I didnt see a thread for the upcoming F1 Turkish GP in October 2021.
I am going to see the race, located in Gold 4 Open Air.
We are planning to stay in Istanbul, near Taksim Square.
Is anyone else here coming to GP?25th September 2021, 1:13 at 1:13 am #463088
Hi Vene. I’m also coming to the Turkish GP and also staying near Taksim Square.
I don’t know if there will be any shuttle buses to arrive directly to the track. Some people told me that due to heavy traffic it could take up to 3 hours.
It seems the best way to arrive is taking a bus to Sabiha Gokcen Airport and a taxi to the track (15 min)29th September 2021, 17:04 at 5:04 pm #463485
Okay, great! Same plans then. The intercitypark posts some info in their Instagram, but ofc all the posts are in Turkish :)
You are gonna take the bus from Taksim to the Airport and the taxi? And the same way back I assume.
In which grandstand are u in?2nd October 2021, 13:46 at 1:46 pm #463558
Hello, I am attending the GP too. Glad to see some discussions on this, I’m not from turkey so quite unaware where to stay and how to get there. I’ll take a look at the route suggested above..
Im in Silver 8 (turn 12)
Maybe it would be better for us to travel together xD2nd October 2021, 20:16 at 8:16 pm #463560
Hahhah maybe it would! Im from Finland :) so not local either.
Where have you bought the tickets? I bought them from official f1 ticket store, but havent received the e-tickets yet, have you?2nd October 2021, 22:00 at 10:00 pm #463561
I bought the tickets from the website of the track. It’s called biletix. I received them immediately via email.
Actually this week the organisation announced how to get to the track. There will be a bus from different metro stations. Coming from Taksim the best choice is to take Marmaray and then the bus at Pendik Yth Station wich goes directly to F1. I don’t know how to attach photos of it. Check on the Istanbul Park Twitter account
I’m coming from Spain by the way, neither local2nd October 2021, 22:13 at 10:13 pm #463562
Oh I forgot, I’ll be in turn 8!
I have a huge dilemma about whether to skip or not Friday practice. I also want to sightseeing Istanbul
It’s the first time I’m attending to a GP so I don’t really know. What do you think?3rd October 2021, 8:26 at 8:26 am #463566
Ah well small world!! I’m from India, but I’m currently studying at Aalto University haha! I’m flying down from Helsinki on Friday evening, so I’ll miss Friday practice :/
I’ve reserved Monday for some sight seeing, but yes I’ve read that if you attend all three days that’s about 15 hours of traveling..
I haven’t got my e-ticket either.
Hey Nahuel! Awesome, maybe I’ll see you there. Will let u know when I get my seat number and all that. Thanks for the tip on the routes!3rd October 2021, 11:28 at 11:28 am #463567
Hahhah nice Malhotra! I live in Helsinki :) we fly early Thursday morning and leave Monday.
What does your f1 ticket account say
about the ticket?3rd October 2021, 16:32 at 4:32 pm #463568
great, if you attend on Friday, pls let us know how you went about getting there, shuttle tickets and anything u feel is relevant :)
The website just shows my orders and that it is accepted. I wrote to the customer service but haven’t got a response yet :/3rd October 2021, 16:33 at 4:33 pm #463569
Also this is the first time i’m attending a GP, so I really have no idea what to expect and how to be prepared!4th October 2021, 5:50 at 5:50 am #463578
Hi Malholtra. I think we’re at different locations, I’ll be at turn 8 and you mentioned turn 12.
As I said before, I bought the tickets from the official website of Istanbul Park, Biletix which is Ticketmaster Turkey, and I already have my ticket, the billing and I could pick my seat.
Where did you guys bought it? Maybe it wasn’t the official website. I hope it isn’t a scam4th October 2021, 8:01 at 8:01 am #463579
I contacted customer service as well, still no response. I bought tickets from the official store, tickets.formula1.com, so dont believe its a scam…
I try to call them later today.
I will try to have the time to inform you Malhotra about the transportation etc, if l have wifi etc enough at the hotel!
Please tell if you get the tickets or response from the store!4th October 2021, 13:09 at 1:09 pm #463584
I managed to get through to them, they said tickets will be sent by tonight or tomorrow morning latest!4th October 2021, 17:20 at 5:20 pm #463683
Me too, they told that we receive the tickets today, and we did! Great :)
They told that they are gonna send some ”instruction” but haven received any
