There are currently nine PECs in Leipzig, Silverstone, Atlanta, Le Mans, Los Angeles, Shanghai, Germany’s Hockenheimring, Franciacorta, Italy, and, since October 2021, in Tokyo. In 2021, the newest PEC in Toronto was announced, scheduled to be complete in 2024.

When launched, it will be Singapore’s first permanent driving-focused facility, said Singapore Tourism Board (STB) chief executive Melissa Ow as reported in CNA.com

Singapore is projected to receive between 15 million and 16.5 million international visitor arrivals in 2024, with tourism receipts expected to reach between S$27.5 billion and S$29 billion, said Ms Ow.

“This is no mean feat because the upper bound of our forecast, if we achieve it together, will be a new record for Singapore,” she continued.

Last year, Singapore saw 13.6 million international visitor arrivals and S$27.2 billion in tourism receipts, “almost a full recovery” to pre-pandemic numbers in 2019, said Ms Ow.
