Since its de­but in 2008, the Sin­ga­pore Grand Prix has be­come a firm favourite among For­mula One afi­ciona­dos and ca­sual rac­ing fans alike. With Sin­ga­pore’s unique sky­line serv­ing as a back­drop, a ca­pac­ity of 80,000 and a cir­cuit set on the city-state’s streets, the event re­sults in near-shut­down for the Ma­rina Bay area as it be­comes a three­day fes­ti­val of rac­ing, mu­sic, drink­ing and din­ing. As ever, the or­gan­is­ers have put just as much ef­fort into the en­ter­tain­ment on of­fer as the race it­self, with a mu­si­cal lineup that in­cludes Calvin Har­ris, Ari­ana Grande and iconic Bri­tish pop band Du­ran Du­ran, spread across four stages.
