Singapore night race confirmed

When Singapore was added to the F1 calendar back in May it was proposed that the race would be a night race and now it has been confirmed on the F1 site that it will be a night race on September 28, 2008.

This will be the only night race on the calendar and the first one in the history of F1 and it will be interesting to see how it goes. My only concern is about the safety of both the spectators and the drivers and as long as that can be guaranteed then it will be good.

Earlier this year there was also talk of a night race for the Melbourne race but it seems like the idea has been shot down which is good. It looks like what will happen instead is that there will be a twilight race and so instead of the race starting at 2 pm it will start at a later time of 3.30 pm.

I think this is a good compromise because it will mean that the race will finish round about 5 pm which is not too bad. Also the V8 race is scheduled to return next year and that will also be good for the local fans.

The Australian race will be the first race of the year and will be staged on March 16 and with the last race in Brazil on the second of November.
