More details of Singapore plans
Details of the planned street circuit in Singapore are now beginning to leak out with the route proposed by Hermann Tilke. It will run through the parkland of the Civic District and around the Suntec City area, where there are a number of big hotels. The aim is to portray the city in as flattering a light as possible and thus the 2.5-mile track will run close to the City Hall, the Victoria Memorial Hall, the Raffles Hotel and the giant Ferris wheel called the Singapore Flyer. The key factor is that the plan seems to include the provision that it will be a night race - the first of its kind on a street circuit. This will help to fit in with the TV schedules in Europe and America and will reduce the amount of disruption for the busy city. Most of the area chosen has access from the Metro and rail networks.
