Singapore Grand Prix (need Help)

Postby klord » Tue, 13 May 2008 2:06 am

Hi Guys,

anyone know where i can find what's the problem singapore was facing when it's trying to get the GP to be held in Sg?

Any website that i can find detail on lighting which going to use in the upcoming GP?

What are the precautions Sg is taking to protect the drivers (when in race)?

Thank you.

So you are asking us to do all of your research for you. Is that it? Plagiarism at it's best. I hear that's big in schools here. Your fingers apparently work as you got here. Now try google.

not asking u guys to do, but guide me to website that present more detail problem that SG face, but not those official website that show what SG do, or did. i have been searching for some times, the only infor i just found is on lighting issues, but i need to find out what are the political problem, etc...

have you tried getting in touch with the organisers? like, y'know, being truthful and telling them you're doing an assignment and like to interview them that kind of thing...

You could try having a look round these sites - they often include discussions on 'behind the scenes' stuff...

www.autosport.com

www.pitpass.com

I believe one of the main issues was the concerns expressed by drivers over safety in a night race, especially if we get a Singapore downpour... Although the lighing will be bright it's obvioulsy not the same as natural daylight.

Anyway, I'm certainly looking forward to it.
