TRAVEL | SINGAPORE | The Fullerton Hotel at Turn 14

The Fullerton Hotel, Singapore.

As many people would know by now, Singapore will be hosting the world 1st ever Night Time F1 race, scheduled to be held on the 28th September 2008.

It will be a street race, and the Fullerton Hotel will be one of the witnesses of this amazing race.

The race will be held within the vicinity of the Marina Bay area, and the Fullerton Hotel is at Turn 14.

If you wanna be a part of the historic event, book your tickets and hotel now, but mind you, the hotel along the race track cost at least $1,000 per room per night! And you have to book it for the "5 days" weekend!

The flood lights are now being tested at St. Andrew's Road, the intensity of the race light is about 3,000 Lux, oh FYI, the normal street light is about 100 Lux, where as the normal sunlight is about 50,000 Lux!

For sure, the road will need to be resurfaced, and the manhole covers need to be welded, or otherwise the G-Force from the over 300km/h F1 car will pull them open!

Lovely picture of the Fullerton!

This is one race (not that I watch any much) that I will (try to) watch - without spending $5000. Can't wait to see how Singapore will look like for this race.
