F1 Malaysian Grand Prix

The tickets are pricy but are still considered cheap compared to the ticket prices for races in Europe. The grand stand at the start-finish straight is already sold-out but there are still tickets available for all other seats ranging from RM700 to RM1800. The cheapest way to experience the race or the weekend (all tickets are valid from friday to sunday) is get a hillstand ticket (RM80), but make sure you bring an umbrella to protect yourself from the sun or the very likely tropical rain.
