It’s like no other F1 grand prix i’ve been to!

In response to the blog posts that have been up, there was a response from a fellow blogger who is an ardent traveller and was at the Singapore Grand Prix last year. So I asked him a couple of questions, and this is what he had to say:

1. How did you capture the essence of F1 Singapore?

As a photographer I’m always taking photos! The grand prix is a great challenge as they’re moving so fast! The Singapore grand prix is such a beautiful sight too with the lighting. I also was able to make a short movie of the race telling the full story of the race in 7 minutes. from our view and the TV broadcast. It should help jog a few people’s memories!

2. Why did you decide to go? Why did you choose Singapore?

After visiting Singapore for the first tim in 2005 my wife and I were instantly hooked on the city. It’s culture, tidy streets, friendly people. When we heard they would not only have a street race but a night race the chance to come back was too great! It’s a very safe and happy city.

3. Would you like to go to Singapore again to watch the race?

We would happy come back to Singapore ever year to watch the race. It’s like no other F1 grand prix i’ve been to. Mingling with the drivers pre-race in the Swiss hotel, walking along the flood-lit track after qualifying. It’s just a spectacular event in a very spectacular city.

4. Would you recommend Singapore to everyone? Or would it just be to watch F1 live?

I’d definitely recommend visiting Singapore any time of year. The weather is consistently hot, there’s so many great districts to visit, the food is amazing and the night life is fantastic. It’s got it all.

5. 1 heart-stopping moment. (If there are more, please tell us!)

Watching Lewis Hamilton overtaking David Coulthard right in front of us was pretty special. Seeing Fellipe Massa driving off with his fuel hose is definitely another. Dancing like crazy to DJ Carl Cox after qualifying was also amazing. We met so many great people and even made new friends.

So, you heard him. Singapore is THE place to be to watch any F1 race. With all its brilliance in 2008, we’ll have to wait and watch what’s in store this year. Or better still BE THERE to see what happens!

    It sounds INCREDIBLE! I just entered a video contest they are hosting and am hoping to win a free trip to see it (only way I’ll be able to go). Check out my video if you get the chance –
