Ferrari Challenge Asia Pacific
In this challenge, drivers will be in the Ferrari 458 Challenge EVOs which reach a top speed of 320 kilometers per hour (199 miles per hour). Alongside last year’s winner, Steve Wyatt, this year’s challenge will also feature homegrown talent Gregory Tro in the Trofeo Pirelli AM class. All of the Ferrari events will be held during daylight hours.
TCR International Series
The Touring Car international Series returns for its second consecutive year. Featuring cars from everyday manufacturers, competitors will be racing in cars such as the Honda Civic, Ford Focus, Opel Astra, and Volkswagen Golf GTI but with 2.0-liter supercharged engines, this race has proven to be a true crowd-pleaser. Furthermore, these cars don’t have the high-tech features common in racing, with no driver aids or telemetric data this is all about the driver and their relationship with their vehicle. Fan favorite and reigning champion Stefano Comini will once again be competing in a Volkswagen Golf.
Porsche Carrera Cup Asia
Porsche Carrera Cup Asia features drivers in the Porsche 911 GT3 with a 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine which maxes out at 315 kilometers per hour (195 miles per hour). Much of the Singapore audience will be cheering for local driver Andrew Tang, recently selected and supported by Porsche China. Yuey Tan is another homegrown and highly accomplished talent who will be competing in the privateer Class B.
Singapore Grand Prix
The marquis event is guaranteed to be the most exciting Singapore Grand Prix yet, with event organizers determined to make this the premier highlight of Singapore’s annual calendar of events. The 2015 event drew a staggering 85,000-strong crowd on each of the three days of the event, and this one promises to be even larger. The 5.065 kilometer track features a Formula One record-high 23 turns and with one of the longest pit lanes of the season, audiences can expect fewer pit stops and more racing action compared to other Formula One Events. This year, the cars are expected to be even louder than before thanks to changes made to the exhaust system. The Singapore crew works tirelessly over five months to set up the 800,000-square-meter Circuit Park so that the event runs smoothly and has the least impact possible on the city’s bustling downtown traffic come the Monday morning after the event.
