Free Malaysian F1 tickets on buying air tickets to Malaysia via Cleartrip/Yatra

Considering I am a Formula1 enthusiast as well, I found it hard to resist posting this one for you guys. If you choose to book tickets to fly to Malaysia on Cleartrip.com this week, you will get confirmed tickets to be at the Formula1 Malaysian Grand Prix to be held at the Sepang International Circuit on 25th March 2012.

There don’t seem to be any terms and conditions attached. All they say is you book tickets to Malaysia on the website and within 2 days you’ll receive your grandstand passes for the qualifying race day (24th March 2012) and Race Day (25th March 2012). And the promotion is not limited by numbers so everyone who buys a ticket to Malaysia gets the freebie. And while these may not be the best seats, do note that you are getting assigned seating and not walkaround passes.

The same promo has also been matched up by Yatra.com, another travel portal, however, they have a capacity limit of first 100 bookings to be able to give away the Malaysian GP tickets to.

After watching Formula1 on the television for the longest time, I could not resist heading to my first F1 race live in 2008, when Singapore got the inaugural night street race. And I went back again….

By the Singapore Marina, before the race starts...

If you’ve also watched F1 on the television, or still do, I’d advise you to go and see one in the real. Its pure adrenaline rush and great madness! I’ve grand plans to make it to all these races around the globe in this lifetime, although I have only seen Singapore GP twice over and the inaugural Indian Grand Prix last year.

 

Readers, which GP races have you all been to, and which one do you recommend I try this year (keep it closer to home!) and do share your experiences!
