Singapore – Track and Stands
The Singapore Grand Prix is Formula One racing’s original night race, staged on an exciting 5.073-kilometre (3.152-mile) street track in the heart of this colourful and cosmopolitan city. The race is floodlit, and the bright lights of the city’s financial centre in the background give the race a unique atmosphere.
“It’s a very physical circuit – more than I expected, actually,” says world champion Lewis Hamilton. “You need to put a lot of work into the car to get a good lap – I’d say it requires double the energy of Monaco over a single lap. One lap around here is like two laps of Monaco!”
“The visibility is great and you don’t really feel you are driving at night with all the lights on the track,” adds 2007 champion Kimi Raikkonen.
The track makes use of two bridges across the harbour, the famous Padang Park and its permanent pits complex is built alongside the ‘Singapore Flyer’, the city state’s answer to the London Eye Ferris wheel.
At just 684 square kilometres (264 square miles), Singapore is the smallest country in South East Asia. Singapore’s Changi Airport, 20 kilometres east of the city, is an extremely impressive facility. Its 160 shops and 80 restaurants make it a delight for passengers, who can fly to virtually anywhere in the world. There are 185 destinations from Changi, in 58 countries.
The quickest way from the airport into the city is via the Modern Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) rail system. Trains leave every 12 minutes and the journey time into City Hall Station is just 27 minutes.
With the MRT at your disposal, as well as endless bus services and taxis, you don’t need to hire a car in Singapore. And when you can’t get any further by public transport, go by foot.
If you’re a fan of Far Eastern metropolitan life, you’ll love Singapore. There are two renowned shopping/entertainment malls, the Marina Square and Sentosa Island. When you’ve had enough of shopping or watching movies, you can head to the Como Shambhala Spa, where some of the oldest methods of spiritual and physical growth are practised.
Eating out is also a delight, with food to suit every palette. For the most eclectic mix of restaurants, head to the Dempsey Road enclave; it used to be known for its antique teak furniture, but the majority of those shops now serve food and drink. The Wine Company (Block 14-3 Dempsey Road) specialise in wine and pizzas, Samy’s Restaurant (25 Dempsey Road) is famed for its fish-head curry, while the Dempsey Hut (130E Minden Road) offers an outdoor bar in which to enjoy the balmy tropical weather.
Singapore is a clean city; in fact it’s so spotless that you can’t buy chewing gum, just in case the temptation to litter the streets is too great. While in Singapore, you’d do well to respect each of the Republic’s five ideals, as depicted on their national flag: democracy, peace, equality, justice and progress.
In 2008 Singapore had the honour of hosting the first night-time event in Formula One history. The inaugural Singapore Grand Prix proved a huge hit, staged on a new street circuit, with the city’s famous skyline providing a truly spectacular backdrop.
The race was announced in May 2007 following the agreement of a five-year deal between Formula One Management CEO Bernie Ecclestone, Singapore entrepreneur Mr Ong Beng Seng, and the Singapore Tourism Board.It instantly established itself as one of the most dramatic and atmospheric races on the calendar. The timing of the event also means it can be broadcast at a convenient time for European television audiences as well as thrilling local fans.
Using public roads around the Marina Bay area, the circuit utilises powerful lighting systems to replicate daylight conditions and the most stringent safety protocols ensure driver and spectator safety.
Grandstand seating and hospitality areas lining the track can accommodate more than 80,000 spectators, while a permanent pit area with deluxe paddock facilities is located adjacent to the Singapore Flyer complex.
The event is more than just a motor race. “We envision it to be a national festival, and one that presents many opportunities for participation for everyone, both visitors and Singaporeans alike,” said Singapore’s Minister of State for Trade and Industry, Mr S Iswaran.
