The Singapore GP track has been modified in response to upgrading work to the city’s civic district, and which has prompted changes in the area of Turns 11-13.

It’s hoped that the revised corners will create more overtaking opportunities.

Organisers say that Turn 11 will be “realigned to sit tighter with the left hand side of Fullerton Road for a slightly slower corner speed compared to 2014. The left hand Turn 12 will also be modified slightly so that drivers now enter the left lane of Anderson Bridge.” In addition Turn 13 has been widened.

“It is a fantastic challenge to translate changes to Singapore’s Civic District into improvements to the Marina Bay Street Circuit,” said Engineering Track Manager Jonathan Giesecke. “I expect the modifications from Turns 11 to 13 will enable closer racing and the potential for additional passing opportunities.”
