CCTV Script 25/09/14

— This is the script of CNBC's news report for China's CCTV on September 25, Thursday.

Welcome to the CNBC Business Daily, I'm Qian Chen.

So Formula 1 may be over here in Singapore.

But for those who daydream about what it must feel like taking the turns as they race against the likes of Lewis Hamilton--

Well, you're in luck.

There's a company in Singapore that allows you to do just that.

And while filming CNBC's new luxury travel show, called First Class, our very own Susan Li seems to have developed a "lead foot".

Singapore has more Ferrari's and Lamborghinis per capita than almost anywhere else in the world.

"So you know, Singapore is a car town, and nothing has emphasized that more than the Singapore F1 race. So here in Singapore, you can also try a little bit of the circuit yourself, by going to Ultimate Drive, where we've picked up a Ferrari for a super drive."

A few adjustments here, a bit of lessons there, and I'm off. Before long, I'm ready to tear up the road. Taking the corners along Singapore's F1 circuit.

[Susan in car, speaking and driving] "This is quite a powerful machine I'm driving here in a Ferrari, but it's quite interesting. It's great with the roads in Singapore because they're so windy and twisty, and it really shows you the strength and the agility of the vehicle as well. Almost feels like you're driving in the F1 race!"

CNBC's luxury travel show, called First Class, launches this weekend.

And we kick off the new monthly series with a look at Singapore -- and discover how the city once dubbed Sing-a-BORE, has somehow gotten cool.
