29 August 2023, Singapore – Demand for tickets to the Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix 2023 continues to be very strong, with 16 out of 23 categories currently sold out. Of the remaining categories, five have very limited availability.
Nearly all hospitality packages for the 14th edition of the night race have also been taken up. Only a limited number of seats remain at the Vista Suite and Pit Entry Lounge hospitality suites located opposite the pit entry at the Singapore Flyer.
Based on current inventory, the Marina Bay Street Circuit is expected to host approximately 250,000 spectators this 15 to 17 September 2023. The reduced capacity – some 17% lower than last year’s record-breaking attendance of 302,000 – is due to the closure of the Bay Grandstand as part of the redevelopment of The Float at Marina Bay.
“We were prepared that we would temporarily lose our biggest grandstand when we saw the redevelopment plans for the facility a few years ago and have been hard at work to actively identify potential sites for new viewing opportunities. We were always aware that we will not be able to completely replace the inventory, especially given the limitations of a street circuit,” said Adam Firth, Executive Director of Singapore GP Pte Ltd.
“Fortunately, we were able to overcome the challenges and recoup 10,000 tickets with several exciting new options for our fans. We are delighted to have such a fantastic response to the six new grandstands introduced earlier this year, and look forward to build on this momentum for a fantastic race weekend this September.”
With the event just weeks away, preparations for the Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix 2023 are on schedule. Visitors have plenty to look forward to, including a brand-new track layout and an exciting entertainment line-up of more than 40 artistes that includes Post Malone, Robbie Williams, Kings of Leon, Madness, Groove Armada and Culture Club.
