MotoGP to Singapore?

New £150 million facility aims to attract top level racing

SINGAPORE COULD appear on future MotoGP calendars after the contract to build the country's first permanent race track was given the go-ahead.

SG Changi Private Limited won the contract to build the new Southeast Asian £150 million facility; director Eddie Koh outlined the plans to attract world class races.

"The completion date is slated for the end of 2011, and we hope to start events in 2012," he said.

"We have the intention to bring in a couple of international races like the GT events, and MotoGP."

The new facility will feature a 4-km racetrack, karting track, a quarter-mile drag racing track, motor museum and a commercial estate.
