Singapore Grand Prix


When you think of Singapore, you think of beautiful architecture, discipline and order, a clean magnificent city with British infrastructure and an Asian work ethic. But what do they know about Formula One, or motor racing in general for that matter? Well, there is a motor sport history dating from 1961, when Singapore organized the Orient Year Grand Prix on the Thomson Road Circuit followed by the Malaysian Grand Prix in 1962. Singapore became independent of Malaysia in 1965 so it became the Singapore Grand Prix with cars under the Formule Libre rules, which means race what you brought. The event was always dangerous with eleven fatalities over 13 years; it was discontinued in 1973 as cars kept getting faster and faster.

Then Bernie Ecclestone, the Singapore Tourism Board with Sponsors Sing Tel and later Singapore Airlines made the race possible. The first Formula One race was a sellout. The contract runs until 2017 so no doubt they will negotiate a further extension as the race is such a success. It is not a classic track, but the total excitement of the location and the fact the race takes place at night makes it an incredible event. Many call it the Monaco of Asia, and Formula 1 loves its ability and magnetism to bring the large corporations from the Asian market.

The Marina Bay Street Circuit was constructed with lighting that gives practically day light visibility and highlights F1 colors better than day light. It is infamous for the "Flav move," to get his team to win. He had Nelson Piquet Jnr purposely crash his car so that Fernando Alonso could pit before the safety car came out, the rest of the field pitted on the following lap under yellow leaving Fernando, who knew nothing about the "Flav Move" to win. Flavio Briatori is now banned for life by the FIA.

With the night race the bars and restaurants come into their own as the F1 circus is still on European time and everyone goes to bed in the early morning, or maybe not at all. Racing has been exciting with five different makes of cars taking the honor of winning. It is all a wonderful show and is party central for the teams and spectators alike.

Singapore like many large cities offers plenty of accommodations, but it is the quality and service of the hotels that takes your breath away

Mandarin Oriental Singapore

The Mandarin Oriental is located at the heart of Marina Bay, Singapore`s most exciting dining and entertainment district and minutes from turns 16 and 17. Each guestroom offers marvelous views with a fresh contemporary feel. Amenities include wireless internet access, satellite and cable TV, movie-on-demand (fee), surround sound system, offering CD and DVD options, audio for iPod and MP3 players, a bathtub and a separate glass enclosed shower, tea and coffee making facilities and a daily selection of local and international newspapers.

Singapore


The race takes place close to your hotels so the entertainment is all around you. There were over 50 entertainers that took the stage at last year`s race, so it is much more than a race. Star`s such as in 2015 Bon Jovi, Maroon 5, Pharrell Williams, and Spandau Ballet. In 2014 they brought in Robbie Williams, John Legend, Pet Shop Boys and Jennifer Lopez. In 2013 there was Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Tom Jones, and Bob Geldof on stage.

Restaurants offer all sorts of delicacies and delights, and why not try a genuine Singapore Gin Sling Cocktail at Raffles. If you ask the Singaporeans, they would recommend the Tiong Bahruined district, where the streets are lined with row after row of quaint art-deco shop-houses, the residential estate is jam-packed with some of the city`s hottest food and lifestyle establishments,

The Republic of Singapore has gone from race riots and malnutrition fifty years ago, to one of the most modern economies in the World. It is termed a Global City: like New York, London, or Tokyo, it is the easiest city to do business with according to the World Bank, the 2nd most competitive country, third largest foreign exchange, their business credentials are without question.

Singapore`s population enjoys a high standard of living and ninety percent own their own home. Last year the government had a 78% approval rating and has been in power for over fifty years. There is very little corruption and business is always ethical.

Singapore`s cityscape makes you gasp with wonder, squeaky clean streets and wonderful architecture. No race or religious problems, very little crime, wealth and harmony, and its greening policy that has covered the island with tropical flora, parks and gardens, a true Republic of Shangri-La you may say. It is called the "Singapore Model"; the world`s politicians would do well to follow suit.
