F1 circuitNoida: The Buddh International Circuit, India’s 1st Formula One circuit, was unveiled to the world on Tuesday, just 12 days before the opening Airtel Indian Grand Prix on October 30.

Jaypee Sports International Ltd has impelled in $400 million (Rs 2000 crore) in the construction of the track, which showed in its worldclass look and finish.

More than 5,000 workers and 300 engineers and officers have worked round-the-clock to acquire the track over 350 hectares ready in time.

Jaypee Group founder Jai Prakash Gaur told the media that “The CWG experience was really shameful. We at the JPSI took the F1 track as a challenge and its success will be a fitting statement to the world. We are aware of the fact that India can’t afford another debacle.”

“About 70% of the tickets have already been sold. 90 % of the corporate boxes are also sold and only about five are remaining,” JPSI MD Sameer Gaur said.

The F1 carnival has already started rolling into the country. “A total cargo of about 600 tonnes is supposed to come in. About 70 containers have already reached the track from Yeongam (South Korea) without any hitch and are safely in the team garages,” Gaur informed.
