The first Singapore Grand Prix was held at the Thomson Road circuit which covered stretches of Old Upper Thomson Road and Upper Thomson Road. It was first held on 16 and 17 September 1961, and continued for 13 years after. The circuit had several challenging bends with interesting nicknames such as Circus Harpin, the snakes, Long Loop and the Devil’s Bend. The Circuit was closed in 1974.
