A truly Uniquely Singapore F1 Experience!

Where on earth can you catch F1 night racing in a Street Circuit and to even view it from 165 metres above the ground?

Only in Singapore!

Clauds and I got a pair of the tickets each from 24seven to experience F1 at the Singapore Flyer last Saturday (Qualifying Race) and we brought Cl0udi3 and Qiquan along with us! Even though I just had my virgin Singapore Flyer visit just one Saturday before this, I was extremely excited when I was notified that I’ve been given the Singapore Flyer F1 Level 1 Access tickets! While we were recalled back last minute to work full day on Saturday at the office, this did not dampen our mood for this event!

Given to the massive road closure in town, the package includes a 2-way Hippo River Cruise ride which brought us from Clarke Quay to the Singapore Flyer! We had 2 rides on the Singapore Flyer – one before the race and 1 during the race! While the actual Level 1 Access package only comes with 1 Singapore Flyer ticket, we had the Media Passes which entitle us unlimited rides!

The view from the top was great, but too bad, my Sony Cybershot H20 did not really perform very well this time round as the vehicles move really fast! We could still hear the engine sound from the top! Since the Singapore Flyer ride was about 30 minutes, we had the remaining 20 minutes to view the F1 racing at the ground level.

This is when I got to know the reason of it being called the “Level 1 package” – Sorry, no access to level 2 viewing area, ok? So in the end, we braved through the loud noise produced by the F1 vehicles without any ear plugs and positioned ourselves pretty near to the race track!

It was great to experience F1 in person at the event ground! More photos can be found in my flickr set! This is a truly “Uniquely Singapore” experience where you can’t get anywhere else! A big thank you to 24Seven for having us there!

    Ya, got to thank 24seven for the tickets.

    You know you could have gotten ear plugs from the information counter at the Sg Flyer? We got ours from them, it was too painful for the ears without the plugs 🙂

    I like the bird’s eye view though. It was cooling up there. LOL..

    Hi Keropokman! Thx for dropping by! We didn’t know where to get the ear plugs and it was the last 20 mins… It’s ok lah… My ear drums are still working!

    Welcome welcome! (On behalf of 24seven) Glad you all had fun and your ear drums still intact. =P
