Singapore Grand Prix

A Bit of Background:

Formula One’s first ever night race was held in Singapore in 2008 and has quickly established itself as one of the most popular on the calendar.

This is one of the toughest races of the year. It’s a high-speed street circuit with a bumpy surface, but it’s the oppressive heat and humid conditions that really test man and machine to the limit. Drivers can lose up to 3kg of body weight during the race, whilst dry ice is needed to keep machinery in the optimum operating windows.

What Makes Singapore Unique:

With a backdrop of the Marina Bay Sands hotel and enough lighting to put Las Vegas to shame, this is one of the most visually stunning races of the season. Sparks always fly both on and off track, as the chequered flag also begins the traditional post-race fireworks display.
