F1 Success, So Singapore Aims for Tour France Next

The Formula One Singapore Grand Prix is such a success that Singapore is now aiming to bring in the Tour France.
“We have proven that we can host world class sporting events,” said Minister of Tourism Mr. Lai Chia Hong. “So we want to do more.”
“But Singapore’s exposure to the Wall Street meltdown means we won’t have so much money,” said Minister of Tourism Lai Chia Hong. “So maybe instead of all these petrol-guzzling fast cars, we can go for fast bicycles.”
According to Mr. Lai, the Tour France is a very possible target, notwithstanding that Singapore is not anywhere near France.
“Imagine the peloton racing up Bukit Timah, or across Xiao Gui Lin in Bukit Batok,” said the Minister. “Can, what.”
He added that Singapore’s terrain has some advantages that France lacks, “like less dogshit all over the place, and people with less body odour.”
In the meantime, Singapore will be using the F1 experience to develop its own motor racing industry. “The traffic police inform me that we have a lot of local speeding enthusiasts. So maybe we can help to nurture our Initial D bengs and their zhng’d up hatchbacks into becomin tomorrow’s Alonsos or Massas.”
The Minister said that perhaps F1 standards are too high for our local bengs. “But maybe for them, F9 can.”
