Indian F1 venue Buddh International Circuit to open today

Stay tuned for live updates from the media unveiling of Buddh International Circuit today at 3 PM

 

The venue for the Indian Formula One, Jaypee's Buddh International Circuit, has been kept under wraps all this while. It has created quite a bit of buzz about the facilities and if it will get ready in time for the big race. Even the track's FIA certification garnered eyeballs and speculation.

But the track is finally well and truly ready. It will in fact open to media today and for the first time anyone apart from FIA and Jaypee will get to check out the track.

The 5.4 km long racetrack gets its name from ‘Buddha’, the deity of peace, the racetrack’s new name also reflects its reference to the Gautam Budh Nagar District where the Jaypee Sports City is being made. The Buddh International Circuit is said to become the second fastest track on the Formula 1 calendar after Monza and expects the fastest lap times to be under 1min27s with average speeds crossing 210 kmph.
