Wink S'pore is Motorsport facility of the year - F1

Singapore has been named motorsport facility of the year

With its electric atmosphere, stunning cityscape backdrop and packed grandstands, September¡¯s Singapore Grand Prix was one of the highlights of the 2008 season. And the spectacular success of Formula One racing¡¯s first-ever night race has now been recognised at the Professional Motorsport World awards, which were held in the German city of Cologne on Tuesday.

The Marina Bay circuit was awarded the title of motorsport facility of the year at the annual ceremony and was commended for its revolutionary lighting system, and for the location of the track, which was situated right in the heart of the Asian city.

¡°We are delighted that the efforts of the entire team, the invaluable contribution from all our fantastic partners, and the strong collaborative efforts from the government agencies and businesses, particularly those around the circuit, have been recognised by this award¡± said Jonathan Hallett, director of media and communications for Singapore GP Pte Ltd.

¡°We have received a great many compliments from around the world since the running of the race in September, but this is an award given by our peers, the professionals who work in motor sports. It therefore is especially gratifying to receive this award.¡±

Other shortlisted candidates included the second new venue on the 2008 Formula One calendar, the Valencia Street Circuit in Spain.

Meanwhile, Toro Rosso's Franz Tost picked up the prize for team principal of the year.
