At present, all F1 races are held during daylight hours, however, Singapores Singtel Grand Prix is to be held during the night. Beginning from September 26 to 28, this will be the first ever night racing in F1 history.
Malaysia is also installing a lighting system to its Sepang circuit to make formula 1 night races possible.

On September 28, 2008 at 8 pm, the first Formula 1 race ever held at night will begin in Singapore. Sixty-eight miles of power cable will provide juice to 1,500 light projectors mounted on 240 pylons around the track. What does that mean? It means three billion watts of power -- about four times brighter than a sports stadium. And that might make it the only night time race that requires sunglasses.
