Singapore sales start strongly

Strong start to Singapore sales

Singapore ticket sales start strongly as fans seek to secure a spot at the 2009 race

Public grandstand sales for the 2009 Singapore Grand Prix opened yesterday, with more than 20 per cent of the available tickets fro all grandstands aside from the Bay Grandstand being taken up.

The vast majority of sales - with the Pit, Padang and Connaugh Grandstands proving most popular - have come through an improved on-line booking system, authorised overseas sales agents and the hotline call centre. The SISTIC Box Office, at the Indoor Stadium reported relatively low volumes of walk-up customers.

“We are encouraged by the strong response and pleased that the early bird prices are popular with race fans,” Michael Roche, Executive Director of Singapore GP, said. “The improvements to the ticketing system and call centre have ensured that no major transaction issues were reported today.”

Due to the strong response to the tickets going on sale, the grandstand at turn three as well as Walkabout and Bay Grandstand tickets will now go on sale on 20 April.

The turn three grandstand sales had been on hold pending its realignment to maximise viewing opportunities.
