Singapore track gets in-principle approval

Singapore's Grand Prix circuit has received the provisional approval of Formula One's ruling body, the FIA.

The street circuit, which will host the first Singapore Grand Prix next year, has received in-principle approval from the FIA, meaning construction work will now be allowed to begin.

The FIA will conduct a series of inspections on the ongoing progress in the upcoming months, and the full licence will be granted during the final inspection, which will take place in the same week of the race, scheduled for September next year.

"After months of poring over the drawing board, we are now one step closer to our dream," said Deputy Chairman of Singapore GP Colin Syn.

"However, there is no time to celebrate - it is now full speed ahead for us to get this race on the road."

Organisers said the only outstanding decision is whether the race will be held at night.

The 5.067km street track consists of 14 left hand turns and 10 right handers.
