Dear A.S.S. Editor
Singapore is host to the jewel of the Formula 1 race every September at the Marina Bay area, and has been hosting the event for close to 10 years now. However, no Singaporean driver has ever found himself racing in a formula 1 race before.
A food and beverage manager probably thought he was a F1 driver when he took part in an illegal race at Seletar Link in May 2015. He drove his wife’s Nissan GTR and raced at a top speed of 219km/h, which is more than triple the 60km/h speed limit on the road.
The budding F1 wannabe was racing against another man, who drove a Lamborghini. Both were caught by the Traffic Police who were conducting an operation to detect such illegal racing activities.
Such road idiots, who not only are a danger to themselves, but to other road users, should be taken off the road permanently. We have enough of drivers on the roads who thinks they are kings of the roads, without having to deal with idiots who want to show off the top speed of their cars, or their wife’s car, for this one man.
Police though did not report who won the illegal race. We’ll never know if the Lamborghini or the Nissan GTR was the faster car that night. It was also unknown if the man managed to speed away from his wife after losing her car to the police.
