MARK Webber will take to the streets of Singapore this weekend for a trial run of the city-state's proposed Formula One (FOON.UL) race, the Straits Times reports today (AEST).
Singapore is in talks with Formula One over the hosting of a street circuit grand prix, which may be held at night, under floodlights - a first for the sport.
The report said Webber (Red Bull) will drive a Porsche 911 GT3 for Saturday's test run "within the legal speed limit"
"We didn't have enough time to get the clearance for a high-speed run," Jyn Wee, Red Bull's brand manager here, was quoted as saying.
The GT3 has a top speed in excess of 300k/ph and can go from 0-100k/ph in less than 5sec.
