I for one support those who are really affected by the Singapore F1 in town, with all the traffic diversions and all, it is not something I am looking forward to.
However, I do support the F1 being in Singapore, since they create tourist arrivals which means more money for some, hoteliers alike. However, this is my latest suggestion to the F1 committee…
BE REAL, GET REAL… RACE ON THE LIVE TRACKS, meaning you do your racing on the actual streets , with real traffic moving in and out of the area. Just as any illegal racer will do…
The best and suitable location:
TUAS CHECKPOINT , TUAS MARINA with the AYE open for real use (so ok, we cordon off special zones for them)
The time?? 5.30pm – 9pm when the Singapore Malaysia traffic is the most heaviest and you get to race against the real racers of East Asia – The Malaysian Commuter Motorcyclist… NO SPEED LIMIT for everyone! So you get head to head and race on the live 3 lane with cars and bikes and the Causeway Link CW3 & CW6 buses trying to get home….. Little modifications will be made..so you get to race from Ahmad Ibrahim PIE roundabout to Tuas , turn left at Coca Cola, Zip Zap again onto the main highway , hairpin U turn into the road again.
My Suggested Route:
Flag off at JALAN AHMAD IBRAHIM Southward (so ok, close that road, go against the flow )
Tuas Road, Right into Tuas Ave 3, Right into Tuas Ave 3, into AYE Heading Tuas Checkpoint (MAIN FLOW – LIVE TRAFFIC!!!)
U Turn at Second Link (WATCH OUT FOR THE CW3 BUSES) into AYE and HARD LEFT U TURN into PASIR LABA ROAD
U Turn at PIE Upper Jurong Road, Head into AHMAD IBRAHIM (LIVE TRAFFIC!!!)
STRAIGHT ON, Pit stop at COCA COLA!
That with no POLICE CORDON or special check etc…
That … is what I can call, RACING….
Of course, they have to redo the Pasir Laba Road…but it is worth it…
Grandstand at AHMAD IBRAHIM stretch, Pasir Labar and a few others…
Many can watch on the side with no guard rails….
How much it will affect the traffic.. none..but the F1 drivers better be super careful with the crazy riders and bus drivers and more…..That will test their skills and nerves…
Make it 200 laps….DAY TONA racing… on F1….
Only make ONE LANE RED ZONE …so no one can enter just like the Red Bus Lane…. Give them a bit of safety if they want to use ONE lane..they want to test their luck, overtake on live road….
What say you, FORMULA ONE? TONY FERNANDEZ? RICHARD BRANSON??? ALONSO?
F1 racing in Singapore as well as neighboring Malaysia have seen their tourism grow because of the races. It is a positive development.ReplyDelete
