The end of the Singapore Grand Prix also marks the end of a very hectic week for all in the automotive and media industry. Over the past couple of weeks, we have been swamped, with numerous events and press conferences to attend in the lead up to the big race here. While some might be sad after the night race, I'm sure more than a few others would breathe a sigh of relief at the end of the crazy schedule that we have to contend with lately. Over here at sgCarMart, we are no less busy, with the unprecedented number of events stretching our resources to the limits. And, being short of manpower, we had to sacrifice a few of these as we simply could not split ourselves into multiple parts to be at various places at the same time. Nevertheless, we endeavoured to bring our readers as much as we can, to the best of our ability. We were there, for example, to catch Michael Schumacher's first public appearance in Singapore. Then we caught up with David Coulthard, and some of the Red Bull Racing team, at the Infiniti Dynamic Drive event at Changi. We also dropped by the TechArt Party by Autovox, where Force India driver Adrian Sutil made an appearance, unfortunately too late for us to take a photo. But there were lovely Porsches around nonetheless. As the race weekend neared, the events started to ramp up, and we were lucky enough to visit The Podium Lounge at the Ritz Carlton just before the race, thanks to Aston Martin. Finally, one day before the race, we managed to catch Lotus-Renault GP's press conference, with the team consisting of Vitaly Petrov and Bruno Senna, test driver Fairuz Fauzy, team principal Eric Boullier, and Lotus chief Dany Bahar. And of course, the race itself. Obviously we didn't manage to catch every single event, because as mentioned, we only have so many of us, but still, all in all, it was an exhilarating experience. A bit like a roller coaster ride actually. Or an F1 race.
The organisers of the Singapore Grand Prix are looking for the World's Biggest F1 Fan, with prizes such as a hotel stay at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore as well as Hospitality Suite tickets to this year's race up for grabs. This is the second year that the contest has been running now, and the organisers have now opened it up to the rest of the world, instead of just Asia, so competition will be stiffer than ever. There are two contests that participants can enter in, with both offering a tough challenge as well as fantastic prizes. The first, and main, contest is called "Are You The World
