Singapore GP to launch Phase One of General Ticket sales.
Three day pass prices start at GBP60/82 Euro.

Singapore, 12 February 2008 -- Three-day passes to the 2008 FORMULA 1 SingTel Singapore Grand Prix will be officially launched for sale by race promoter Singapore GP on Thursday 14 February 2008, 0900 hours Singapore time (GMT+8).

A total of 70,000 tickets will be available in this first release. This will comprise 15,000 walkabout passes and 55,000 grandstand seats strategically located around the circuit. Tickets will be sold on a first-come-first-served basis and each customer will be allowed to purchase a maximum of eight tickets. This is to ensure that as wide an audience as possible gets to enjoy the inaugural Singapore Grand Prix. Tickets are expected to be in high demand.

The three-day passes are priced from SIN$168 (Euro 82*, GBP60*) for a walkabout to S$1,388 (Euro 675*, GBP500*) for the premier Pit Grandstand (see below for complete three-day pass pricing). These passes include a separate ticket for each race day at a special package price that offers savings of at least 15% over buying individual day tickets. A three-day pass can be used by three different people over the three days. However, tickets will not be interchangeable on the same day. All prices include the relevant processing fee and Goods and Services Tax (GST).

(*may vary subject to currency rates)

For security reasons the physical plastic commemorative tickets and lanyards will only be available for collection from June 2008. All patrons will however receive a printed confirmation at the time of booking.

Tickets and Passes can be purchased in the following ways:

* Via the official website www.singaporegp.sg. The website also includes descriptions of all the Grandstand locations, pricing and a seating chart.

* Via the dedicated ticket hotline on +65 6738 6738. The call centre is open from 1000 to 2000 hours Singapore time (GMT+8), Monday to Friday, and from Noon to 1800 hours Singapore time (GMT+8) on Weekends. For the 14 February 2008 only, the call centre will open at 0900 hours.

Singapore GP has also appointed several ticketing outlets and distributors in key markets outside of Singapore, including North America, Europe, Australia and Asia. A list of appointed agents can be found on our website www.singaporegp.sg from 14 February.

Weekend and single-day passes may be released in the future subject to available inventory after the sale of three-day passes.
