Singapore Grand PrixFollowing the huge demand of tickets for the inaugural Singapore Grand Prix, scheduled for 26-27-28 September 2008, the race organisers have increased the spectator capacity of the street circuit that will host the first ever night race. The 1500 extra seats were achieved by extending the grandstand on the final corner and by building another stand on Turn 14.

Micheal McDonough, the director of the Singaporean Grand Prix, has also announced that the designation of corner numbers has been altered. “What was Turns 10 and 11 was actually three corners close together, which were created to provide the right corner speed due to the lack of straight ahead run off in this part of the circuit. As it’s created around what is in effect the approach to one corner, it was determined that one turn number (10) should be used, with A, B, and C to determine the changes in geometry through the turn,” he explained.
