Singapore Grand Prix night race

A guide to spectating from the Promenade Grandstand at the Singapore F1.

This grandstand was new for the 2023 Singapore Grand Prix and it offers fans a slightly different perspective of the racing action towards the end of the circuit.

This guide includes examples of the view, my tips on getting the best seats and information on buying tickets.

Contents

Promenade Grandstand location

The Promenade Grandstand at the Singapore F1 is on the outside (right-hand side) of the Singapore GP track layout between turns 17 and 18.

Turn 18 is the penultimate corner on the circuit and leads on to the start / finish straight.

The Promenade Grandstand is almost directly opposite the Singapore Flyer, one of the largest observation wheels in the world, which is on the other side of the track.

Zone

The Promenade Grandstand at the Singapore F1 is located in Zone 1 of the Marina Bay circuit park.

Grandstand details

Cover

The Promenade Grandstand at the Singapore GP is not covered. It’s completely exposed to the elements. 

It often rains at the Singapore GP so make sure you wear suitable clothing; see my Singapore GP dress code guide for more info.

Seats

The seats are individual chairs with folding seat bases.

TV screens

There is one TV screen visible from this grandstand, located on the other side of the circuit directly opposite the stand.

Promenade Grandstand Tickets

Tickets for the Promenade Grandstand can be purchased through the official Singapore GP website. 

  • A 3-day ticket for the 2024 Singapore Grand Prix in the Promenade Grandstand costs S$1,188.
  • Tickets include free rides on the Singapore Flyer
  • Tickets include access to all Zones (1, 2, 3 & 4) around the circuit. Same a Premier Walkabout ticket with the addition of reserved seats in this grandstand all weekend.
  • The only cheaper grandstands that give you the same all-zone access are the Raffles and Republic grandstands
  • Tickets include access to all of the Singapore GP concerts across the weekend

See my guide to Singapore F1 tickets for more information and alternative places to purchase if they’re sold out on the official site.

Promenade Grandstand seating plan

Below is the seating plan for the Promenade Grandstand at the Singapore Grand Prix.

As the seating plan shows the grandstand is split in to four sections; A1, A2, A3 and A4.

It’s not a tall grandstand as it’s only four rows deep. Row 1 is the front and Row 4 is the back. It’s not very steeply tiered but the back row is still a little higher than the front.

Choosing your seats

When booking tickets through the official Singapore GP website, you can only select your preferred block of the grandstand.

You cannot select your specific row or seats within that block. Once you’ve selected your block you can head to your shopping cart and it will show you which seats you’ve been assigned.

If you’re not happy you can re-start the process, select some more tickets and see which ones you’re assigned.

Then you can remove the ones you don’t want from your shopping cart and keep the ones you do.

Promenade Grandstand view

From the Promenade Grandstand you can see the cars exiting Turn 17 to your left and entering Turn 18 to your right.

The map below shows this area of track highlighted in green.

The further right you sit in the stand (higher block numbers) the more you can see of Turn 18. The further left you sit (lower block numbers) the more you can see of the exit of Turn 17.

Unfortunately there are some palm trees directly to the right of the stand that block your view of Turn 18 slightly, as the image below shows. The higher up and further to the right you sit (row 4 block A4, for example), the more of an obstruction the palms will become.

The video below was filmed from Row 1, the front row of the Promenade Grandstand. As it shows, it’s right up against the fence.

Sitting in the front row closest to the fence means that you can see less of the cars when you’re looking to your extreme left or right as the fence becomes almost opaque as you look along it.

Sitting in the back row would give an improved view.

Is the Promenade Grandstand a good place to sit?

Not a lot of action happens on this part of the track other than cars accelerating past at full throttle or entering the pit lane.

You’re unlikely to see any overtaking here as there’s no braking zone in sight, and it’s not one of the Singapore DRS zones.

The grandstand is also a bit of walk from some of the main entertainment areas in Zone 1 which are behind Turn 1.

For this price I’d consider the Bayfront Grandstand which is on the outside of Turns 16 and 17. There you can see the cars for longer as they’re going slower, have a better field of view and can actually see two corners.

Nearest entrance & MRT station

The nearest spectator entrance is through gate 8. This is around a 10 minute walk away from the grandstand.

The nearest MRT station is the Bayfront Station (CE1 / DT16) which is a 400 metre walk away from the entrance.

See my guide to the Singapore GP entrances & MRT stations for more information.
