    Background: Motor racing fever has hit Singapore once again as Asia's top drivers and motor cycle riders prepare for Saturday's (1 April) Grand Prix.

    Workmen have been preparing the circuit for the last two weeks. Racing fans were already arriving in Singapore on Wednesday (29 March) and others from all over the continent are expected for race day.

    Exports are predicting the Japanese riders to take top honours in the motor cycle events. Their light-weight machines are now capable of higher speeds, and some racing observers are saying they may smash lap records on Saturday.

    Nobody has yet firmly predicted a winner for the Grand Prix itself. Several of Australia's top drivers be entered, and three of New Zealand's drivers may be racing.
