The 12th edition of Grand Prix Season Singapore (GPSS) returns from September 13 to 22 this year with exclusive race-themed lifestyle experiences that extend beyond the track.
For the first time, GPSS will include precinct parties at four locations in Singapore – Orchard Road, Clarke Quay, Kampong Glam and Jewel Changi Airport. Each precinct party will feature a curated line-up of offerings to give both locals and visitors the opportunity to experience the unique characteristics of each location.Visitors looking to soak up some local music can head to the Kampong Glam precinct to catch a showdown between Singapore’s best buskers in the Glam Voice! competition. Families can hop over to Jewel Changi Airport to indulge in kid-friendly activities that include virtual reality and remote-control racing games.
Over at Orchard Road, visitors can enjoy some Singaporean retail and dining experiences, as well as watch the shopping belt come alive with live performances on the rooftop of Design Orchard. Nightlife seekers can get their fix from an array of F1 after-parties at Clarke Quay, with many bars and clubs offering themed parties and attractive promotions.
All precinct parties will feature race-themed programming, from the chance to experience what it’s like to be an F1 race mechanic in the Red Bull Pit Stop Challenge or a McLaren race car driver in a racing simulator game, to bringing the family for a joy ride and carnival at BMWFestSG, and taking a go-kart for a spin in the heart of the city.
This year, race ticket holders can also look forward to in-circuit concert headliners such as Swedish House Mafia, Muse, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Fatboy Slim and Gwen Stefani, as well as fringe acts and performances. They are also entitled to special GPSS discounts and offers at various participating attractions, museums, dining and retail outlets, and more.
Other highlights of this year’s GPSS include a pop-up Go-Kart track in the Grange Road car park, racing simulators at the Gallery of Speed along Orchard Road and an e-sports racing simulator experience within Zouk.
Guests can also get up close and personal with three F1 world champions at the Legends Unite gala dinner held at The Capitol Kempinski Hotel.
