Look forward to...

Watching this world class sporting event from the best view in the city.

Getting special access to the Fullerton’s VIP champagne lounge overlooking the Grand Prix circuit.

Experiencing Singapore’s buzzing nightlife with Black Tomato’s concierge recommendations.

Heading to Orchard Road for shopping bargains galore and then to one of the hawker markets to eat authentic Asian food with the locals.

This is how street driving really should be done. If you suffer from automobile inertia we prescribe a trip to Singapore for the world class night time Grand Prix – 2008 was the biggest event hosted by Singapore of all time, and 2009 is set to be even better. It’s a unique chance to watch history in the making and reignite your love for the automobile.

You'll arrive in Singapore before the race with plenty of time to rest, relax and shop but it's unlikely you'll want to do that. In this city, renowned for its exhilarating pace and pulsating nightlife, you can anticipate that pre-race celebrations will be reaching a crescendo. A multitude of stylish bars and clubs await your arrival, and the atmosphere as the city prepares for this experience will be unforgettable. When the time comes to rest your weary head be assured we've got the perfect place for you: the Fullerton Hotel. A stay in the Fullerton - regularly voted one of Asia's best hotels - is an incredible indulgence at any time of year but promises to be even more special during Singapore's second Grand Prix as it boasts spectacular views directly over the racetrack.

The Fullerton is the place to stay for all true grand prix fans. Each guest has access to exclusive rooftop terraces where you can view the action below (with suite guests given additional access to a separate platform for a truly unparalleled vantage point); and to top it off you'll have a VIP Champagne & Cocktail Grand Prix Lounge, where you can see every second of the action up-close on screen as it unfolds on the track beside you.

Once the race ends at 11pm there's little chance you'll be in the mood for sleep; it's time to celebrate with the city's glitterati (we can point you in the right direction) or in the Fullerton's famous luxury Post Bar, equally popular with the locals. The next day will give you plenty of time to recover from all the excitement and excess, as well as the chance to catch up on sight-seeing and Singapore's many shopping options. Without tooting our own horn, we think this experience is pretty high on the must-do list if you’re looking for bragging rights this Autumn.
