Singapore – F1 spotting

This is one for the F1 geeks amongst you. As the Singapore Grand Prix is a street circuit you can’t really tell where most of the track is unless you really know where to look, but up by the Singapore Flyer is the only permanent piece of the track, along with the pit garages, so I went up for a look.

The first sign was the blacked out lines near one of the roads, this is the 2nd corner of the track

Faint sign of turn 2

And as I got close to the pit garages, I knew I was in the right place

Round the other side I walked out into the pit lane and start/finish straight

Then over to the final turn

And onto the all important finish line (seperate from the start line on this track)

And some precision marking for the pit stops at Mercedes

The kerbs must rattle the teeth, bigger than I thought!

At the pit lane entry – someone got onto the brakes a bit too much last year!

Overall it was cool to have a nosey around something I wouldn’t normally get so close to. I would love to come back for a GP here though!

    Cool pics Tino. I think Jim and Linda went to see it last year (maybe the year before). Have a look on their pussbook if you get a chance.

    You’re right about those curbs, they’d in hurt in a car with basically no suspension.
