My First Experience in 2012 F1 Singtel Singapore Grand Prix


Quote of the Day:

“The best part of one’s life is the working part, the creative part. Believe me, I love to succeed… However, the real spiritual and emotional excitement is in the doing.”

First of all, thanks for Anonymous Production to give me the chance to participate in the F1 Paddock Interactive Entrance project. I am not a F1 fans but it is really excited if you were there, hearing the sound of the shrill racing engine, following the live update of the racing and enjoy the fun environment!

We park at Suntech and walk over to the location as this is the nearest place to get there. After finish scanning the pass, we walk up to the Paddock Club area.

Welcome to the 2012 F1 Singtel Singapore Grand Prix, the Paddock Club entrance. Love the idea of the interactive staircase of F1 Singtel Grid Girls from Anonymous Production at the entrance. But the only imperfection is we can’t include the voice in the interactive media due to the F1 racing sound, if not it will be even more interesting and interacting!

After finish working and monitoring the interactive media, we have a walk at the Paddock Club Grandstand.

The entrance access at the grandstand ground floor. Nothing much but you can stand next to the racing circuit.

This is the view from the Paddock Grandstand at the top floor. It’s very crowded with people standing and sitting. You can see the racing cars pass by very clearly with free flow beer and hard liquor served! Nice!
