Garage Walk @ Singapore F1 Grand Prix & PROTON Lifestyle Event @ 1Altitude



I never thought of being one of the lucky bloggers invited for a GARAGE WALK in Singapore F1 Grand Prix! Thanks Proton Malaysia for making it possible!! Do note that we need a special VVVIP pass to get into the garage area though =)


You can read my previous post about us challenging the BATAK Machine @ Proton/Lotus Renault GP Showcase. Miss Universe Australia Scherri-Lee Biggs also made a special appearance that night. Peggy and Akiraceo are invited bloggers too~


Here's a look at the VIP pass that allow us to go for a Garage Walk


Crossing to the Paddock club and Pit Straight



We were walking just beside the F1 racing circuit. It was loud whenever the car passing by. I wish there was ear plug with me =S


Between, this is Anita Nyers from Lotus that lead us to the garage area. She is really friendly and kind =)


We need to pass the security check first before entering the Pit Zone. Super tight security yo.


It is a total different world when I entered this area. Each and every participating team has their own VIP room where you can witness the race live @ TV comfortably with food and drinks served.


Orchids were everywhere outside the VIP room



The wheels & tyres for the F1 racing cars.


Here's the Lotus Renault GP VIP room


LinkPeggy with one of the Lotus Driver form China. Know his name?


Another good looking person haha



We were warmly welcomed in the VIP room and served with cold drinks. Appreciate for the good services and treatment =D


Here's the TV showing live update for the F1 Grand Prix
V. Petrov and B. Senna at the ranking of 14 and 15



I was surprised and feeling honored because we were able to witness Lotus Pitcrew live in action. You won't believe how fast they changed the tyres in just 4 seconds until you see it with your own eyes. They are checking Lotus racing car after a long run on the circuit. Glad to see the drivers too! Teamwork is really crucial in here!


I must take a photo to remember this moment!


An attentive step to work on the tyres



After the interesting Garage Walk, we are going to party! Heading to 1Altitude @ One Raffles Place instead of Formula 1 Paddock Club ;p


1Altitude is located at the stretches across 61th to the 63th of One Raffles Place. We had our dinner at STELLAR that serve modern cuisine. Free flow of wine & champagne along with good food. All thanks to Proton Malaysia for reserving this place just for us =D


Here's the spectacular bird-eye view of the Singapore F1 Grand Prix racing circuit.


At the 63th floor you can see many Singapore landmarks with 360-degree view. Can you see the big crowd at the padang? Shakira was performing during that time =)


We are actually at the above level of Marina Bay Sands Singapore. Really spectacular view at 1Altitude =D


Guess what? I met Yasmin Hani, Jojo Struys and also Hansen Lee @ 1Altitude ;p



Mohd Hanis, a 25 year old pharmacist residing in Kuantan, won The Transporter contest organised by PROTON recently. He accompanied Malaysian celebrities Jojo Struys, Diana Danielle and Yasmin Hani to the Singapore Grand Prix 2011 in an all expense paid trip courtesy of PROTON, of which his trip included a once in a lifetime experience where he gained exclusive access to the Paddock Club and tour the Lotus Renault Grand Prix team garage as well as other fun events! It was an experience for him indeed.


Let's party =D



We took the taxi to go back home after the party and will always remember long stretches of Lotus Sport Car are parked down here. How I wish I can ride it back home =) Thanks Proton Malaysia especially for the once a life time garage walk experience and great party at 1Altitude.



The next day after the party we attended the finale of Singapore F1 Grand Prix. We are sitting at the Bay Grandstand and another spectacular night scenery of Singapore City with the F1 Circuit and big stage.


All the racing car was driving pass swiftly and I only manage to capture a few. Glad that I get myself a survival kit that contains a pair of ear-plug and rain coat. Cost me SGD 2 but worth it.


Me and Akiraceo went to the Padang before the race finish as we can't miss out Linkin Park's live performance!! No worries we didn't miss out the race because live broadcasting of the F1 race is available at the padang too! In the end, S. Vettel from Red Bull Racing Renault won the race, followed by J. Button (Vodafone McLaren Mercedes) and M. Webber (Red Bull Racing Renault).

There were accident on the race circuit and it somehow affected the performance of some F1 Driver. After all, it is a good experience for me to witness the night race besides SepangF1 Circuit Race. It is good that the race organized at night because there wasn't scorching sun burning my skin ;p


I tell you, Linkin Park live performance was super awesome!!


Here's the night scenery of Singapore City while we heading back home after the race and concert. Wanna thanks Proton Malaysia again for this wonderful journey and hope Lotus Renault GP will get better rank next year!!

If you wanna see more photos of the race and concerts, comment below and I will pop out another picture post just for you!!
