Marina Bay Street Circuit


Start-Finish straight, again., originally uploaded by fox2mike.

In a week from now, Formula1 cars will line up along this very stretch to kick off the Singtel Singapore Grand Prix and create history.

I spent around 2 hours walking around the circuit yesterday and took a few snaps.

All the photos are handheld. No tripod or monopod. The lights are really quite bright as you can see :)

A few interesting things : BMW Sauber stuff, Turn 19 - where the cars go under the grandstands, Digiflags and concrete protective barriers.

For the rest of the snaps, clicky!

Yeah! They are pretty safe for the crowd :p Nothing is going to get past those barriers...I'm sure by design they'll be safe for the drivers too, or there will be additional shielding in front of the barriers.

Not too late really, cars will only start running on the track on Friday...so there's quite a bit of time left :)

I love the icons too! These were the first set I picked on LJ and I've never changed it hehe

Hey, any more news on a meetup for LJ F1ers? Turns out my Aus cellphone doesn't work here so I've got a Singapore SIM card now, but I have no idea what the number is, so I can't give you a number to get hold of me on if something is still going ahead!
