    Grand Prix in Singapore??

    Didn't know that there were GP in the old Singapore.... "The main touring car support race to the Singapore Grand Prix in 1967 resulted in an outright win. Foley's 1300cc Cooper 'S' is seen here leading the factory Mazda R100 specially imported from Japan and driven by works driver Katayama."

    KL City Grand Prix

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ve-2FVAxcR0 In KL now and caught this advertisement on TV. Copy cat our night racing on streets... but their tarmac can make it? Besides tourism, They wanna build talents for race mechanics and racers wannabe. Its an ASPIRATION.... Hmmmmm what do u reckon? First race in Aug 2015. BEFORE SG Grand Prix.... http://gtcitygrandprix.com/
  4. It is the annual Formula One race this weekend - for the sixth time. And if you're reading this, you would have known that the Singapore Grand Prix is the only night race in the entire race calendar. And that we will continue to have a taste of the high-octane event for the next five years (including the current). But with the race failing to keep up the passion for motorsports on our local grounds, how will things fare afterwards? The small nation has proven that it has the capacity to hold an event of such scale (and glamour). What's arguable lies in its ability to keep the passion running, and strong. Of course, being a small country has its disadvantages. For instance, we cannot simply rely on the locals to fill the seats, although that was never part of the equation. Hence, the need for more promotion on Rihanna and Justin Bieber rather than Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso. But by keeping the crowds entertained with different sort of actions (on the stage rather than neck-breaking, ear-piercing ones on the track), we do wonder if that is a good thing to do. Then again, what is the definition of a 'good' thing? All of us have different motives. The authorities want revenue and fame, the public - whatever that catches their attention, and motoring nuts - to keep the motorsports passion alive. We can go on and rant about the dying art, and how it wouldn't have made it if it went the orthodox way - pure, adrenaline-filled racing without the trackside 'distractions'. Let's, then, talk about the future. More night races to join the calender would diminish the edge we have over other races, which means we're running out of novelty. And less participation may just spell doom for the sports. Or maybe there isn't one here, for motorsports, to begin with.

So anyone knows what happening on Friday, Saturday and Sunday ? Have tickets for Friday only for now so also keen if someone wants to let go of tickets for Sunday.

