Motor Racing: S'pore F1 night race set to return this month

Motor Racing: S'pore F1 night race set to return this month

SINGAPORE: The Singapore Formula One night race returns this month for the fourth edition.


Trophy for the 2011 Formula One SingTel Singapore Grand Prix.

The Singapore Tourism Board revealed that about S$100 million is expected to be generated in tourism receipts for this edition. Last year, S$160 million was generated in tourism receipts, exceeding an earlier projection S$100 million.

The board added that about 40 per cent of the spectators at this year's race are expected to be overseas visitors. Last year, more than 240,000 fans attended the race over three days.

This year's race is set to be a hit yet again, with tickets selling fast and a stellar entertainment lineup awaiting spectators.

The Singapore Tourism Board is confident that even with the new race in India coming on board in October, the Singapore event remains attractive as in past years. One of the reasons: something new awaits fans every time at the race.

This year, the championship trophy, once again designed by Royal Selangor is getting a fresh look. The new trophy symbolises the different nationalities competing.

Cheryl Wang, Director of Brand Experience with SingTel, said: "One of the key reasons was a request from the Formula One team, and we thought about it and felt perhaps it is an opportunity for us to review the design and to make it more aligned with our SingTel Formula One theme of 'Fast is Amazing'."

Standing at 587mm, replicas of the trophy will be placed at the SingTel Roadshow in Tampines from September 12 to 18 and the Royal Selangor outlets at Clarke Quay and Marina Sands.

SingTel's current sponsorship deal with the Singapore Formula One Night Race ends next year. But in all likelihood, negotiations will be held soon to see if the partnership continues beyond 2012.

SingTel and pewter manufacturer Royal Selangor yesterday unveiled a new trophy for this month's Formula One SingTel Grand Prix.

The new design symbolises the gathering of different nationalities for the F1 race, in the spirit of fair sportsmanship.

The trophy features slim panels that represent the different nationalities of the drivers and the skyscrapers along the racetrack.

The panels are in several finishes, including satin, glossy black and brilliant. They are arranged unevenly to create a sense of dynamism.

The trophy stands 58.7cm tall, and replicas will be displayed at the SingTel roadshow at Tampines Mall from Sept 12-18, as well as Royal Selangor stores in Clarke Quay and Marina Bay Sands from today.

Miniatures of the trophy will also be on sale at all Royal Selangor stores.
