I go to rock concerts to hear music. I go to race meetings to watch motor racing. I do not need head bangers with my F1. If the organizers really want to put on an extravaganza, then run 10 categories of races as the lead-up to the top category F1. What a novel idea - racing cars at an F1 venue. Put on a “Retro” race and I’ll even take the Securitas Mk 1 Escort down.
Entertainment under lights
Having had my gripe, the Singapore Grand Prix will start at 7 p.m. Thai time on the Sunday evening. We will be watching from our perches at Jameson’s Irish Pub (Soi AR, next to Nova Park) and even though the racing commences at 7 p.m. join us around 6 p.m. for dinner (I do recommend the specials), and a beer and a chat before the race begins. We watch on the giant screen, with the BBC telecast which is of top value and there are no adverts! What more do you need?
