Updated: Jan 27
2 October 2022, Singapore – The Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix 2022 has set a new record for the highest attendance ever in its 13-year history.
After a two-year absence due to the global 2019 pandemic, the Marina Bay Street Circuit welcomed a sold-out record crowd of 302,000 over three days from all over the world, including Australia, the United Kingdom, Indonesia, Netherlands and the USA.
Since the gates opened on 30 September 2022, fans have returned in droves, fuelled by the return of Formula 1, the debut of two new support races and over 100 hours of entertainment over the race weekend.
“It is wonderful to welcome fans back to the Marina Bay Street Circuit. The return of Formula 1 was highly anticipated, with tickets snapped up within hours of the launch earlier this year. From the time we announced our contract renewal at the end of January, we have had several months of intense planning to put together a mega show to signal our return in a big way. In addition to the race action, we have curated an exciting range of entertainment, interactive and gastronomic experiences for the fan zones, as well as introduced new grandstands and hospitality facilities,” said Mr. Colin Syn, Deputy Chairman of Singapore GP Pte Ltd.
Over the last two days, fans were treated to an entertainment line-up that included Marshmello, Westlife, Black Eyed Peas, Suede, and TLC. Tonight, the stage is set for a thrilling finale to the Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix 2022 weekend, with Charles Leclerc in pole position, Sergio Perez in second, and Lewis Hamilton third on the grid. Ticketholders can also look forward to performances by Green Day and The Kid LAROI at the Padang Stage, as well as the Black Eyed Peas at the Wharf Stage tonight.
