The plan to restart Singapore’s stalled motorsport hub on the 41-hectare site in Changi started yesterday with the launch of a market sounding exercise.
The Singapore Sports Council (SSC) launched the exercise as a precursor to a potential re-tender in the first quarter next year. The SSC is also open to “interest and ideas” for “other sports and lifestyle concepts”.
In 2010, SG Changi won the bid to build a motorsport hub but the contract was mutually terminated late last year amidst reports that the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau launched a probe into alleged irregularities in the tender process and the winning bidders financial problems.
The New Paper spoke to the two companies who lost out to SG Changi two years ago, but Singapore Agro Agriculture and Haw Par Corporation were non-committal about if they would consider re-tendering.
