Indian Grand Prix - Greater Noida, 10/27/2013

Indian Grand Prix

Buddh International Circuit, New Delhi

After the recent entries of Singapore and Korea in 2011 the Formula One Championship was joined by another stage in the Asian region. The Indian Grand Prix, held on the Buddh International Circuit in Noida, a suburb of New Delhi. The brand-new circuit, planned by Hermann Tilke, is 5,125 metres long, while the grandstands offer 130,000 seats for the spectators and first-class infrastructures for those, who have to work. The track offers a first sector with long straights, interrupted by slow corners, followed by a high-speed sector and the third part with some slow corners and the home straight. Thanks to 4 million tons of soil used during the construction, the circuit offers some interesting slopes. The challenge the track has to offer as well as the enthusiastic spectators enabled the Indian GP to become a great success with drivers and teams.

Keep an eye on
Corners no. 10 and 11: they could be considered one corner with 180 degrees and a slight banking, with a vertex inspired by the famous corner no. 8 of the Istanbul Park. The drivers take this corner with over 200 km/h and lateral acceleration reaching 4G. The S-corners 8 and 9, just like 13 and 14 are fast changes of direction taken in fifth gear at over 200 km/h.
