Breaking news: Last call for 2013 Formula 1 PETRONAS Malaysia Grand Prix tickets.

Early Bird discount (massive 50% off) ends on Monday 31st December 2012. This is a worm worth catching.

F1 fans who still haven't bought their tickets can still pick up last minute deals for the 2013 Formula 1 PETRONAS Malaysia Grand Prix if they go to PLUS Speedway Go-Kart Circuit at USJ tomorrow, December 29 for the PETRONAS X-Track Road Show. F1 ticket booths are being set up at the event so procrastinators who have yet to get around to buying their tickets can do so while the Early Bird deal is still available.

With the substantial discount being offered, tickets will start from as low as RM33.

The discounted RM33 ticket gives fans full three-day access to natural seating (that's SIC's fancy way of saying GRASS, in case you're wondering) at the uncovered Hill stands at K2, which faces the opening three corners, or at C1, which faces Turn 8 and 9 or C3, which gives clear view of Turns 11, 12, 13 and 14.
