Indian grand prix is officially going into 2011 FIA formula 1 calender, as Indian GP is scheduled to go on October 30 to host 18th race of the season.
The circuit is part of a much larger development called Jaypee Sports City which will include not only a 3.16-mile Formula 1 circuit, but also a golf course, an equestrian centre and a 100,000-seat cricket stadium.
Heres a circuit plan for the track:
The track has been designed by F1 regular Herman Tilke, who has often come under criticism from fans, calling his tracks, ‘Tilkedromes’ thanks to their design which rarely aid overtaking.
Track Description :
Track will be 5.1 Km long & contains 16 corners, cars expected to get an average speed of 210 kmph & could reach 320kmph in main straight, and the track will give increasing overtaking opportunities.
Organizers are looking to balance the tickets pricing as par with IPL games, CWG, Test matches and all international events in India.