  7. Formula One chief executive Bernie Ecclestone has said the US Grand Prix is on the brink of being axed from next year's calendar. In a remarkable twist to the ongoing story, it was believed Tavo Hellmund's Full Throttle Productions owned the rights to host the race, scheduled for November 18 in Austin, Texas, next year. However, Ecclestone has revealed the contract with Hellmund was recently cancelled after he was found to be in breach. This has left Ecclestone negotiating with track developers, Circuit of The Americas (COTA), who yesterday halted work on construction. COTA claimed in a statement issued that "the contract between Formula One and Circuit of The Americas has not been conveyed to Circuit of The Americas per a previously agreed upon timetable". That has angered Ecclestone who claims the reason why no contract has been issued is because he has yet to receive a guarantee or a letter of credit that he will be paid. "We've done everything we bloody well can do to make this race happen," Ecclestone said. Asked if the USGP was in danger of being dropped ahead of the final World Motor Sport Council meeting in New Delhi on December 7 when the 2012 calendar is officially ratified, Ecclestone said: "Yes, it will be, for sure, 100 per cent." COTA now has three weeks to resolve the crisis with Ecclestone, otherwise there will be no return next year to the United States after what has already been a four-year absence in a vital market for F1. Explaining how the situation has spiralled, Ecclestone said: "We had an agreement with Full Throttle Productions. "Everything was signed and sealed, but we kept putting things off like the dates, various letters of credit and things that should have been sent, but nothing ever happened. "Then these other people (COTA) came on the scene, saying that they wanted to do things, but that they had problems with Tavo. "They said they had the circuit, and that they wanted an agreement with me. I told them they had to sort out the contract with Tavo, which they said they would. "But that has gone away now because we've cancelled Tavo's contract as he was in breach. "We've waited six months for him to remedy the breach. He knows full well why we've cancelled. He's happy. "But these other people haven't got a contract. All we've asked them to do is get us a letter of credit. "We are looking for security for money they are going to have to pay us. That is via a letter of credit, normally from a bank. "If people don't have the money they find it difficult to get the letter of credit, and so we don't issue a contract." With the clock ticking on the future of the USGP, Ecclestone is now simply looking for "a guarantor", to assure him if COTA fail to pay then there is a reserve. "It's probably an old-fashioned way of going about things, needing payment, but that's business," Ecclestone said. "It's like buying a house. Before you buy that house, and before you get all the paperwork, you make sure you've got the money." When contacted, representatives for the Circuit of The Americas declined to comment. Last month's announcement of a street race in New Jersey, featuring Manhattan as a backdrop, which will take place in 2013 has further complicated matters for all concerned with the GP in Austin. That much was made clear yesterday by Texas state comptroller Susan Combs who said New Jersey had the potential to affect the economic impact of their race, adding that the annual $25m of public funding, which would effectively cover the sanctioning fee collected by Ecclestone and which is deemed crucial to the race
  8. Fernando Alonso paid tribute to the "passion" of his Ferrari team after clinching their first race win of the season at the British Grand Prix. The Spaniard dominated after taking advantage of a pit-stop problem for Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel, who finished second ahead of team-mate Mark Webber. "The big thing about Ferrari is the passion, the victory and the love for victory," said Alonso. "I knew we had enough pace to fight for the victory and it came." Early in the race the Red Bulls appeared to be making the best of the half-wet, half-dry track - and McLaren's Lewis Hamilton also fared better than Alonso, the Briton overtaking for third place on lap 15. But as the track dried out, Alonso came into his own and regained third spot from Hamilton nine laps after conceding the position. Two laps later Alonso was handed the lead, passing Vettel in the pits as the German was held up when his pit crew struggled to fit a rear tyre. Continue reading the main story All we can do is try to win every race, be aggressive and keep our strategy at the maximum Fernando Alonso "We struggled when it was wet, but we got quicker as the track dried out," said Alonso. "We stayed calm and we knew our opportunity would come later in the race. After passing Lewis Hamilton, I attacked the Red Bulls. "I saw the problem in the pit stop with Sebastian and we were in the lead at that moment, but who knows what might have happened after that. "I had to keep the car on the track and away from the grass, to not make any mistakes." Before Sunday's race at Silverstone, Alonso drove the car that, in 1951, took Jose Froilan Gonzalez to Ferrari's first British Grand Prix victory. "The British Grand Prix is a special event for every driver competing in F1, we know the history of this race, a special grand prix and I had the privilege to drive the Froilan car that was the first Ferrari win in F1," said the Spaniard. "Today we won in the same circuit with the same passion, the same group of people who work for this fantastic team." Alonso's victory means he leapfrogs McLaren pair Hamilton and Jenson Button to go third in the drivers' championship. While conceding the 93-point gap to leader Vettel remains a distant target, Alonso vowed not to give up the fight. "From now on we will challenge Red Bull all the way," he said. "All we can do is try to win every race, be aggressive and keep our strategy at the maximum."

    1966 Singapore Grand Prix

  12. Formula One world champion Jenson Button timed his pitstop to perfection to chalk up his first win for McLaren in a rain-affected and entertaining Australian Grand Prix on Sunday. The Briton, a winner in Melbourne with Brawn GP last year, took the lead when Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel, starting on pole position, was pitched into the gravel mid-race by a brake failure. "It feels so good ... Guys, amazing job, I think we got that pitstop pretty much perfect," Button, who went for an early change to slicks that proved crucial, shouted over the team radio after beating Renault's Robert Kubica by 12.034 seconds. "It was the right time. Fantastic job, this is a great way to start the year." Poland's Kubica was comfortably clear of Ferrari's Brazilian Felipe Massa, who nosed out Spanish team mate Fernando Alonso for third. Seven times world champion Michael Schumacher finished 10th for Mercedes after being effectively ruled out of the running at the first corner. Button's left front tyre hit Alonso's right at the first turn, causing the Spaniard to spin and collide with Schumacher and break the Mercedes' front wing. Both then had to fight back from the rear. Only 14 cars finished the race as intermittent showers made tyre selection, and the timing of pitstops, a key factor on the bumpy street circuit. The safety car made an early appearance when BMW Sauber's Japanese driver Kamui Kobayashi rebounded off a barrier at turn six on the first lap, crashing into Williams's German driver Nico Hulkenberg. The incident also forced Toro Rosso's Sebastien Buemi out. Double world champion Alonso, who won on his Ferrari debut in Bahrain last week, stayed top of the standings after two races with 37 points, in front of Massa who has 33. Button's victory allowed him to claw back to 31 in the championship race and allowed McLaren to close to 54 points, second behind Ferrari on 70 in the constructors' standings.

"The track is very bumpy, and it takes great reflexes and skill to have control of the car in any given situation, the tight corners posing some serious problems for the speeding machines..." and making all more interesting is the anti clockwise of the track, which the drivers had to go thru 71 laps... not finished on the interesting bits as there are forecast of rain too! with me going the the kart track early morning tomorrow i reckon i had better rest in the afternoon when i reached home else i will only see the start of the race

    F1 Grand Prix: Probe underway . . .

