Here’s the initial schedule of the performances.
3 Support Races to Triple the Excitement
The fifth installment of the night race will have over 100 of the world’s finest racing cars competing at the Marina Bay Street Circuit. Not one, not two, but three top-line racing series will provide the back-up for the 2012 Formula 1 Singtel Singapore Grand Prix this September 21 to 23.
Making its first visit to the Singapore street circuit is GP2 – the series which has proved itself as the category of choice for future Formula One stars. Former GP2 graduates make up half of the 2012 Formula 1 grid, including reigning GP2 champion Romain Grosjean and 2008 Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton.
The seris, which was hailed in 2005 as “one of the brightest motor sport innovations since the combustion engine”, will stage their final round in Singapore.
In another first, the magnificent 4.5-litre V8 berlinettas in the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli Asia Pacific 2012, will also bring their championship-closing fifth round to Singapore. A field of 30 of these 570-horsepower machines will be a feast for the senses as they bring the unmistakable sounds of Maranello to the Far East. In the Ferrari 458 Challenge, the cars may look amazing but the drivers are the key components – whether in the Trofeo Pirelli for more professional drivers or in the Coppa Shell for “gentleman” drivers.
Back for its fifth year on the Singapore Grand Prix card is the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia, which brings a field of over two dozen 911 GT3 Cup cars contesting the 10th season of this immensely popular one-make category. With the Singapore event coming towards the climax of their 2012 season, the competition is going to be at its most intense as competitors test their mettle at the Marina Bay Street Circuit.
