F1 fans are speeding to Singapore during September 24-27 for the world’s only Formula 1 night race.

F1 fans are speeding to Singapore during September 24-27 for the world’s only Formula 1 night race. The 2009 Formula 1 Singtel Singapore Grand Prix is expected to be one of the most thrilling to date. In anticipation of this event, Agoda.com, a leading Asia-based online hotel reservations company, has negotiated outstanding rates for some of the best hotels in Singapore.

The race itself is unique for the Formula 1 circuit because it is run on public roads and centered around the Marina Bay area, with the spectacular skyline of Singapore as a backdrop. It is regarded as one of the most dramatic races on the circuit due to the exciting course on which the cars can reach unbelievable speeds of up to 309 km per hour. The course also features an anti-clockwise direction, with 10 right-hand turns and 14 left-hand turns, some of which produce three Gs of force.

In addition to the 61 pulse-pounding laps, the Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix features spectacular entertainment away from the race. The F1 Rock Concert, starting on September 24, will feature numerous international sensations including Beyonce and the Black Eyed Peas. The star-studded lineup will also feature Taiwanese diva A-Mei, who will be performing alongside Jacky Cheung. Thirty-five lucky F1 ticket holders will also have an opportunity to bring a friend along for an exclusive Formula 1 drivers’ autograph session on September 24.

With only two weeks until race time and many tickets still available, travelers might be fearful of steep hotel prices. Fear not, because Agoda.com is offering a comprehensive array of hotels in Singapore, many with special offers for even greater savings.

Mr. Wilfred Fan, vice president of business development at Agoda, noted that, “Not only is the race itself tempting, but the megastars at the rock concert should be a huge draw. We’ve secured the hottest deals and special promotions for many of the most convenient Singapore hotels. Since Singapore has an efficient transportation network, the more than 100,000 F1 fans will never be too far from the race.”
