F1 Singapore 2008

Post by rule » Wed, 25 Jul 2007 12:28 pm

Does anybody know the likely date for the race? The only info I have is September or October 2008. I have a few friends who "registered" their interest to visit around the time. I imagine hotel prices will shoot through the roof - any info on this from anyone?

Hi Rule,

The date is not announced yet. I have read previously on newspapers that Singapore government would apply a special increased tax rate to hotels for F1 period. The prices will boost once the actual date is officialized.
With my kind regards

Formula One racing’s governing body, the FIA, has confirmed the calendar for the 2008 world championship. The addition of races in Singapore and Valencia in Spain, combined with the omission of a US Grand Prix, makes for 18 rounds - one more than in 2007.

The Australian Grand Prix will kick off proceedings on March 16, followed by Malaysia and Bahrain, before the championship heads to Europe. Turkey has been brought forward to May, while the sole North American round in Canada provisionally retains its traditional June slot.

The Valencia race, to be known as the European Grand Prix, will take place in August, while the other new event, the first-ever Formula One night race, will be staged in Singapore in late September. The season will finish in Brazil at the start of November.

The 2008 calendar in full:

16 Mar Australia
23 Mar Malaysia
6 Apr Bahrain
27 Apr Spain
11 May Turkey
25 May Monaco
8 Jun Canada*
22 Jun France

3 Aug Hungary
24 Aug Europe**
7 Sep Italy
14 Sep Belgium
28 Sep Singapore**
