2008 Formula One Singtel Singapore Grand Prix

Singapore managed to convince Formula One management, despite strong objection from Malaysia, to organize the first street race in Asia. Furthermore, this event is to be held at night.

As the event is just around the corner i.e. 26 - 28 September 2008, preparation is being drumed up at the Marina Bay Street Circuit. It is unprecedented as nearly 1,500projectors will be used to illuminate the entire track of the night race. See photo on the preparation work.

The distance of the street circuit is 5.067 km. It offers multiple overtaking opportunities to the racers.

This Formula One Grand Prix will definitely boost Singapore tourist industry. Formula One fans from all over the world will flock in during the event. Singapore has prepared other events beside Formula One to tap this great opportunity. There will be Singapore Biennale, Bulgari Collection, Singapore River Festival, Singapore Motor Show, Diana Krall Live In Concert from 20 September to 5 October 2008.
