Advice on purchasing F1 tickets

Post by blueboy17 » Fri, 06 Apr 2012 3:06 pm

Hello

I've just signed up to move over to Singapore in the summer, very excited. As an F1 fan I am keen to make the most of being in the city by getting myself some tickets.

I have found the site online easily enough but before I commit that much cash I wanted to check if anyone had any info on scalpers selling tickets on the day? The last F1 race I was at in Korea had guys outside selling tickets for not much over half the price on the day. I know it is a chance to take but if it can save me some money I would rather do that. Alternatively if that is not something that happens at the Singapore race then I'll just get my tickets booked.

Any advice on the best place to watch it from?

Thank you

I'd be interested in advice on this matter as well. I was considering the premier walkabout tickets.

I've seen some people trying to get rid of their tickets on various online forums, but not so on the actual day on the spectator grounds.. anybody else know about the scalpers?

There are scalpers around. I'm pretty sure this happens in every race venue and for all that matters, when there are people doing such things, there are police around. Security has been getting tighter as the management realised these things happening and last year, I heard that they use UV stamps to ensure that the original ticket holder enters the place. I'm not too sure about that actually cause I wasn't exactly an attendee.

You can find scalpers at the usual places, like the gates. One area that's really hot, is the McDonald's at Raffles City.

as a ad-hoc f1 fan/helper, can i make a recommendation/share some advice?

1) avoid touts (as we locals call them!) you may end up buying fakes ones (whilst there is no checks that you are the original buyers) but each ticket has a unique security feature which only allows 1 person per feature. If you get caught.. the police is nearby :p

2) try scouting forums, searchin wtb (want to buy) or SPAMMER (want to sell) f1 ticket, when you meet the seller, might be good to ask for reciept of purchase. a lot youngsters buy tickets to watch certain performers, so they will sell away the dates they don't need.

3) if you are lookin for a specific grandstand
buy early.. if you don't know, buy a walk-about but be made aware that a walkabout ticket does not allow you accesses to grandstands.

hope this helps! else you can pm me for details
& questions :)
always happy to make a new fren...
