The Formula One Singapore Grand Prix may or may not take place on our shores this year, but another race definitely is: Mario Kart Tour.
The mobile phone game launched the Singapore Tour on Jan. 12.
It is a limited-time event that will take place till Jan. 25.
The event features a new course called the Singapore Speedway and a Merlion-themed cart called the Roaring Racer.

It wouldn't be called the Singapore Course if the map doesn't include some Singapore icons.
Here are some that we spotted from the game trailer:
Marina Bay Sands and ArtScience Museum
A blink-and-you-miss-it Merlion on the right
Esplanade and Singapore Flyer
The Singapore Speedway is the 61st tour in the mobile game.
Vacation Luigi, a new variant, is also introduced in this tour of the game.
