Singapore’s city streets will once again play host to the sound of screaming speed demons come 24-26 September, when the 2010 Formula 1 Singtel Singapore Grand Prix roars back for its third year.

Singapore held its inaugural race in 2008 with much fanfare, with race supremo Bernie Ecclestone describing it as F1’s “jewel in the crown”.

To date, over 190,000 spectators have watched both races live, of which more than 30% comprised foreign visitors. Total viewership of the Singapore race over the same period exceeded 195 million. The two races have also contributed significantly to Singapore’s tourism receipts, with over Sin$260 million in tourism receipts generated.

 Despite the many new additions to the F1 global race calendar and the changes in race schedules in some circuits, the Singapore race remains the only night race in the entire F1 season and continues to be Asia’s only street circuit.

 Under this year’s Grand Prix Season Singapore, key entertainment highlights have been closely integrated with the race and will be held in the heart of the Marina Bay circuit. Taking centre-stage at the Padang will be the likes of Mariah Carey, Missy Elliot, Daughtry and Adam Lambert. They will headline over 300 performers transforming the race circuit into yet another high octane extravaganza of music and excitement.

Held from 17 to 26 September 2010, Grand Prix Season Singapore 2010 will also present various lifestyle offerings including exciting parties, art exhibitions, new retail and dining experiences.

“With the Singapore race just around the corner, preparations have stepped up to ensure this year’s event will be the best yet. With the newly-launched Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort and its unique SkyPark, Singapore’s skyline juxtaposed against the lighting of the race circuit will be even more spectacular,” said Mr Justin Chew, Singapore Tourism Baord’s Executive Director for Hospitality, F1 & Sports. “Visitors can also visit the numerous new shopping venues and our other Integrated Resort - Resorts World Sentosa - with its many rides and attractions at Universal Studios.”
