  • Andy B: Hi Wiz, I have tried to make a donation using my UK bank account but PayPal will not accept the card as I live in NZ and have a UK card? This is not your problem but is there a way I can just pay directly with a Visa card?

2015 Singapore Grand Prix
« on: September 21, 2015, 06:32:51 PM »
After praying for 7 years, it finally happened! Although it didn't happen quite the way I expected but I finally got to attend my 1st F1 Grand Prix, in my own country no less!

When I first heard the cars, I gotta admit the engine was rather disappointing as compared to what I heard near the circuit a few years back. It was made better when the cars started to zoom pass by my area. With the floodlights shining down on the cars, there is a special glow to the car that you will never be able to enjoy in a day race. Still hoping that they would bring back the V8s and pit refueling though.

Didn't spot many Singaporeans over there and I really hope more of them would be part of this wonderful experience! Glad that Ferrari have finally found their pace and even more grateful that Kimi Raikkonen is back on the podium!

Hopefully I will be part of this race again next year and maybe take some pictures to show them off!   :yahoo:  :good:

Signing Off,
Lon :tease:

Glad you enjoyed your first taste of F1 in person enough to do it again :D Not sure why Singaporeans aren't flocking to the race, though the ones I know are very much in favour of the race.

According to my friends, it doesn't make sense to pay hundreds over dollars just to see a car for a few second each lap.  :fool:

I was there working so I was lucky for there for every session! Missed quite a few parts of the race though.  :(

Being old enough to have heard many different engines from V12's to V10's the current turbo's are poor in noise even to the earlier 1.2 litre era so I'm not surprised you didn't enjoy that part. F1 races are a spectacle and each one is different I currently deciding which one maybe possible to attend next year, you see I'm even old enough to be able to spend on the GP's rather that mortgages or children!  ;)
