#F1NightRace

4 Oct

Well I survived the Singapore Grand Prix or #F1NightRace as we were told to hashtag it on twitter.

I bought the T-Shirt and Cap and I have the lanyards to prove it!

It went for three whole days (yep, the only thing it had going for it really was that it was in Singapore!).  Because it is so hot and humid in Singapore the races were held in the afternoon/night – starting at 3.00pm each day. Day 1 was practice laps, Day 2 qualifying laps, Day 3 the races.

The actual event itself was fun.  There were several stages set up throughout the grounds with different acts playing throughout the day/night.  There was also several displays, car simulator rides, a tattoo station, food/beer stalls, old car displays etc.  Each night after the races there was a concert where some of the entertainment included The Killers and Rihanna.

As for the actual sitting in the grand stand, watching the cars lap around and around………well it was ok.

I have to admit the second day I took my iPad and found myself a deckchair in the shade and read my book during a couple of the qualifying sessions (just the two that were held during the day………..I have red hair and fair skin…..I just can’t handle the sun ok!!).

Overall…..it was definitely an experience and I can say that I have been to a Grand Prix.

Would I go again?

Probably not for the three whole days, but I would attend on the third day for the big race itself!!

    3 days is really a marathon isn’t it? More than a marathon, in fact. But you look pretty relaxed in that deck chair so I’m glad you made it manageable.

    Well see… you sort of got to be a bit of a petrol head to enjoy it to the inth degree… Of course I am a little bit of a petrol head. For me though probably the only thing missing would be those wonderful V8’s that I could watch and listen to for hours… 🙂

    At least you can say ” been there done that”! I went to see the Moto GP in Melbourne when I was pregnant with my first and it was fantastic but that was because I got to see Casey Stoner and Rossi!! Just metres away 🙂 x

    It’s another experience to add. I’d love to go to Singapore one day! Did you get the chance to visit the city?
