What you need to know about Singapore GP Circuit image

The Singapore Grand Prix is currently held by Marina Bay, a bay near Central Area of Singapore. In 2008 around 110,000 tickets were made available for the country’s first Formula One race. With 23 corners and straights shorter than Monaco, it is very hard to overtake on this track without the aid of flag marshals. The 2008 Singapore Grand Prix was the first Formula One race to be held at night.
During the event, 108,423 metres of power cables, 240 steel pylons and around 1,600 light projectors with a total power requirement of 3,180,000 watts are used. With an illumination measurement of around 3000 lux, the lighting is four times brighter than the lights at sports stadiums.

The circuit is designed by KBR, Inc., a modification of the original one first proposed by Hermann Tilke.
