race-goers a Group Booking Special so that patrons who buy in bulk can benefit from greater savings,” said Mr. Michael Roche, Executive Director, Singapore GP Pte Ltd.

Increased discounts for early bird grandstand buyers, offering up to a 17% saving on regular priced tickets

The tickets will be priced differently across two phases: Early Bird (3 March to 8 May) and Regular (9 May to race week).

The early bird phase offers fans savings of up to 17% with the Republic, Esplanade Waterfront, Padang and Bay Grandstands offering the best deals.

Introduction of Group Booking Special, offering greater savings for fans who pool four or more friends and family into one booking

A new group booking scheme for the three largest grandstands – the Bay, Padang and Pit Grandstands – is being introduced for 2011. This is in response to feedback from fans who have requested for special packages for groups of family and friends.

The Group Booking Special offers savings of up to 10% for fans who purchase four or more tickets in one booking. For greater savings, fans can put together a group of eight or more and enjoy up to 16% off.

By combining the early-bird discounts with the Group Booking Special, fans can enjoy up to 30% off a regular priced individual ticket in selected grandstands. For example, fans who purchase eight Bay Grandstand tickets during the early bird phase will pay S$208 each, instead of S$298 at regular single ticket pricing.

The Group Booking Special is applicable for the first 40% of the relevant grandstands’ inventory and is available via the official Singapore GP website and ticketing hotline.

Stamford Grandstand price lowered for 2011
The Stamford Grandstand has been lowered by S$200 in order to achieve optimal commonality of pricing amongst the grandstands in Zone 4. Spectators at the Stamford Grandstand enjoy close proximity to the main entertainment stage in the Padang.

New wheelchair accessible platform in Zone 1
To further benefit patrons with limited mobility, an additional wheelchair accessible platform will be constructed at Zone 1 this year.
Single-day walkabout and single-day Zone 4 wheelchair accessible platform tickets to be released at the onset of the regular phase

As with previous years, single-day Zone 4 Walkabout tickets that offer access to the largest entertainment stage at the Padang as well as the Esplanade stages will be released at the onset of the regular phase on 9 May. Single-day Zone 4 wheelchair tickets will also be released during the regular phase.

Linkin Park set to be the headlining act on race day
Multi award-winning band Linkin Park has been confirmed as the headlining act on race day, 25 September 2011 at the Padang main stage. Full details of the complete S$5 million entertainment line-up will be announced in the coming months.

“We’ve had very positive feedback from our enhanced entertainment program in 2010 and our announcement of Linkin Park is just the start of another stellar line-up of artistes for 2011. All tickets offer incredible value for money with world-class entertainment, all included in the price of the one ticket,” added Mr. Roche.

Tickets will be available for sale online (www.singaporegp.sg), via the ticketing hotline +65 6738 6738 as well as appointed travel agents from 3 March 2011, 0900hours (GMT +8 hours). Please refer to the attached Annex 1 for a complete list of ticket prices.

LINKIN PARK TO RETURN TO SINGAPORE FOR 2011 FORMULA 1 SINGTEL SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX

Singapore GP is proud to announce Linkin Park as the headlining band at the 2011 FORMULA 1 SINGTEL SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX. They will perform on race day, September 25, at the Padang main stage.

Grammy Award-winning Linkin Park have sold over 50 million albums worldwide since their debut album, Hybrid Theory was released in 1996.  Their latest release, ‘A Thousand Suns’, debuted at the top of Billboard’s Top 200 album chart and has produced two #1 singles. A Thousand Suns marks the 3rd consecutive Linkin Park album to reach number one. Produced by Rick Rubin and Linkin Park co-lead vocalist, Mike Shinoda, the album has been described as a psychedelic journey that explores the conflict between technology and humanity.

For the past six months, Linkin Park have been on the road in support of their ‘A Thousand Suns World Tour’.  Before coming to Singapore in September, they will also headline the Download and iTunes Festivals in England. 

Linkin Park’s live show is a transformative multi-media experience, with visual technology that befits the power of the music. The band was voted ‘Best Live Act’ at the 2010 MTV European Music Awards. The setlist will combine the biggest hits of the band’s career, as well as new material from ‘A Thousand Suns’.
