If you are interested in sports events around the world, and specifically have an interest in car racing, the Indian Formula 1 event would be a great one to watch. The Buddh International Circuit is located in Gautam Buddh Nagar district, near New Delhi, the capital city of India. The Buddh Circuit has been molded into one of more exciting race tracks of the world. It is perfectly suited for the requirements of the motorcycles and cars that race on the track.
The Spyker F1 team was bought by business tycoon Vijay Mallya in 2010. This was when he renamed it as Force India. The first Indian Grand Prix was originally scheduled to be held in 2010, but was pushed to 2011 due to some setbacks. One setback was the farmers who owned the land that was desired for the construction of the race track. The 300 farmers expressed their discontent that the land was not going to be used for industrial purposes, but this matter was resolved eventually.
The 5.14 kilometre track features dramatic elevation changes, high-speed straight lanes, and 16 corners for an exciting motor racing experience. BIC, as it is commonly called, adheres completely to the regulations and standards to make it one of the best tracks in the world. This track was designed by German race-track designer and architect Herman Tilke. It is situated in Jaypee Sports City, 2,500 acres that will house a cricket stadium, hockey arena, sports training academy, and accommodations for other sports.
It is the mission of the company to explore innovative ways to promote sports as a lifestyle in the country. The Indian Formula 1 racing event is sure to play a great role in this, as many people are excited about the event. It is likely to attract the attention of the world, and lead people from all over to view India (and New Delhi in particular) as a leader in the sports arena. The citizens are extremely proud that they finally have gotten the ability to have an event as part of the Fl series.
It is a wonderful time for the Indian Grand Prix at the New Delhi F1 Circuit. As other Asian countries such as Malaysia and Korea have been successful in the F1 Circuit, it has catapulted the Indian Grand Prix on to the F1 calendar. Since the F1 races are one of the most popular and most watched sports events today, it is a good move for the country to make. The first event for the New Delhi F1 Circuit Grand Prix was held between October 28th through the 30th, 2011. This much awaited event comes after the shelving of several past Indian races from being on the F1 calendar.
Now let´s see what the next race at this great circuit has in store for us!
