SINGAPORE, 30 AUGUST 2022 — After a two-year hiatus, Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix is returning with a bang. This time, as part of the festivities leading up to the event, DZ Engineering SRL, a subsidiary of Dino Zoli Group which is owned and led by Dino, Monica, and Marco Zoli, shines brighter than ever with Twelve Years of Lights and Racing in the Lion City. The photographic exhibition will be held from 28 September to 3 October 2022 at The Arts House and is organised in tandem with the returning Grand Prix in celebration of 12 years of lighting up the exciting motorsport event in Singapore; an event also officially part of the Grand Prix Season Singapore 2022 (GPSS 2022).
Documenting 12 years of Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix history
Twelve Years of Lights and Racing in the Lion City lends inspiration from continental circuses – the professionals, transport and other support vehicles, and motorhomes placed adjacent to the racing circuits of motor sports events, such as Formula 1, which follow or precede the drivers in the various places where the competitions take place. Likewise, the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix has always brought exciting seasonal festivities with it. Here in Singapore, Twelve Years of Lights and Racing in the Lion City is set to retell the dazzling story of the first night-time event in all of Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix’s history, establishing itself as an important periodical component of Singapore’s culture and lifestyle.
Historically significant, this photographic exhibition reveals the evolution of Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix and is curated by Nadia Stefanel for the Dino Zoli Foundation. She has also worked on past cultural events for Motorsports in Singapore. In partnership with the Foundation, DZ Engineering SRL has also presented various shows related to the Motorsport industry since 2017 to bridge the sport and art in the backdrop of the city’s own rich culture.
This time round, the Dino Zoli Foundation has chosen to feature the work of Italian photographer Flavio Mazzi, who has become, over four decades, one of the most accomplished photographers in the world of Formula 1. His archive of images includes over 450 Formula 1 Grand Prix competitions, team launches, ranging from private factory glimpses, exclusive VIP F1 events to several other racing highlights.
DZ Engineering SRL lights the way for Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix
Since the debut of FIA Formula 1 World Championship 14 years ago in Singapore, DZ Engineering SRL, with its innovative installation system, has brought perfect homogenous lighting for two crucial aspects of the show: the safety of the drivers and the spectators as well as ensuring high-definition television footage for an unforgettable show. The first night-time event in Formula 1 history in 2008 was record-breaking for the brand, as the world saw Singapore’s stunning skyline as the backdrop of the first race held at the new Marina Bay Street Circuit.
DZ Engineering SRL has lit up the atmosphere of race cars and changed the game for watching motorsports ever since its debut. Twelve Years of Lights and Racing in the Lion City is a culmination of their enthralling efforts over the years, bringing attendees the opportunity to be immersed in the iconic atmosphere of race cars through vibrant photos that tell the thrills and story of the Race Night in Singapore.
“Even though F1 Grand Prix Singapore has been on hold for two years, DZ Engineering SRL has never really taken a break and we have continued working in different fields, honing our knowledge of Motorsports events around the World.” — Roberto Grilli, General Manager of DZ Engineering SRL