    Motor racing-F1 governing body opens race probe SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, Belgium, Aug 30 - Formula One's governing body has opened an investigation into alleged events at a past grand prix, the International Automobile Federation said on Sunday. "The FIA can confirm an investigation is under way regarding alleged incidents at a previous Formula One world championship event," said a spokeswoman at the Belgian Grand Prix. No details were given about which race was being investigated and sources close to the governing body refused to divulge any details. Both the autosport.com and grandprix.com websites referred however to last year's Singapore Grand Prix won by Renault's Fernando Alonso. The double world champion won the sport's first floodlit race after Brazilian team mate Nelson Piquet, who has since parted from the team, crashed and brought out the safety car. Tsk tsk tsk . . . . I did mention something to this effect to my colleagues but they had laughed me off. That crash was like "ochestrated" Let's see the outcome of the investigation

    Turkish Grand Prix F1

    it's a F1 weekend once again.... dun most of us know it already when we heard of "VPower going at the price of 98" AGAIN this week, the 'circus' is at Istanbul Park Circuit. it is slightly over 5km in length, but the most tricky bit of this track is that it is of anti clockwise. driver will have to prepare carefully for this weekend, else necks will suffer immensely. also "the track is best known for the challenge presented by Turn Eight, a triple-apex left-hander that seems to go on and on. it is taken around 250 km/h generates arguably the highest G-forces drivers see over the season. " however, the past few weeks i had been really disappointed with the F1 circus. it is really a circus... 1stly, we did not see more racing than last year with all the car design changes, did we? then again, i reserve my judgment on that, as most cars are still trying to match Brawn's clever deign. once, teams do catch up, i really do hope there are really more true blooded racing from all teams. 2nd, is there really going to be a F1 2010 season? i just can't believe at a time when the sports shld be doing everything it can to promote itself, it just turn ard and shot itself in both feet. one foot for the ugly cars, and another for all the politics involving cost cutting and what have you. Max Mosley has even came out and said this:

    Shanghai F1 Grand Prix

    i know, i know, it's not even under way however i believe it will be a very very interesting race in Shanghai, China firstly, Massa will be just behind Hamilton on the starting grid. how will it be of Lewis's start this time round? how will Alonso fared with his Renault starting from fourth? will the 2 time champion make the championship more interesting in its final races? Nick Heidfeld is now 9th after being demoted from 5th. looking on during Q3, i do not understand why he overtook DC during his in lap (he pitted in after he overtook DC) while DC is on his fast qualifying lap... then again, if NH is indeed on his in lap and catches up with DC we may have to ask "is DC driving that Slow"?? ok, what i want to say next can be seen to be of a Pro-LH observation but the fact remain as it is during the qualifying. and most certainly it's not in response to any anti LH threads here ... during Q3, LH 1st run laptime put him 5th, with about 0.5 or so seconds from Kimi at P1. it seems Kimi is waking or already woken up from his slumber form. then LH pitted in for new tyres for his second & final run, checked with his engineer on where he is good (to maintain) and where he is losing time which are sector 2 and 3. and amazingly, he managed to digest this info and put in a stunning lap to claim pole position ahead of Kimi by 0.3 sec it is always easy to overdrive in the sectors you are being told u are slower, and then have a even slower lap time. and, personally, to me qualifying is a more difficult task for drivers. because during then, there are no other cars for you to aim and overtake, u cannot follow or analyze your opponents lines or baking points. in qualifying, u just go. go as fast as possible. but driving over the limit is a problem. being smooth is the solution. but where to be on the limit and where to be smooth is another level of driving all together. all in all, i hope the race will not put me into my afternoon nap mode. it should not be esp when all the chips are almost all down, and a SMALL chance of rain. http://www.formula1.com/news/headlines/2008/10/8536.html 1.

