The SIA Formula 1 Grand Prix is set to start in Singapore next week and organisers have again invited 9 religious leaders to pray for and bless the track before the event.
A ceremony was held at the track yesterday (Sept 10) where the religious leaders prayed for good weather and the safety of all those involved in the race including drivers, teams, officials and spectators.
The nine different faith groups that were represented were Catholicism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Sikhism, Judaism, Jainism, Zoroastrianism and the Bahai faith.
Organisers explained that they didn't want to leave anything to chance and that's why they continued the tradition of bringing in religious leaders to bless the track and pray.
