Night-time practice and qualifying for Singapore

Formula One racing’s governing body, the FIA, has confirmed the night-time schedule for the 2008 Singapore Grand Prix. The inaugural Singapore event, which will be held on a new street circuit, will take place on September 28.

As well as the race, which will get underway at 2000 hours local time, the preceding qualifying session on Saturday and the second Friday practice will also take place after dark, with both sessions similarly due to begin at 2000.

To allow the drivers to become accustomed to the new track in the light, however, the first practice on Friday will take place during the day from 1600, while Saturday practice will begin an hour later at 1700.

For detailed timetable information for the other 17 events, which will make up the 2008 Formula One world championship, visit the race section on Formula1.com.
