"Sepang Formula 1 2003 - Grandstand view...!" Sepang by saa73

Sepang Travel Guide: 19 reviews and 61 photos

Company finally gave me a free ticket!..not!

In 2003, I got fed up of sitting on the cheap, uncovered hillstands under the merciless tropical sun as in my previous trips to the F1.
As usual my company didn't allocate any tickets to me.
By a stroke of luck, my colleague was upgraded to the Perdana suite (which entitled him to tour the pit area) and handed his tickets down to me...whoopee!

up close and personal.....

The grandstands give you the best seats in the house. Formula 1 fans would know that the Sepang circuit has 2 long straights separated by the V shaped grandstands. This means that grandstand spectators get to see only half the overall track. My half featured the start/finish and pitstop action, but not much else. The other side, I was told, is more interesting if you like to watch the cars in action, taking curves/bends, etc.
The hillstands, although HOT, give you better views..but hey, I got these seats for free.. so who's complaining?

Other great views at the grandstands....

If you are thirsty, these lovely young ladies will gladly bring you a nice cold tinnie....

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Soak up the excitement of F1 with fellow fans from around the world.....
  • Cons:Quite hard to follow the progress of the individual teams/racers....that's much better on TV!
  • In a nutshell:Definitely the World's Hottest Race!!
