Although most eyes will be on the main race, Marina Bay Street Circuit will also play host to support races. Making their exciting debut on the Marina Bay Street Circuit as well as their first race in Asia is the all-female international single-seater motor racing championship, W Series.

All W Series’ cars and equipment are the same specification and managed by the series, ensuring a level playing field. A clear difference maker is that all races and championships are won by the most talented drivers, rather than those with the wealthiest backers or the fastest cars.

Singapore will host the seventh round of the 2022 season, which is currently led by reigning double champion, Jamie Chadwick of Jenner Racing. The 24-year-old Briton has won the first five races of W Series’ record 10-race 2022 campaign.

The Arrival Of The TSS The Super Series

The series, debuting in Singapore for the first time, features an exciting mix of GT3/ GTM and GTC supercars. Spectators can expect to see the likes of Toyota, Lexus, Audi, Porsche, Aston Martin, Mercedes AMG, Bentley, Lamborghini, and Ford Mustang on the streets of the Marina Bay Street Circuit. 27 drivers from across the world be participating in the TSS at the Singapore Grand Prix.

Naturally all eyes will be fixated on the Formula 1 race. Reigning Champion, Max Verstappen arrives in Singapore as the odds-on favourite to win. A win in Singapore, a race he hasn’t won yet, could seal the 2022 Championship for the Red Bull driver. That is in the event his closest rivals Sergio Perez (Red Bull) and Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) finishes fourth or lower and eighth or lower respectively.
