Shifting gears into overdrive with a seamless fusion of high-octane car racing, delectable gastronomy, and electrifying “live” music performances, the inaugural Sprint Fest 2023, opens FREE to the public, will blaze the trail at the picturesque beachfront and green turf venue, Sentosa Palawan Green, on 22 and 23 July 2023, from 11am to 9pm daily.

Akin to the glory days of cars whizzing by at top speeds in Kallang carpark, Sprint Fest 2023 will see the return of grassroot motorsports with the first-ever Auto Gymkhana Round at Sentosa.

The race will culminate in the finals on 23 July, where the top male and female drivers will drive home the prestigious opportunity to represent Singapore in the highly-anticipated Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) Asia Pacific Motorsports Championship 2023 to be held at Sepang International Circuit, Malaysia in September 2023.
