Relive iconic F1 moments at the Twelve Years of Lights and Racing in the Lion City exhibition

After a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix is finally returning to our shores. This year’s race promises to be yet another exciting spectacle and a welcome sight after years of social distancing and restricted mobility.

As part of the festivities leading up to the main race, DZ Engineering SRL, a subsidiary of Dino Zoli Group, is hosting a photographic exhibition aptly titled Twelve Years of Lights and Racing in the Lion City.

The photographic exhibition is historically significant, revealing the evolution of the Singapore Grand Prix over the years. The track has seen multiple iterations, with the most famous change being the omission of the infamous Singapore Sling chicane which caught many drivers off guard from 2008-2012. Travel back in time and relive the sport’s greatest moments here on our track, and see snapshots of your favourite drivers battling it out over the course of the decade.

For images, the Dino Zoli Foundation has shortlisted the works of Italian photographer Flavio Mazzi, who is one of the most accomplished photographers in the world of Formula 1. His experience spans four decades, and his hearty archive of images includes over 450 Formula 1 Grand Prix competitions and team launches, ranging from private factory glimpses, exclusive VIP F1 events and a multitude of racing highlights.

Regardless of whether you’re an F1 fan or not, you can be immersed in the atmosphere of race cars through these vibrant photos, which tell the thrills and stories of the iconic events which have happened since its inception.

Since the debut of the Singapore Grand Prix 14 years ago, DZ Engineering SRL has "brought perfect homogenous lighting for two crucial aspects of the race": the safety of the drivers and the spectators as well as ensuring high-definition live television footage to those viewing remotely.

Singapore previously made it into the record books as the holder of the first ever night-time event in Formula 1 history . Set on the streets of Marina Bay and the Civic District, the night race is illuminated by Singapore’s stunning skyline, which became the iconic backdrop which now known by racing fans the world over.

This exhibition will be held from 28 September to 3 October 2022 at The Arts House, organised as an official event which is part of Grand Prix Season Singapore 2022. Opening hours are between 10am to 10pm, and admission is free for all guests.
