Local motor-racing fans will get a taste of what it's like to charge under the lights of the Marina Bay Formula 1 street circuit at the end of the month.
In the build-up to the Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix from Sept 19 to 21, race organisers Singapore GP are hosting a Rev Up Singapore! Kartnival at the Marina Promenade on Aug 31.
For the first time, motor-racing enthusiasts will be able to try go-karting, for up to 10 minutes, at the track's Turn 23 - next to the Singapore Flyer.
It will also be the first time fans will get to experience racing under the lights of the Formula 1 track.
Up to 500 slots are available for the Kartnival - those interested must register at www.singaporegp.sg/revupsingapore - which runs from 12pm to 8pm, and the event will also have a Formula 1 exhibit where patrons can race in Singapore GP simulators, along with food kiosks.
