Ten students from the Metta School got the ride of their lives on Saturday in Ferrari supercars as they were whisked from Changi Airport to the F1 Pit Building. They were treated to the ride by Singapore Airlines and car enthusiast group Scuderia FSG. SIA organised a carnival at the F1 Pit Building on Saturday, one of the events leading up to this year's Formula One Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix next month. The students, aged 17 to 19, travelled through Tampines, Pasir Ris, Bishan and Ang Mo Kio, before arriving in town. They were welcomed by the Minister of State for National Development, and Trade and Industry, Dr Koh Poh Koon (fourth from left), who joined the students in trying their hand at changing an F1 car tyre. The Metta School is a special education institution that caters to students with mild intellectual disability or mild autism.
