Speed... water... danger... they are the three ingredients that make professional powerboat racing the most death-defying sport in the world. At speeds often exceeding 200mph, brave pilots launch themselves through wind and waves for a chance at victory. Their boats are marvels of science and engineering - but even the best pilots face disaster.
This is an engineering story about building the world’s ultimate multi-function sports complex. Costing more than a billion US dollars, this ambitious project includes an ingenious indoor aquatic centre, a multi-purpose arena, water sports centre, and retail facilities. Follow the construction team over 2 years as they face tight deadlines, unexpected obstacles, and high risk construction procedures. It’s all in the story of Sinapore’s Field of Dreams...
