Kart races, library roadshows and even a behind the scenes look at a Formula One garage.

These are just some of the new activities that Singaporeans can look forward to in the lead up to the Sept 19-21 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix.

Back for a second year, promoter Singapore GP's 2014 Rev Up Singapore! campaign will feature a mix of fresh and familiar initiatives with the aim of bringing the night race to the people.

The highlight of the campaign is the introduction of a complimentary karting training programme, which will see 120 young Singaporeans learn the sport before racing each other at the Marina Bay Street Circuit on Aug 30.
