Fast Cars in Singapore

Last weekend, Singapore's downtown streets were replaced with a glowing race track.
Inside the track, flat pointy cars drive around really fast a lot of times. They are kept inside a cage so they don't escape. For entertainment, I became a moderate fan of Timo Glock, who surprisingly came in third (this may be him):
When the cars go rogue and crash, the disciplinary car comes out to shame them. Below is what the spectator sees.Here I am demonstrating my moderate enjoyment, as well as the view that $100 tickets get you.You can get a better view by wearing a special uniform and keeping your hands above your head, but we did not know this in advance.

Thanks to my sister, whose stellar seats and photography provided these shots.