  21. http://sg.news.yahoo.com/afp/20081012/tts-...pn-c1b2fc3.html FUJI SPEEDWAY, Japan (AFP) - - Fernando Alonso took full advantage of others' mistakes and misfortunes to claim his second successive victory on Sunday when he won the Japanese Grand Prix. The Spaniard made the most of incidents and errors that wrecked the day for championship contenders Lewis Hamilton and Felipe Massa as he steered his Renault to the 21st win of his career, following his victory in Singapore. He came home 5.2 seconds clear of second placed Pole Robert Kubica of BMW Sauber with defending drivers champion Finn Kimi Raikkonen third for Ferrari. Brazil's Nelson Piquet was fourth in the second Renault ahead of Italian Jarno Trulli of Toyota and the two Toro Rossos of Frenchman Sebastien Bourdais and German Sebastian Vettel. Hamilton failed to score a point for McLaren Mercedes after a drama-filled afternoon following a poor start from pole position and some impetuous moves. He eventually finished 12th. But his main title rival Brazilian Felipe Massa of Ferrari also struggled through collisions, errors and penalties on his way to finishing eighth to claim a single point. This reduced Hamilton's lead to six points with two races remaining in China and Brazil. Hamilton's team-mate Finn Heikki Kovalainen retired with a blown engine in the early stages. In the constructors' championship, Ferrari jumped back into the lead with a six points cushion over McLaren. When the lights went out, the start produced chaotic drama as Hamilton made a slow getaway and struggled to keep up with Raikkonen who pulled clear to lead as they surged towards the first corner. Hamilton responded immediately by switching to the inside and attempting to pass the Finn under braking, but he was unable to make the corner and went off across the run-off area. In the packed field behind him, there were bumps and collisions that led to Briton David Coulthard in his Red Bull and Japan's Kazuki Nakajima in a Williams going off, the Scot crashing heavily into the barriers. Hamilton's rush inside Raikkonen had taken the Finn off the track with him and this led to a stewards' investigation that resulted in a drive-through penalty for the championship leader. As the field settled, Kubica was leading ahead of Alonso before further incidents arrived on lap two when Hamilton, in sixth, attacked and passed Massa who ran off the track and then collided with the Englishman's McLaren. Massa's Ferrari spun Hamilton's car to a halt and left him stranded as the field streamed through with the Briton forced to wait and rejoin last with wrecked tyres. Like Hamilton, Massa's actions were investigated and the stewards gave him a drive-through penalty. The incident also caused Hamilton to pit immediately for tyres. As all this took place, the race unfolded with Kubica leading Alonso towards the first pit stops when the Spaniard took control. Alonso delivered a rapid burst to establish his position before he pitted and once the lead had been passed to Trulli and then Bourdais, it was Piquet out in front. On lap 28, Piquet finally made his first stop and Alonso regained the lead with a 7.8 seconds advantage. By lap 30, Alonso was pulling clear and Massa was 12th and Hamilton 14th. After his impetuous start, Hamilton was a long way from scoring any points and his only consolation was that Massa also struggled, although the Brazilian worked his way through the field to earn a valuable point.

  23. i think the road there need resurfacing, i saw some parts the paint gone liao
  24. this is quite interesting. i wonder if we may see a Red Flag if it rain. -------------- F1's driver safety union, the Grand Prix Drivers' Association, is concerned about the sport's forthcoming inaugural night race. The floodlit event, to be held on the streets of Singapore at the end of next month, will take place without any prior pre-race testing under lights. The official timetable for the weekend's action even affords precious little evening practice for the drivers, and despite speculation and reports of amendments, this has never been officially confirmed. "At the moment we still don't know what the schedule of the weekend will be," Toyota driver and GPDA stalwart Jarno Trulli told reporters at Valencia at the weekend. He said a major concern is the combination of the lights, the concrete-lined street circuit, and the unknown quantity of how rain might further complicate their visibility. "We are a little bit concerned," the Italian admitted. "We go there, we haven't tested, we don't have any idea. It's going to be a night race, it's going to be the rainy season, so it's not exactly what you really want from a safety point of view." "It doesn't look comfortable so far." Trulli said there is no point liaising with MotoGP riders about the situation, following the premier two-wheeled category's inaugural night race in Qatar earlier this year. "Because riding a bike is different to driving a car. And they were racing on a circuit and we are racing on a street circuit. They had run-off and we have walls," Trulli added. http://en.f1-live.com/f1/en

In nine months, what's now a muddy patch of land at the Marina Promenade will be transformed into a sleek Pit Building for the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix. Trade and Industry Minister Mr Lim Hng Kiang, who graced Friday's groundbreaking said the event marks an important milestone. He noted that although the F1 Singapore Grand Prix is set to flag off in a year's time, the infrastructure will have to be up in about nine months. "But Singapore is a City of Possibilities, so I have full confidence we will be ready for the 28 September race date." According to Mr Lim Neo Chian, Deputy Chairman and Chief Executive of the Singapore Tourism Board, the Pit Building will be completed by the end of May next year, which is a construction industry record. The Pit Building, a key element in the infrastructure of the F1 Singapore Grand Prix, will house the race control facilities, team garages, hospitality lounges for about 4,000 guests, a Media Centre and other facilities.
