Ticket-holders can experience the 2011 FORMULA 1 SINGTEL SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX from the world’s largest observation wheel
Singapore, 20 April 2011 – Race promoter Singapore GP has confirmed the integration of the Singapore Flyer into Zones 1 and 2 of the Marina Bay Street Circuit during the 2011 FORMULA 1 SINGTEL SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX. It will allow Zone 1 and Premier Walkabout ticket-holders complete access to the Singapore Flyer grounds and the world’s largest observation wheel.
Located between the last two turns (22-23) of the Marina Bay Street Circuit, the Singapore Flyer offers views of the Pit Building and starting grid below. With a peak altitude of 165 meters above the track, the Singapore Flyer also offers panoramic views of the rest of the circuit and Singapore’s spectacular city skyline.
This is the second time that Singapore GP is partnering Singapore Flyer to offer the unique viewing experience. Pit Straight, Turn 1, Turn 2 and Republic (Turn 3) grandstand and hospitality suite ticket-holders, as well as Formula One Paddock Club and Premier Walkabout spectators can take unlimited rides, subject to capacity, on the giant observation wheel. Express boarding lanes cater exclusively for Paddock Club and hospitality suite guests.
Spectators can also view up-close, the support race paddock which is located adjacent to the Singapore Flyer and enjoy a myriad of shopping and dining experiences at the Flyer, including the recently launched Singapore Food Trail, a unique dining concept that evokes the nostalgic feel and charm of the lion city in the 1960s.
As part of the integrated layout*, the Double Helix Bridge within Zone 2 offers a panoramic view of the city skyline and selected sections of the track. All Zone 1 and Premier Walkabout ticket-holders will be able to enjoy exclusive access through a gate installed on the 280-meter long pedestrian bridge, linking the Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort to the Circuit Park.
All Zone 1 ticket-holders including Premier Walkabout patrons will also enjoy access to the Padang main entertainment stage within Zone 4 where multi award-winning band Linkin Park will be performing on race day, 25 September 2011. Full details of the complete S$5 million entertainment line-up will be announced in the coming months.
