Fewer road closures for this year's Singapore Grand Prix

The Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix is returning for its third year next month, from September 24 to 26.
And this year, organisers have said road closures would be further minimised.
Roads will now be closed on six days - half of what it was in 2008 when Singapore held the inaugural race, and one day less than last year.

There were road closures on seven days in 2009.

The Singapore Tourism Board said the reduction is possible because of experience gained in the first year and basic installations already in place.

Race fans who also love music can look forward to watching Mariah Carey, Missy Elliot, Daughtry and Adam Lambert among other performers at the Padang.

For the first two years, more than 190,000 spectators are said to have watched both races live, 30 per cent of whom are foreign visitors.
