Exclusive: Local bloggers immortalised on Singapore Grand Prix street circuit!

today

In February, Today newspaper held its Name That Turn contest and invited everyone to come up with unique names for turns 1, 7 and 10 of Formula 1's historic night race in the heart of the Lion City! Today, I can provide you with this exclusive, direct from the folks from Today newspaper and the Singapore Grand Prix organisers. They have decided to name all 24 turns after local bloggers!

Leonard Thomas who is one of the judges says, "Initially we called for suggestions to name only three of the turns but we were overwhelmed by the response so we thought we should name all 24 turns instead. One of the suggestions was to name them after local bloggers. We thought it's a great idea and decided to scrap the contest all together and we will name the turns after these bloggers ourselves. I can reveal to you three of the turns will be named after I.Z. Reloaded, Mr Brown and Miyagi. We will announce other names soon."

F1 Supremo Bernie Ecclestone says, "Naming all the turns and corners at the Marina Bay circuit after these popular Singapore bloggers is good for the Singapore Grand Prix and the worldwide television audience. People like to identify exciting corners and we are extremely happy with these name choices."

Update: Happy April Fools' Day people! Do read my other April 1 posts from past years: Sorry I'm shutting this blog down, ANNOUNCEMENT: Israel (IZ) Kamakawiwo'ole acquires IZ Reloaded! and Exclusive: Singtel WILL launch iPhones on 08.08.2008.
