Attend the Singapore F1 GP in style: Mercedes offers special ticket package for 2017
Aug 4, 2017, 10:17 AM

Mercedes AMG Formula 1 team has launched a new ticket package for the 2017 Singapore Grand Prix which includes a chance to meet key team members.

Mercedes AMG Formula 1 team has launched a new ticket package for the 2017 Singapore Grand Prix which includes a chance to meet key team members.

The leading F1 constructor will invite fans who purchase this ticket package to the Paddock Club on Thursday (September 14) to enjoy a meal with team members as well.

Seated at the pit grandstand, across from Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas' pit-boxes, those fans who shell out for the ticket will also receive a sort of 'goodie bag' including autographed cards from the drivers, Mercedes flags, and caps among other souvenirs.

This same package was launched in 2016 in collaboration with Red Bull; the Singapore GP continues to offer its unique take on fan engagement this year as well.

Two of those ticket holders will also have the chance to win an upgrade to the Mercedes Hospitality Suite on either September 15 or 16; the prize also includes the chance to watch free practice or qualifying from the pit garage itself.

One catch: it isn't cheap. The Experience Package sets you back S$1,925 and the website usefully points out that a maximum of five can be purchased by one person.

Yet, it does signal a move by promoters for grand prix weekends to offer more off-track action. The Singapore event boasts concerts by artists such as Calvin Harris, Ariana Grande, Duran Duran and Seal playing across four different stages at the Marina Bay Street Circuit to offer more of an incentive to potential spectators.

Attendances for 2016 suffered, with 219,000 spectators counted over the whole GP weekend, whereas the 2009 iteration drew around 240,000. The 2018 night-time race is still in doubt as the SGP promoter hasn't finalised its contract with Formula One Management.
