Back From … Singapore

I took a short break from everything, including posting on the blog :-) and went to check out what is happening in Singapore with the F1 and how the track is going to look.

3D Aerial View Of The Singapore F1 Track – Video

Here is an interesting “helicopter view” of the Singapore F1 track:

The Singapore’s Geo Mash Up Community website also has a ‘drive through the race’ animation (requires Google Earth). The screenshot looks very interesting, but unfortunately I kept getting different error messages from Google Earth and could not get that one working. If some does, let me know!

I will be in Singapore this weekend and will try to bring some photos of the future F1 track. Stay tuned !

Formula 1 – Some Positive Overtaking Signals

Two bits of information caught my eye today. The news about the beginning of the works on the Singapore F1 track and the information about teams taking some steps towards overtaking.
First a quote from Singapore Tourist Board:

The 5.05km long street circuit offers a number of overtaking opportunities, fast turns and technically challenging sections for F1 race drivers, which, in turn, will present viewers with compelling race action to keep them on the edge of their seats.

Formula 1 – Singapore GP to be confirmed tomorrow ?

As they write over at, the Singapore race looks like done deal and “According to local newspapers in Singapore the Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix will be announced this Friday by the organisers of the race.” Unfortunately I did not find any news on any online Singapore news sites… So, let’s see what happens or does not happen on Friday.

Formula 1 – Webber to test drive Singapore F1 track

Australian Red Bull driver Mark Webber will take to the streets of Singapore this weekend for a trial run of the city-state’s proposed Formula One race, the Straits Times reported on Tuesday. Singapore is in talks with Formula One over the hosting of a street circuit grand prix, which may be held at night, under floodlights — a first for the sport. The report said Webber would drive a Porsche 911 GT3 for Saturday’s test run “within the legal speed limit”. “We didn’t have enough time to get the clearance for a high-speed run,” Jyn Wee, Red Bull’s brand manager in Singapore, was quoted as saying. The GT3 has a top speed in excess of 300 kph and can go from 0-100 kph in less than five seconds.
