054_F1’s first night race
The World’s first F1 night race will take place in Singapore on 28th September 08 (tomorrow) at 20:00 local time. Since the race begins at night, lighting is a key factor to ensure safety of drivers. The system, realised by Italian-based Valerio Maioli SpA, requires about 3000 lux to illuminate the circuit within the city’s Marina Bay area up to 4 times brighter than a typical stadium. This has resulted in a pretty interesting urban phenomenon – Illuminating City.
