F1 Turns on the Lights

I guess F1 racing at night is a super big deal, mostly since before now it has never happened. Enter Singapore who has been prepping for some time now for this historic race. Thanks to a

floodlight system comprising 1,500 light projectors attached to 246 pylons, each 33ft tall, placed at 350-yard intervals around the circuit.

This makes it four times brighter than a floodlit football stadium and so dazzling that the drivers will need to wear special sunglasses.

 Power for the lights, linked by 67 miles of cable, is provided by 48 generators churning out 3,180,000 watts  –  enough to provide electricity for 2,400 apartments.

Anyways the pictures of the course look pretty dope. Like an awesome videogame level that I would love to crash my virtual car into over and over.

Check out the images below and for larger versions go to the original story here and for even nicer and higher-res images, as ever, my favorite picture blog, The Big Picture has a bunch.
