Raffles and a History Of Derring-Do: Singapore GP Preview


// Singapore GP

It is consummately simple to think about the Singapore Grand Prix as being a modern race, the first to be run under floodlights, on a new circuit, around a prestigious harbour development. Yet, prior to gaining its independence, in 1963, the original 1961 ‘Orient Year Grand Prix’, which was renamed ‘Malaysian GP’ was run on the Old Thomson Road route around Singapore, much like similar city center racing venues in Berlin, Germany, and Barcelona, Spain.
