Friday Photo: the Grand Prix circuit

Events, Photo Friday — By mariannerogerson on September 24, 2010 at 9:18 am

All the excitement this weekend is about the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix, so today’s Friday Photo shows an aerial shot of some of the race track.

The long straight road you see towards the left of the photo, beneath the Swissotel the Stamford is St Andrews Road. The next few nights will see the Formula 1 drivers hurtling along this road towards us at high speed, before making the sharp turn left, this side of the Singapore Cricket Club. They will then disappear off to the right of the picture, across the Anderson Bridge, before returning back along Esplanade Drive, the long bridge across the water to the right of the picture. They then continue up along the road, past the Esplanade Theatre on the right, before veering right off the picture towards the Singapore Flyer and the pit lanes.

Of course the track is made all the more spectacular by being at night, and lit up to full effect. If you’re in Singapore to watch the race – then have a great weekend. If not, then make sure you tune in to watch it from wherever you are.
