8 nights, 3 at Marina Bay Sands OR Raffles, 5 at Fairmont Singapore with 6 spectacular corner views from Track-View rooms at the hotel. Also be very close to the cars, by viewing from the Swissotel at turn 9. VIP airport transfers by limousine.
This exotic F1 Race is now in its tenth year and since the Singapore Grand Prix inaugural race in 2008, the Singapore Airlines sponsored event has fast become a huge favourite with formula one fans with its one special unique feature; it is the only race on the Formula 1 calendar which is held at night and we have been offering Singapore Grand Prix Hospitality Packages to the event ever since. The event is held under the superb floodlight Marina Bay track, some 1500 floodlights light up the entire circuit with excitement. This race can be compared to the Monaco GP street race as it is also held throughout the streets of the host city, but this time they compete at night and this means seeing the amazing city of Singapore close down many of its streets to allow the F1 track to be completed and come alive with the roar of their engines.
Way back in May 2007 the news emerged that a deal had been struck between Formula One Management CEO Bernie Ecclestone and Mr Ong Beng Seng (businessman) and the Tourist Board of Singapore and since then it has been a huge hit because of sights, sounds and surroundings. Also with the time zone in Singapore being many hours ahead, this means that its a great time to broadcast for audiences in Europe to enjoy all the action in the afternoon.
Singapore GP Future Is Secure Until 2021
Race Officials and Liberty Media have agreed a deal to carry on having the Grand Prix at the Marina Bay Circuit for at least another 4 years. This signature race in the F1 calendar was in doubt when the motorsports billionaire Bernie Ecclestone in a interview with a German magazine (Auto Motor Und Sport on Sunday) in November 2016 stated that the deal set giving rights for Singapore to host the Grand Prix will not be extended after 2017 as the Singapore side have backed out. This has not pleased Bernie and he mentioned to the publication "there is no gratitude" which referred to the auto-makers and organisers for Singapore. Also stating "Yes, the Grand Prix has cost Singapore a lot of money, but we’ve also given them a lot of money." This would be a shame as this event is one of the popular and is spectacular viewing with its night time atmosphere. So we recommend to book early one of Grand Prix Packages to Singapore soon to avoid disappointment and you never know it could be the last at this iconic location.

2008 and Singapore sets up the GP in the Marina Bay Circuit
Whilst there were Grand Prix Events help in Singapore in the 1960’s early 1970’s (held at Thomson Grand Prix Circuit), only since 2008 have we seen what has now undoubtedly become one of the most spectacular races on the calendar. The race track is a real challenge for the drivers being 5.073KM (3.267 miles) and featuring a breath taking 23 corners. It is held in 30 degree heat and upwards of 70% humidity.
The spectators are treated to a wonderful spectacle, but it is the drivers that can suffer and they can actually lose some 3kgs in weight during the hot and humid race event. The cars pass many famous Singapore landmarks including the Parliament building, Fullerton Hotel, they cross the Anderson Bridge, pass the amazing Theatre’s on the bay, The Singapore Flyer and finish on the amazing main straight which has been totally man-made on reclaimed.
Record Laps of the Circuit
The current lap record is held by the Aussie driver Daniel Ricciardo for Red Bull at 1:47.189 from this year’s event in 2016. Also this year’s pole position (2016) time was set by Nico Rosberg in the Mercedes on a 1:42.584 (record time for qualifying) timed lap and he went on to lead from the front to win his 8th win of the season.
Singapore has also set itself apart from many other Grand Prix events by offering live concerts and a real party atmosphere after the event, making this an event not to be missed. With performances from Beyonce, Katy Perry, Maroon 5, Shakira, Mariah Carey, Adam Lambert, Chris Daughtry and Missy Elliot, the Singapore GP really do put on a spectacular show over the full F1 weekend. We look forward to 2017 GP and what acts will be performing then, we can’t wait!
The History of the Singapore GP
This Formula One extravaganza was first held in Singapore in 1961, but was called the ‘Orient Year Grand Prix’ only to be changed to the Singapore Grand Prix in 1965 when they became independent and the race was held on the Thomson Road Circuit which was notorious for being one of the most dangerous circuits in the world and after many deaths and problems with incorporating certain safety measures, the Grand Prix in Singapore was stopped in 1973 and would not return here for another 35 years.
Restaurants and Bars to visit in Singapore
Singapore has for decade been a great place to sample a taste of the Orient, but recently the city has seen a major change in its culinary delights and the move has been from a street-food Shangri La to a high-end cuisine destination that has been accelerated by the influx of Michelin Star awarded chefs from all over the world.
