Fourth Illumi Run brings both colour and motion

This year's Illumi Run will bring a riot of neon colours to Sentosa's Palawan beach on Dec 17.

Participants will run through five ultraviolet zones, where they will get doused in glow-in-the-dark paint along the route to the beat of music.

Registration for the non-competitive run, now into its fourth edition, opens today. Interested participants can sign up at www.illumirun.com/sg

Manor drop Haryanto, bring in French driver

JAKARTA• British motor racing team Manor announced yesterday it was dropping Indonesian Formula One driver Rio Haryanto and replacing him with Frenchman Esteban Ocon.

Haryanto became his nation's first F1 driver in January after signing a one-year contract with Manor, but his sponsors failed to bankroll the rest of his season.

"In the best interests of the team, we were forced to explore other options for the remainder of the season," Manor's racing director Dave Ryan said.
