Singapore Grand Prix Odds debut in ’08 at SBG Global

November 30, 2010 Auto Racing

Although the Singapore Grand Prix is the newest event on the racing calendar and lacks the historical roots of many of the other F1 odds events.

It is sure to be one of the greatest grand prix odds event on the schedule.  With a breathtaking city and sea backdrop and a challenging layout through the port city’s downtown, it’s hard not to think that grand prix odds fans won’t be crazy for this event. If ever there was a city made to host an F1 odds event, it’s Singapore.

After years of banning all types of auto racing from go-karting through grand prix odds events, the island nation’s government finally lifted the ban.  The government then eagerly courted the F1 odds officials to host a race and of course it didn’t take long before the city had a grand prix odds event of their own.

The layout for the course should easily become a classic on the grand prix odds circuit and will certainly be held for many years to come. The course winds through the historic colonial district with plenty of straits over the water and across the several bridges that litter the grand prix odds course.  After crossing the river and running across the bay on an elevated causeway the grand prix odds course then tacks west and passes through the financial district on the opposite side of the bay. Studded with dozens of skyscrapers this setting makes for interesting scenery that is sure to appeal to grand prix odds fans.

The course is set up to be quite fast by road course standards, but as it boasts at least six hairpin turns it will also challenge the skills of the top F1 odds drivers. There should be plenty of passing opportunity which will ensure a great grand prix odds competition but it will hardly be a drag race. At just over three miles in length the grand prix odds event will consist of 61 laps.

Since this is the inaugural grand prix odds event it’s tough to pick a favorite, but as the course is somewhat similar to the Melbourne grand prix odds event, an event that Kimi Raikkonen has done quite well on, the flying Fin may the one to watch in the grand prix odds.
