Schedule for Singapore night race confirmed

Singapore FlyerUntil now it was not very clear from the 2008 F1 Sporting Regulations how would the race weekend in Singapore look. All that we knew was the race will start at 8pm. Now FIA has confirmed the schedule for practice and qualifying sessions too:

Friday
16:00 – 17:30 Practice Session 1
20:00 – 21:30 Practice Session 2

Saturday
17:00 – 18:00 Practice Session 3
20:00 – 21:00 Qualifying Session

Sunday
20:00 Race

The news F1Wolf has been receiving from the special envoy posted there also confirm the worst fears. Besides being the street race there also other similarities with Monaco. Prices of hotels are through the roof and the same can be said about the tickets. Well, I have to speed up the contributions to my piggy bank massively.

    Pretty inevitable that the prices would shoot up i guess.

    This race will not be a boring one like Monaco.

    It’s going to be more boring! Night race eliminates the scenery like we have in Monaco. But nevertheless, a novel one I hope!

    I have a lot to say about the Singapore Race, being a resident in this country, but i’ll limit myself here. in my humble opinion this Race is gonna be the Best of the Season for 3 reasons.
    1 : First ever night race on Street circuit
    2: Singapore going all out to showcase the world
    3: Last but not least, being at the end of the calendar it could very well be the race that separates the drivers and decide on a clear winner for the 2008 championship.

    Whoever wins Singapore Race is going down in F1 history, so I predict this will be the most watched race ever…
    I will be writing a post on my blog about Singapore GP, please drop by and let me know what are your thought about it…. Is singapore overrated ?

    Here I totally agree with you, the Singapore race will be a blast. I went to Monaco last year and was just awesome. I went down to Singapore last December to walk around the track

    and I think that this race will have all that Monaco has thanks to being a street track, but the racing in SIngapore will be much better thanks to the nature of the track. Can’t wait
