Singapore Grand Prix
In 2008 Singapore had the honour of hosting the first night-time event in Formula One history. Staged on a new street circuit, with the city's legendary skyline provided a truly magnificent backdrop.
The race was announced in May 2007 following the agreement of a five-year deal between Formula One Management CEO Bernie Ecclestone and the Singapore Tourism Board. It is no doubt one of the most dramatic and atmospheric races on the Formula 1 calendar. The event is broadcast at a convenient time for European television audiences.
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.
