Singapore considers permanent race facility
Singapore is considering building a permanent circuit for major motor sport events, a report said Monday, as negotiations continued over a possible Formula One event in the city-state.

The Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports could build the permanent track to host MotoGP motorcycle races, the A1 Grand Prix and other events but not Formula One, the Today newspaper said, citing unnamed sources.

Government officials could not immediately comment on the report.

The circuit, 3.5 kilometres (2.2 miles) to four kilometres in length, could cost up to 200 million US dollars, Today said.

The F1 event being talked about for Singapore would be a street race, not a track event.

Minister of State for Trade and Industry, S. Iswaran, said Friday that negotiations about a possible Singapore F1 event were proceeding well.

"From what I have gathered from the private sector, they are going well," he said on radio 938Live.

Mark Webber, director of the Grand Prix Drivers Association, on Saturday took a "leisurely" drive in a non-race car round the 4.8-kilometre street route proposed by designer Hermann Tilke.

Webber, of Red Bull Racing, said more research was needed into a plan to hold the race at night.

There is currently no night event on the F1 calendar but Mokhzani Mahathir, chairman of the Sepang International Circuit (SIC) in neighboring Malaysia, said Friday that his circuit was ready to host such an event next year. Turkish Press
