Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Friday, 3 September 2010

With less than a month to the 2010 Formula 1 Singtel Singapore Grand Prix, Pan Pacific Hotels and Resorts and Singapore GP, in conjunction with Singapore Flyer, are showcasing Singapores very own eco-friendly Formula One replica cars.

 The creations are part of the inaugural Pan Pacific Singapore GP Recycle Challenge 2010, which aims to encourage youth to tap on their creativity and build a Formula One racing car through the use of recycled materials or with an environmental theme.

This exhibition will be housed at the foyer of Singapore Flyer from 2 to 30 September and is open to the public everyday between 8:30am to 10pm, where visitors can marvel at the life-size replicas created by young talents in Singapore.

The exhibition will feature seven finalist exhibits representing the works of tertiary students from Singapore Polytechnic, Nanyang Polytechnic, Raffles Design Institute and Dunman High School.

Measuring approximately 2.5m long by 0.9m wide, the lifesize submissions showcase ingenious ways of re-using sustainable materials such as cardboard boxes, bamboo sticks, drink cartons and even agricultural waste fibrous materials which allow internal lighting to emit through it, thus resulting in a glowing replica.

An official judging event will take place on 23 September to determine the top three teams which will win prizes worth over Sin$40,000 in total, comprising coveted three-day passes to the Green Room, Pit Grandstand and Premier Walkabout tickets for 2010 Formula 1 Singtel Singapore Grand Prix courtesy of the race promoter Singapore GP, exclusive invitations to the Red Bull Racing and Scuderia Toro Rosso Paddocks and Garages to see the cars up close and meet the team drivers Sebastian Vettel, Mark Webber, Sebastien Buemi and Jaime Alguersuari, plus stays at Pan Pacific Singapore and Pan Pacific Orchard.

In addition, all visitors to this exhibition can also participate in a Guess The Winner contest to win Singapore Flyer tickets, weekend stays and dining experiences at the Pan Pacific Singapore and Pan Pacific Orchard.

This eco-friendly exhibition not only helps to generate greater public awareness of environmental issues among our local community, but also celebrates talent, innovation and teamwork, qualities of our younger generation, said Ivan Lee, Area Vice President for Pan Pacific Hotels Group. This exhibition involves both Pan Pacific Singapore and Pan Pacific Orchard hotels in one of Singapores most high profile events of the year while generating creativity and environmental awareness amongst Singapores youths.
