S'pore to host F1
By STI reporter, Sanjay Nanwani
IT'S confirmed - F1 is coming to Singapore.
This was announced at a joint media briefing chaired by the Trade and Industry Ministry, the Singapore Tourism Board and local tycoon Ong Beng Seng.
The Singapore Grand Prix will be held next year.
Singapore has been abuzz with talks of hosting the annual series since F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone met with hotelier Ong Beng Seng to discuss the possibility of holding a street race to be held at night.
There will be minor changes to race circuit but it will still be held in the Marina Bay and Suntec area.
Earlier reports had said the route will ply a 5km street circuit running through icons like the Esplanade and will be the world's first night race.
The route is designed by famed track designer Hermann Tilke.
On the to-do list now: Resurfacing and widening of roads along the race circuit, remodelling of kerbs and the installation of fences and crash barriers.
While there are 17 races in this year's F1 calendar, observers expect 20 next year.
Finally, my dream of watching F1 in Singapore has come true.... This is so exciting!!! I can't wait to hear the ultimate engine "music" coming from the F1 cars.. Gosh, Singapore will host the first ever night F1 race too... Haha... Do the F1 teams scout for talents here? Can i go for their trials? Speed SpeeD SPEED!!
