HotelTravel.com Formula 1 event guide spotlights the gorgeous grid girls of the Singapore Grand Prix this week, as the Lion City gets ready to roar from 24 to 26 September for the only night race on the F 1 calendar.
According to Chief Information Officer, Olivier Dombey, the HotelTravel.com Singapore Grand Prix event guide and its light hearted look at a day in the life of a Singapore grid girl reflects the nature of the event.
"The Singapore Grand Prix is unique in so many ways. Its massive entertainment appeal extends well beyond the race itself.
"Like all Formula 1 races it is first and foremost all about fast cars, but that doesn't tell the entire story. Another thing that its primarily male fan base notices straight away are the Singapore Grand Prix grid girls with their lovely smiles and stunning physiques," Mr Dombey, added.
Many veteran observers consider these young ladies to be the best looking female posse in any Formula 1 paddock.
Another bonus to the Singapore Grand Prix is there is much more to it than just the race itself. Leading up to the big weekend there are concerts galore and numerous other entertainment activities. These range from cultural events and attractive promotions at the island state's many shopping malls, clubs and restaurants that all come together to promote the destination’s tourism industry during race week.
Officially known as the Grand Prix Season Singapore, from September 17 to race day on September 26 visitors will be treated to parties, race-themed events, music concerts and exhibitions in addition to dining and shopping experiences.
Headliners making appearances throughout the Marina Bay circuit park include super star pop diva Mariah Carey, Missy Elliott, Daughtry, Adam Lambert, Sean Kingston, Raphael Saadiq and DJ Tiga.
To ensure everyone is kept smiling, some artists will be performing at more than one venue around the circuit park and Grand Prix ticket holders do not have to pay extra for the concerts.
So by the time 24 September rolls around, this race weekend will already be one of Southeast Asia's biggest social occasions. It's a 10-day party that just happens to include Formula 1's only night race featuring state-of-the-art race cars thundering past at hair raising speeds.
Another massive advantage of the Singapore Grand Prix over other Formula 1 venues is that the race takes place within the city centre. That combined with Singapore's efficient public transportation, makes for quick and convenient travelling between the circuit and selected hotels.
These include many of the most popular areas to stay in Singapore. For visitors looking to stay close to the race action look for Marina Bay hotels or Clark Quay hotels. Those who enjoy a mix of Formula 1 and shopping can consider hotels in Orchard Road.
